Linky Party, Word Work, Puppy Update, and Blizzard in March

Happy Wednesday. This has been such a strange week.  We are in the midst of MAP testing, Spring Break is next week, and there is a blizzard in the Northwest.  I thought for a minute, here in Ohio, we might have a snow day or delay yesterday.  But the roads were all clear and it was business as usual.

In my current intervention position, I test students who need accommodations so this week is going to be a week of constant testing.  Sometimes, I really like the break in routine but other times it is just a crazy week of long days.  I'm not sure why this is the week as we have kids leaving on vacation so there are bound to be make ups.  And certainly, we don't want to assess kids right after we return from break as they will still "be on vacation". Not the best timing but we will make do!

Other than that, it's business as usual in my world.  I just added my April Magnetic Letter Move Around to my growing bundle.  So it currently includes December through April.  With several months left to go, this is still such a bargain at just $10.  It truly is one of the most versatile and easy to differentiate activities I've ever done with students in grades K-3. Kindergarten students can work on the most basic sight words, first graders can work on sight words and simple CVC words while changing the beginnings, middles and ends, second and third graders can start to build bigger words and add prefixes or suffixes...you get the idea. And the best part is that they will be consumed with this activity and they will work on it for an extended time period. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see a picture of one of my students working on this activity.

Instagram is hands down my favorite social media site so if you aren't following me there, please stop by and check out my feed.  I snap pics throughout the school day and you can see exactly what my students (K-2) are working on in the Intervention Room and where the inspiration comes from for my latest products!  @taryns_unique_learning

Well that's it for me. Four weeks until we meet our puppy and seven until he gets to come home with us.  No name picked out yet.  I'm thinking we need to see him first!  But we are so excited and went shopping for all things puppy this past weekend. So stay tuned for damage reports!

And by the way, I'm taking next week off from blogging due to Spring Break.  So I will be back with you in two weeks.  Have a great break if you are off and see you back in two!

Until Next Time,


  1. Thanks again, Taryn :) I'm from Ohio, as well, and am enjoying our 2nd snow day this week!

    1. What part of Ohio are you from Sarah? I teach in Cincinnati but live in Dayton. No snow days for us! :(
