|You can't even see the other pile of junk from this view.|
On top of everything else, the laminator was out of laminating film, so I couldn't even get my bulletin boards done. SCREAM! Discouraged, and loving my cutie pie, I haven't been back in. This is what I've been up to:
Sidewalk chalk paint!
I originally saw this on pinterest, but it was first posted on pinkandgreenmama.blogspot.com. If you haven't visited this blog yet, you really should! The author is a former art teacher, now stay-at-home-mom, and she has some really great art ideas and activities for kids!
We also visited a local park today that has a spray ground. It's fairly new, and never crowded! It's always a nice change from the pool.
It hasn't been all fun and games around here, though. During naptime today, I created my classroom jobs bulletin board. It's posted in my Teacher's Notebook store. Here is a preview:
I plan to laminate each card and write the names of the job holder with dry erase marker. There are 21 job cards, but it is designed for 30 students to have a job.
I will be posting my job descriptions and applications as a freebie as soon as I get them finished.
Back to reality tomorrow. My Principal called and wants me to attend a technology meeting. Our district is finally changing over to Progress Book this year. This has been in the works for a long time, and I couldn't be happier. Since I have to go in for the meeting, I'm going to work in my classroom. I'm hoping I'll get enough done that I can enjoy the rest of the week before starting back on Monday.
What else are you doing besides working in your classrooms?
