My week started off with an amazing PD session, we made interactive math notebooks!! They kept us BUSY cutting, gluing, taping, cutting, laminating, stapling, and creating ... ALL DAY!!!
I can't wait to share some of the amazingness of this with you all....but I have decided that it will be a slow sharing process. I'm going to share it as I create mine with my class & then attach what I can as freebies to all of you!
I was able to get into my classroom this week, too!! I feel like I was able to get a lot accomplished.... however, I still have SO. MUCH. MORE. to do!!
Fun Fact: You can get twin flat sheets at Wal-Mart for $4 that work great for bulletin boards!!We have massive back wall bulletin boards as you can see & the flat sheet side ways fits it PERFECTLY!!! I mean when you think about the cost of fabric by the yard... You save TONS!!!
If you've never used hand signals, you're missing out!! Last year I made signs for hand signals & refusing to look back on the idea!! They worked amazing & because I decided to change things around a bit, I created new ones this year!! You can grab them FREE as a Facebook Fan for a limited time!! :)
One of my baby brothers played in the Super Series World Series this week... which means we watched A LOT of baseball!!!! They did great & even were able to play one of their final games at the Dell Diamond!!
I also created & uploaded .... probably OVER a week ago..... one of my newest units, Snapshots Through the Year! It is probably one of the things I am most excited about doing with my kids this year!! I just now seem to be getting around to sharing about it!!
The idea behind this unit was to have a place for students, teacher, and parents to be able to see where they started the year and ended the year. Students can see their progress with writing, handwriting, and their artistic abilities over the course of the year by using this. While I have no intention of grading this, I think it is going to end up being a great little memory book for students & their parents!!
There are monthly pages with a special back to school and summer version. With each month there is a polaroid style frame for students to share something special that month, these things range from their favorite new piece of school supplies to their best friend. Each month is different & requires different things for students to write about and share.
You can get this unit in my TPT store by clicking here, it is on Sale until Wednesday!
I hope this wasn't too scrambled up for you!! ;) Happy Sunday!
