There are tons of ideas out there for celebrating the 100th day of school! Here’s one I recently heard about from a cousin. Her daughter’s school encouraged kids to dress up like they were 100 years old! How awesome is that?!
Have any other awesome 100 days of school activities you love? Share them in the comments below! Thanks!
As this year comes to a close, I’m reflecting on the growth of my blog for this year. I’m beaming with pride as I announce that I hit 1 million views this year! I’ve had a blast sharing ideas and learning more about the *addicting* world of blogging! Thank you to everyone who has read, shared, commented and supported my blog!
It’s never too early to start thinking about seasonal crafts for the classroom, no matter what time of year! Prepare for Thanksgiving with our true-to-life sized R51080 Project Leaves in a variety of colors and shapes. Use the Project Leaves to create the tail feathers and simple construction paper cutouts to make the turkey head and body.
I’ve been helping a friend plan for her first year teaching 6th grade. Here’s a letter we came up with to give to parents at the beginning of the year. We wanted to find a way to let parents/guardians help the class even if they can’t commit to a once a week in-class time. Here’s a draft of our letter. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Parent Volunteer Are Awesome!
