I Have, Who Has Games.




This is one example of the game we play every day at Morning Meeting.  I have made a set for each Science and Social Studies unit as well as general review sets.  I get most of the shapes of the Dollar Store; although this set of hot air balloons was made from a template.  I always laminate the cards so that they will last.  Here's a link if you want to download a Microsoft Word document to make your own game (click here.)


Zoom:  the Game

The student who begins the activity says “Zoom!” and quickly turns his head quickly to face a classmate on either her right or left. That student passes the Zoom to the next person, and so on around the circle. You can challenge the group to go faster and use a stopwatch to time them.  Source:  Responsive Classroom.

Although these are over a year old, they show examples of the two types Morning Messages I post in my classroom:


I'll be showing and discussing more about Morning Messages next week, but I often go back and review the ones I've written and use them again.


I'm still on my Family Medical Leave.  I heard back from the social worker from Hospice about availability in the Sawtelle Hospice House which is close to my house.  My father has been living with me for almost 5 weeks.  Last night he was trying to "sneak" onto the chair next to his bed (I guess he does this every night), and he fell.  My husband and I managed to get him back into the bed, but...I need to keep him and me safe.  Life is full of difficult decisions, and he claims he'll be "homesick" at the Hospice House.  Of course, I'll just be sitting at the Hospice House instead of my own house, but at least I know my father will be safe and have around the clock care.

  1. I am sorry about your father. My husband and I found ourselves in a situation like this a number of years ago with his mother. We had to place her in a home for her own safety.

  2. So sorry to hear about your dad. I hope the transition to the hospice house goes smoothly for all of you.

  3. Such a difficult situation with your father. I hope things can remain as peaceful as possible. My family has nothing but positive things to say about hospice. Take Care.
