Hey everyone! I am here with a Five for Friday BUT it's Saturday so I am calling it Five for Fraturday! One of the BIG things I have going on is that I have winners to announce for my giveaways so be sure to scroll down to find out who won!
Working away in the classroom these days! I was in 6 days! And people say teachers have such a long summer break! I was back in after 6 weeks to set up (and that is after going in the day after school ended to clean and pack up!)
The big thing I was doing was painting a really ugly cabinet. Here is an in process image on the left matched with a close up of the finished project. Yay! Much better!
Also I really LOVE opening new crayons, colored pencils, pencils, etc. There is just something about new, sharpened school supplies!
I organize my crayons by color. It takes a bit to set up at first but then I never have to deal with: "I can't find a purple"- plus the kids just take the colors they need to their desk and not an entire container!
Also I set up my clock - remember Care Bears? LOL! This is for our bathroom sign out sheet. I really feel (with occasional help) kids at the beginning of second grade should be able to figure out the hour on the clock on the wall but at the beginning of the year I let them see the minutes. Later in the year I take away the first minutes digit (covered with a bunch of stickies taped down) and at the end of the year I unplug the clock!
I am LOVING this Blair Turner Paper notepad! Its been so helpful and its fun!
Also this is just great! No cones! (unless its an ice cream cone!)
And have you seen and tasted these grapes? They really do taste like cotton candy! It's nuts!!
And I saw this a few weeks ago and wanted to share it here - thanks so much to Mel from From the Pond - she is a talented, creative teacher blogger and I love how this celebrates teachers supporting each other!
