I know many of you have recently wrapped up the school year and so I hope you are enjoying the start of summer! I CAN'T. STOP. thinking about school. I am SOOO excited about setting up my classroom and preparing for my second graders.
In addition to reading some great books (the ones I named in my previous post) as well as Guided Reading: Making It Work by Mary Browning Schulman and Carleen DaCruz Payne (excellent text written by two teachers), I have been feeling crafty. Here are the projects I have completed:
|Tissue Paper Wreath Inspired by School Girl Style. I have a vision for this hanging in the hallway next to my classroom door as a easy way for my students to spot our classroom.|
|Flag Garland (school colors): made from scrapbook paper and card stock, strung together with ribbon and glue. I have a vision of this hanging from the ceiling inspired by a post from the Clutter-Free Classroom.|
|Mini Flag Garland: made from scraps of above garland. I envision this on a bulletin board.|
|Dear Student Poster (made with Sharpies) Inspired by Better After and Tupelo Honey.|
|Pete the Cat!!!!! I made him out of colored copy paper. I have a vision for this on my classroom door with Pete's motto: "It's all good."|
