The sun is setting...

Well it's that time of year...

I figured I started with a garden bulliten board, it's only right to end with one. 

The sun is finally setting on this exsausting, long, exciting, and memory filled year, but more about that later. It was quick and easy to make. Just a little bit of paint, 25 first grade hands and a stapler. ¡Viola!

Bathroom Bugs

I am not a fan of bathroom passes...mainly because they get lost and torn and brought back soaking wet. My new system is the bathroom bug. The kiddos just slip them on their desk when they leave. That way I can see who is not there and automatically know they are in the bathroom!

Friendly Letter Anchor

I have been trying to boost my creativity in the anchor chart category. The students and I have started diving into letter writing this week. To help the remember the parts we came up with body parts to help us remember! From there we created an anchor chart to hang up for a friendly reminder. What do you think?

My first graders are dynamite in creativity. This week we decided to talk about snowmen and how other states have snow! Arizona kinda lacks in the snow department. The students were able to discover that cool colors remind them of being that is where we started!

After layering cool colors in the background the students created their snowmen. It was very neat to see the colors blend together!

While those were drying, we created descriptions of our snowmen. I let the students write whatever they felt like. I was amazed at how descriptively some of them wrote!

Easy peasy...glue the paper down and viola!

100th day activities

We did two different activities for our 100th day! The first was "100 years from now" writing prompt. The kids were so creative! They thought of how they would look and what they would be doing.

Our second activity was taking the number 100 and transforming it into a different picture. The kids needed some help on this one, but overall they did a fantastic job being creative once again!
