Today marks 2 years of this little blog. 2 whole years... It has been an amazing experience and I thank you.
In the classroom today I was still prepping things for Open House. Thursday is quickly approaching. Here are some more bulletin boards.
I had to take down my math and writing boards to fit all these projects. The kids have their poetry folders (opened) up, next to their bowl of ice cream, and their picture from the beginning of the year. The poetry folder has an I Am Poem, a Color Poem, an Acrostic with their name, and one more that I can't quite remember at the moment...
Their bowls of ice cream have 6 scoops of ice cream of different units that they thought were challenging this year. I asked them to choose units that they are proud of, that they didn't give up, and that they considered "fun" overall. They were able to decorate their scoops of ice cream, and glued it onto the paper 1 scoop on top, 2 in the middle, 3 on the bottom. When done, they then took the bottom of the paper and cut out 2 triangles to make a bowl, and then cut out their scoops so they couldn't see the construction paper around. I love how it turned out. :)
The kids finished up their Bubblegum books last week too, and now have their pictures with them blowing a bubble on front. Under their books are their braille names. These books are around the classroom
Not everything has been prepping for the walls - we also made our CA poppies last week out of Model Magic. I've done this project for many years, and Model Magic is the only clay that doesn't crumble and fall apart. This year I was bummed that the store was out of white, but the orange kind that I picked up has been perfect - no need to paint! These will be on their desks that night.
I'm sure you can relate - it's been a crazy couple of weeks with the end of the school year quickly approaching. I'm sorry that life has gotten nuts and I'm not able to blog as much at the moment. Thanks again for 2 wonderful years!
