Summer time... and the living is easy!

Hi all!

I know it has been a while, but honestly I have been enjoying my break. The Mr. still has one more week of school (poor him) so I have been relaxing, watching TV...Hatfields and McCoys!!! and hitting some things from my bucket list :)

Here's my tool box! I love it and it will be great in my new room!

This fabric will eventually be my classroom banner...

I worked on this project for my classroom too! I think it will be cute hanging by my desk. A good friend at my old school gave it to me as a parting gift, and I spiced it up with some ribbon...

I also had a chance to work on a unit I have been trying to finish ALL YEAR! My I Love America unit is finally finished! It is jam packed with graphic organizers, my favorite group project and a few centers for just $4! You can pick it up at my TPT store.

all this and SO much more :)
If you want one for free... leave a comment about your favorite group project you do during the school year! I'll pick a winner on Wednesday night!

Also... thinking ahead for next year I discovered this post at First Grader at Last on her behavior catalog!!! Why did I not think of this!?! I loathe the treasure box and this is my ticket out of it... hooray... Now I just have to make one-- a.k.a buy some super cute clip art :) Ill post pics when it's finished!

ok.. that's it for now. Don't forget to leave your comment!

See you soon

My favorite group project with the students has to be all the reindeer craft project. I love it and the kids enjoy it. Plus, it looks so festive hanging for the ceiling!

I love your projects! They came out adorable!! My favorite group project is our Christmas play that we perform for our parents of "The Grinch". It came out so good last year! I was very proud of my students. :)

Oo I love the polka dot fabric!! Your I Love America unit looks great and I could definitely use it in my class! My favorite group project this year was "All About My State" where the students created their own books on Rhode Island.

My favorite project was probably our planting unit! We are a new school so all of our school beautification came from seeds that the students planted in the room and transplated in flowerbeds outside :)

My favorite group project this year was done through our guidance class. The students created a group banner about all the different ways our classroom/ class was a peace-able place/ peacemakers. It was wonderful seeing them work together.
