Watch out for the aliens....

Now that the school year is finally over, I am very hopeful that I can get back to a normal blogging schedule. This summer, I am challenging myself to get back on the fitness wagon and re-lose the 40lbs that I've packed back on over the past three years. Nothing is worse than realizing you can't wear any of your summer clothes. I'm just going to chalk this up to a wonderful lesson in getting my priorities back in order.


So to kick off the weight loss challenge, I decided to make a quick review activity for my Colorful Semantics groups. The alien power cards review what each color represents. Students can use these to help them sort the picture cards on the sorting mats as well as when they write sentences.

  1. Thanks! This looks great! I can't wait to use it (when I'm back a school...so I guess I can wait since I don't want to wish my summer away)!

    1. You're welcome! I completely agree with you on not wanting to wish summer away. It goes by too quickly as is.

    1. Oh wow! I'm not brave enough to try 30 day shred. I'm just walking and calorie counting.
