It was a crazy hectic blur of a week!
And I'm joining Doodle Bugs Teaching and her Five for Friday Linky Party...Link UP!
Five for Friday is FiVE RanDoM things about your week!
TWO~Thrift Shop-Macklemore...I CAN NOT get this song out of my head! I had the students singing it all week. I'm gonna pop some tags, only got twenty dollars in my pocket...
THREE~ Oh The Places...I got the idea off of Pinterest...Read the Dr. Seuss story to kids, chatted a bit about it...Took the kids' pictures in hallway...had them write on 3 balloons...A Dream, A Hope, and A Wish... Turned out ADORABLE...Here's a peek!
Free Balloons from Graphics From the Pond... http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Balloons-FREE-Clipart-Graphics-Set-for-Teaching-Resources
FOUR~ Shamrock Art...I cut out shamrocks with the Ellison Die Cut and have the kids trace several shamrocks on white construction paper. They are only allowed to use greens and yellows to design and decorate their shamrocks. They must use crayon, colored pencils, and markers (different media). When they are finished, they outline the shamrocks in black to make them pop.
My sample...(I totally forgot to take a pic of the kids' finished products hanging in the hall).
FIVE~Harriet Tubman ... Little Kid had to read a Biography for her 3rd grade and make a puppet! She read about Harriet Tubman. I cut up one of my old socks, her big sis sewed some of the dress and head for her, she attached everything and put it all together...and WAH LA!
Looks just like the photo we went off of!
ALSO... Big Kid earned Student of the Month for all of 8th Grade...had to give an acceptance speech at the Board of Ed meeting....SO PROUD!
Mid Kid was in the newspaper and earned recognition for her help with United Way...SO PROUD!
Little Kid came home with an award for her Great Character in school this week...SO PROUD!
