Hi friends! Today we are going to be visiting Laura from Over the 1st Grade Rainbow!
Laura emailed me about checking out her blog and I am so glad she did! I have found several great ideas on this new blog!
Laura had a Drive in Movie day her last day of school. What a great way to keep the kids engaged on the Eve of Summer! I just may have to try this next year. That little zebra car is calling my name :)
Laura purchased mini piggy banks for her kids to paint as an introduction to her money unit! I LOVE this idea- anything that makes the subject more memorable and personal is a great idea (not to mention a way to tie in the Arts too).
This next picture is of an eye patch she made for a special student in her class. Things like this melt my heart and bring me back to the reason that I got into teaching. I hope my students feel as loved as I am sure this little boy did :)
As with the newbies from two weeks ago, I think Laura will make a fantastic blogger as time goes!
For the more "seasoned" part of our journey, I wanted to make sure you all had heard about the many teachers participating in the Daily 5 book study over the summer.
I have never used the Daily 5 and I realllllly like the way I do Centers, but I am always willing to learn! I can't wait to see what these FABULOUS ladies have to say:
And just for you K teachers Tammy is hosting a Linky party for each chapter...WOW:
And you love us (even when you are exhausted!)...
We love you daddy!
Now I promise it won't be a whole week before you see me again!
