Well hello there! It’s Sunday. The sun is shining. A nap is in my *very* near future. I’ve got my pup laying at my feet. My daughter is reading aloud. Church was amazing and convicting this morning. Life is good!
Last week we had our 2nd Grade Open House and Music Program on Tuesday night. I’ve been gathering student work for what seems like months now. I was happy to get rid of mounds of student work, plus it’s always to fun to watch kids show off their hard work to their parents! When I taught first grade we would do more of a theme night… and our work would all revolve around one topic. Since moving to 2nd, I’ve done more of a mod-podge of concepts and skills. I’m going to take you on a little tour of every.single.thing we had up around our room. Also, most of these things I have blogged about before, so rather than explaining everything again, I will just give you links to blog posts with lots of details! AND, if I don’t know where something is from it’s because my teaching partner did lots of the cute stuff in her class 🙂
Cabinets: I printed pictures from throughout the year and hot-glued them to the front of my cabinet doors 🙂 They look so sweet under the welcome banner! This idea came from an ah-ha moment I had at the Ron Clark Academy! Put pictures of the kids up in the classroom/school and they will be excited about walking in the doors!
Desks: Biography bottle projects (done in Spanish class), Salt-Dough Landforms (done in Spanish class), Book Report booklets, and we made a big envelope to house all other work!
