Sunday Safari- Father's Day Edition - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

Sunday Safari- Father's Day Edition

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:

Now- I can't write a post on Father's Day without thanking my husband for being an amazing father...

You make us laugh...

You set a wonderful example for our children (and me!)...

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!
