New Month means new themes, crafts and goodies! I am IN LOVE with Pinterest! I don't know how teachers taught before it was invented. There are so many fun seasonal ideas that I find on Pinterest that I use in my classroom. Please follow my March Pinterest board to see all the goodies I've found all over the internet. I hope you can use some of my finding's in your classroom too! Be sure to follow because I add to the board all year long- and you might find some goodies for next year too!1
Schedules Schedules Scheudles. Yes- they are important. and YES they are a headache. I can't live with them, I cannot live without them. It's kind of one of those love/hate relationships wouldn't you say?
Be together. Not the Same
When I watched this I instantly thought about my students. They are challenged every day in every way possible to "be the same" or "be normal" and most often "just blend in." I fight for them to not feel pressured to be the same. And I just love this commercial as it simply states
Be TOGETHER. Not the SAME
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! I am SUPER excited to be today's blogger giving away a FABULOUS freebie! Wohoooo! 28 of us joined forces to bring you a month's worth of sweet treats! Be sure to check out the calendar at the bottom to see who else is joining in the fun
Matching is SUCH an important skill for my lower group to master. It takes a lot of practice to master matching. I have found that some of my students will memorize file folders and know where pieces go without actually looking. For others- it's about motivation! Because of this- I created a bundled product of 22 matching file folders!
It's important to teach students the history behind the holidays we celebrate. For us- we got TWO days off to celebrate President's day! I introduced the the holiday with a social story to teach them. We of course had to make some crafts!
What is President's Day?
Many student's would argue that it's a day that we get to sleep in, hang out with friends and and enjoy NO school. It's the reality of the situation and it's sad that our kids don't understand they importance behind such a special day.
