Busy, busy, busy…that doesn’t even begin to describe what I have been up to. I finally decided that I’m going to be using blues, greens, and purples in the classroom this year. Now that I know that, I have started working on some classroom projects. I had my classroom library labels created, then I realized that I made a measurement mistake and need to go back and fix every single one. Whoops! I guess that’s why they say measure twice, cut once 🙂
I’m sure you’ve seen this idea all over Pinterest and other blogs. I covered a container with Happy Birthday wrapping paper. Then I started creating the clipart to go on the birthday balloons. I made them in purple, green, and blue which will go with my classroom color scheme. I just need to get the crazy straws, make the balloon cutouts with my Cricut, and attach the birthday clipart. Do you think the pattern on the wrapping paper is too busy or do you think it will be okay?
Clipboard – Attempt # 1
Again, another Pinterest project. This was my first attempt at using Mod Podge, too. There are a few spots I goofed on, but it was definitely a learning experience I will try again 🙂
I have blogged about this several times now. Here is my (almost) finished product. It just needs to be laminated so I can hang it in my classroom. I changed the language on the chart to match my own teaching style and language I use with students. I’m happy to share my files for the chart, family letter, and other notes if you are interested.
Just finished up a book companion for Amazing Animal Journeys, a Level 3 National Geographic Kids text. This book follows the migration of zebras, red crabs, and walruses. If you already own the bundle, be sure to grab this latest addition.
I love this book recommendation table from Learning on Leighton Lane! ❤️❤️❤️I love this book recommendation table by @learningonleightonlane!!! She painted a thrift store find with chalkboard paint and used chalk markers to do the writing. ♥️ Her class “librarians” choose books for the table and kids may take and read any book they find there! Such a perfect way to celebrate reading!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Books have been a constant in my life since I was a young reader. I'm so glad that it's my turn to share my love of books with others. ❤️❤️❤️Books have meant so much to me my entire life. I love how books can change our perspective or strengthen our beliefs. I love how you can pass joy by sharing a book you love with someone. I love how more recently, educators and publishing house are realizing the importance and significance of representation in children’s books. I’d like to point out however, that BIPOC folx and LGBT+ folx and differently abled folx have been begging for representation for....ever. In a well know idea from Rudine Sims Bishop, books should be mirrors and windows for our students. I love this graphic by @grantdraws What have books been for you? #thetututeacher #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers ... See MoreSee Less
