We have celebrated three birthdays this school year. When it is your birthday, during morning work, everyone colors a page just for you. The child celebrating the birthday gets to color the front cover. Simply collect all the pages to make a class birthday book. I adapted this cute idea from Christina Bainbridge.
You also get to take home one of these cute birthday balloons from What the Teacher Wants.
This year our school district is implementing a new program called Literacy By 3. Look at our brand new leveled library! So excited about this. All of the colorful bins are from Big Lots.
Every year I love to include these three adorable crafts by Julie Lee!! So precious. (Chester the raccoon, No David, Miss Viola Swamp)
This is my IB board to display the current unit of inquiry and central idea we are working on. You can get a set of the key concepts here. Learner Profiles here. Transdisciplinary themes here.
We have been learning all about what a scientist is. The pieces for this anchor chart are from Chalk Talk.
This is currently our bulletin board. I am loving the flamingo trend right now.
I found this idea on pinterest and started implementing it after our number talks.
While learning about circles we made pancakes!! We graphed blueberries or chocolate chips. Then we made chocolate chip pancakes.
While cooking they completed this little how to.
We spent some time learning our names!
