On Monday we celebrated Dr. Seuss and his birthday (which was March 2). I simply LOVE Dr. Seuss books and my Firsties do to. Dr. Seuss was a true believer in people believing in themselves and being happy with who they are. I often talk to my kiddos about how important it is to be happy with who they are and not trying to be someone else. I found this awesome idea and I knew I had to do it. So each of my kiddos wrote why they were who they were. Here's my example, "I am who I am because I get to teach some of the smartest Firsties in the whole world." This was a huge success. It built confidence, made them feel good, and it made our classroom even cuter. They were a hit tonight.
So as I was stalking Pinterest I saw this cuteness and it was a FREEBIE!!!!!!!!!!! Booyah!!!! I love when this happens. This scavenger hunt template was created by Teacher Chick from 3 Teacher Chicks. I was so excited because it was editable and it had Melonheadz graphics! #winning I wrote a note to each of my Firsties letting them know that I was happy they came to Open House. They also earned 5 Bulldog Bucks if they came as well. Nothing wrong with a little motivation right? = )
So I brought this idea to my team and they all said, "YES!" Each Firstie received a medium size pizza box and inside we put lots of great work. One of my team mates thought of this awesome slogan. A Slice of My Day! Super Cute! Another hit tonight.
This is another display I put up. All week we've been learning about Texas and we did the cutest boot activity. The title says, "These Boots Were Made For Learning. "
Here's a close up of this cuteness. Not sure where this came from, but if you know please comment to me and let me know. I would love to give credit where credit is due. = )
My last photo for tonight. I'm on team delirious right now. This is how I had each table tonight. It was a big success! Spring break I'm so ready for you. Have a blessed evening love bugs.
