New schedule cards


I have decided to change my theme for next year to Dr. Seuss so I am in the process of switching. Here is an example of my schedule cards on Teachers Pay Teachers.

Math Wall Vocabulary Cards

 I just added about 52 word wall cards to Teachers Pay Teachers. I wanted the kids to be able to see them from a distance. They coincide with the new common core.

Onomatopoeia

 I just added these on Tpt.

Character/Setting Triaramas

 These Triaramas were made to illustrate Main Character and Setting:
 This one is Julius, the Baby of the World, by Kevin Henkes
 Oh the Places You'll Go, by Dr. Seuss
 Enemy Pie, by Derek Munson
 Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? By Dr. Seuss
 Do Stars have Points?

Fish pictures

 We made these fish pictures to use to decorate for our fish program! First we did the backgrounds with sharpie and watercolors. The kids looked in Marine books to get ideas. Then we did the outline of our favorite marine creature and filled it with designs we liked...aren't they great?!!

art


Here is a picture of an art project we made last week. My friend Kevin Howse gave me the idea. You have everyone in your class paint a watercolor picture. Then you cut it in 1/2 inch strips. Each child gives a strip to everyone else in the class and then they weave it. They are so colorful. The idea is to create something together as a team that would not be as neat by yourself.
