Each Tuesday, teachers from around the world will be posting a picture from their day with #teachertalktuesday.
Here is the picture I am sharing this week.
This is an "I Can Be Tweet" Craftivity. I used it around Earth day and the kids wrote about how they can be "tweet" to the Earth. However, this comes with 2 other writing prompts. There is an "I Can Be Tweet" writing prompt which could be used around Valentine's Day, and there is a blank lined writing template. Check it out here.
1. Our class celebrated Earth day this week by cleaning up the playground, planting flowers, hanging up bird feeders, and participating in many fun activities. You can read about them below. Here is a look at one of our Earth day craftivities:
The kids wrote about how they can be "tweet" to the earth. Jordan wrote that he would pick up trash. I will add this craftivitiy to my store within the next couple of days.
2. Wedding Plans:
The countdown is on...57 more days until I become Mrs. Black! My mom has not been able to find a dress yet, so I am going shopping with her tomorrow. Hopefully we will find something! We are also going to work on buying gifts for the wedding party. Should be fun!
3. Fun Writing Paper
I created writing paper with lines and a drawing box. This paper comes in 12 different styles. When it is writing time, I pass out different styles of the paper. The kids think it is fun to see paper they will get. You can see the paper here.
4. Relay for Life
Our school has been raising money that will go to help find a cure for cancer. As part of the fundraiser, students could bring $1 to buy a balloon to be released in honor/memory of a loved one. The whole school came together and here is a picture of the balloon release. The kids really enjoyed it!
5. May Homework
Just 27 more days in this school year! This will be our last homework calendar of the year. You can find it here.
And these 2 pictures are from our Earth Day fun. The first picture is of seed art that the kids made in Mrs. Durham's class, and the second picture is of an Earth that the kids marble painted in Mrs. Miles' class.
I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share 5 highlights from my week.
1. I kicked off Spring break with a party! My little cousin turned 1! She was born last year on Easter, so she had a bunny themed birthday party.
The lady who made her cake did an awesome job!
The cake was cute as a button and also delicious!
Look how cute her individual cake turned out.
Here's a look at Ava as she is starting to eat the cake.
She really enjoyed the cake...
and got upset when her mom tried to take it away
so, of course her dad let her have it back!
And this is what's left of the cake!!!
This is the last picture I'll show you of Ava, but I had to show it. Everyone bought her the cutest gifts ever, and I bought her a practical gift....diapers....BUT, she LOVED them! She played with them the whole time! :)
2. Over Spring break I made progress on the wedding! I bought a veil, jewelry, and even a few gifts for those that are helping me with the wedding.
3. Even though I'm officially off work, I am still working. Here is a look at one of the things I made while on break. It is a ladybug craftivity in which the kids make a cute ladybug while also finding the missing number that will make 10. Click here to see more about the craft
4. I also created a book that can be made out of a file folder. Here's a look:
This is the cover. The kids can color the words and then write their name at the bottom.
This page goes on the inside of the file folder.
They trace the definition of oviparous and then sort these pictures
by gluing them to the oviparous or not oviparous side.
This page also goes on the inside of the book.
The kids practice labeling the shell, yolk and egg white.
They can color the yolk yellow.
For the back cover, the kids sequence the life cycle of a frog.
These are the pictures they must cut and then glue in order.
