I'm linking up with my sweet blogging buddy Reagan for a Hall Pass Linky!

Do hall passes gross anyone else out?! I can't stand the thought of all the germs and snot and gunk on them... *shudder. Just like my Smart Board grosses me out... I don't go a day without cleaning the sucker! You can see the smudges of who knows what on that puppy! 

This Hall Pass is all about fun, though! Every teacher needs a break, right?!

Product-

 My favorite product of mine is my Kindergarten Comprehension packs. My kids LOVE these and their fluency and comprehension has improved from using them on a regular basis! Plus, it is a super easy assessment!

 Area-

My teacher table is my favorite place to be! I love teaching mini lessons, doing guided reading with my kids, and getting to work with them on a one-on-one basis! Love this area of my room (I need to take some new pictures, geesh!)

Signal-

I LOVE Whole Brain Teaching. I don't do it completely, but I use lots of bits and pieces of it! I looooove me some "Claaaaassssss. Oh classssss" "Yessssss. Oh yessssssss" "Hands and Eyes!" When my kids show me hands and eyes they have to put their hands on their head. This discourages all those little wandering hands when I'm giving directions. Those scissors (crayons/glue/play doh/whatever). are. just. too. tempting. Mrs. Alderson!!

Sanity-

I LOVE reading and taking baths! Just ask the hubs! Long day at work= Mommy gets some time in the tub with a book. Who doesn't love a good book?
 

So head on over to Reagan's blog and check out everyone else's Hall Passes!

  3. I have your Kindergarten Comprehension and love it!!! I love the signal you use....I use this one "Everyone listen" and the class sings "Right Now!" It sounds kind of sing-songy (if that makes sense!)
    I will link up tomorrow...too late tonight, must get to bed!

  5. I agree with Reagan, your classroom does look gigantic. When I'm at my teacher table, I feel like I am practically trapped in my little corner. ;P

  9. WOW your work table is soooooo neat and clean. I always have at least two piles of papers hanging around on my table that I have to move so I can have group time. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
