Happy Friday! I hope everyone else is staying dry because in central Florida we're getting soaked! Imagine dismissal during a monsoon...not pretty!
This week FLEW by! I'm not sure if it's because of Labor Day holiday, but I swear I blinked and it was over! Let's talk about my week for Five For Friday with Kacey!
I got this beautiful art in the mail last week from my sweet and thoughtful friend Jessica from Joy in the Journey~isn't it beautiful? It fits perfectly in my classroom! Jessica was out and saw this artwork and thought of me!!! So sweet, but even sweeter was the thoughtful note on the back! I appreciate her generosity!
I am thankful everyday for my new friends I've met in bloggy land!
We finished our Best Part of Me Bulletin Board! I love it!
After reading and using The Best Part of Me as a model, we create our own class book. I leave them up on the bulletin board until after open house, then I bind them into a class book. Each student chooses their "best part" to write about. Lots of hands were chosen this year. It's so interesting to see what students think are their best parts. This activity is such a great community builder and self esteem booster!
Our posters are up too! I love these Inspirational Posters...they add so much color and personalization to our class. Each student designed their poster to reflect their interpretation of their quote.
I got tired of buying pre-made posters and this gives my students ownership of our class.
Look at what one of my students brought our class this morning!
Love! Such a cute and creative idea! Definitely a bonus on a Friday!
So excited to have my first student graduate from their multiplication facts!
Learn more about how I motivate my students to memorize their multiplication facts tomorrow on...
Hope to see you there! Link up any idea, tip, lesson, incentive, etc. that gets your students motivated or excited!
Don't forget to grab your freebie on my Facebook page...it will be changing again soon!
Have a super weekend...it goes by quickly!
