Once again I am late to the Five for Friday party. It is amazing how exhausting the first week of school is. Getting back into the swing of things is an adjustment!
1. New Wreath! Isn't is BEAUTIFUL!?!?!?! My dear friend, and a parent of mine this year, had this gorgeous wreath made for my classroom door. Seriously, the picture does not do it justice. It is large and super colorful! I LOVE IT!!
2. Interactive Notebooks. This was our first week back in school and I have already started my students on interactive notebooks. So far they seem to love them. The best part...this group is awesome at following directions! Can I get an Amen!!!
3. SLANT BOX! I signed up to participate in Lessons with Coffee's August SLANT Box. I recieved my box this week from Karyn over at A is for Apple B is for Blog. She did a great job finding some of my favorite things! I love arts and crafts and she sent me some cute things to use with my boys, who by the way have been bugging me for the Crayola dry erase color pencils. She made me a cute post-it-note holder, which happens to match my classroom beautifully! A handmade braclet in our school colors, gold and green.
4. First Grader! I cannot believe my oldest is in FIRST GRADE! Where does the time go!?!
5. Vinyl! My son's first grade classroom theme is dinosaurs. I decorated the handsanitizer bottle that was on his supply list to match his class' theme.
6. School Wide Monster Math. Our school Math vertical team has adopted my Monster Math Spiral Review for the entire school! I am excited that they saw how effective it was and decided to adopt it for every grade level. It is also a great compliment :)
Two of my INCREDIBLE best blogging buddies are hosting an awesome giveaway and blog hop tomorrow....be sure to stop by and check it out!
