Summer Planning (and dreaming!)

Hadar, Teri, and April are having such a cool linky party--My Summer Bucket List!! There's nothing I love more than dreaming of those long, hot, lazy days where I can plan and create to my heart's content! I have a bit of time 'til I get there (28 days for the students, 29 for the teachers) but that's ok, it's fun to dream!

Usually, I get carried away with classroom design, but I'm going to try and curb that a tiny bit this summer. I'd like to keep things balanced, so here's the plan...

State Symbols graphic organizer

Hey everyone! This is just a quick little share for those who may be working on state projects.

So, even though my class is comprised of ELL newcomers, I follow the grade level curriculum of our 4th and 5th grade neighbors as closely as I can. And, right now, it's state-project-season! 4th graders are working on a state project focusing on a famous person or area of our state, while 5th graders are resesarching any of the other 50 states for their project.

All projects have a visual piece (a trifold board), as well as written pieces (in the form of a report or two).

The only problem? It kind of works out to be three different projects in one class...

Tutorial: Cute Thumbnail Galleries!

I hope that doesn't sound too flaky! But I know I'm not the only one who likes things to look a certain way, so I wanted to share something new I learned today...

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Hello friends! I want to wish each and every one of you a very happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!

This year, I am particularly grateful for all that I have learned from you within this blogging community. I feel that I am a stronger teacher today, thanks to your constant inspiration, advice, and sharing of ideas.

Every time I look around my classroom or at the lessons I am preparing, I see parts of everything I have learned from all of you--and for that I am deeply thankful.

As a small way of showing my gratitude, I am having a sale at my Teachers Notebook Shop--all items are 40% off this week.

But there is some way more exciting news than that!! Teachers Notebook is having a Teacher Appreciation Sweepstakes where 7 different winners can win $100 worth of materials from any of your favorite shops on TN!! Plus, a ton of shops are running sales on Teachers Notebook right at this moment--click on the link above to check it out!

And thank you once again...may you all have a wonderful week of well-deserved appreciation! :)
