With NY's crazy winter weather I've managed to squeeze in a little time to get cozy and create this week. Here's what I've made:
1. Picture Perfect Photo Table
My hubby gave me a new digital camera for Christmas. In hopes to update my blog with fabulous photos I decided to put together a little photo table in my home office. Now when I take photos to share with you they can have a clean white background.
My photos are already looking a little more professional!
2. Survival Kit for Teachers
Although teaching has stolen my heart and soul, the winter is a crazy time of year. Lesson plans, data, observations, meetings, new common core standards, new teacher evaluation systems, state tests looming over our heads.....ugh. The list goes on and on.
So, in order to relieve some stress, I created little survival kits for my fourth grade teacher buddies..
I found these cute containers at the Dollar Tree. Inside I put little notepads, gel pens, hand sanitizer, heart shaped chocolates, hot chocolate and a candle.
You can snag the template for my survival kit here!
Last but not least, my pride and joy...my new Winter Poetry pack. I plan to start our poetry unit at the end of this week!
Each poem includes a teacher direction sheet, sample poem, rough draft worksheet, and a final copy sheet for students.
There are also 2 versions of a Winter Poetry Book cover. Simply combine the final copy pages together in a book or display them on bulletin boards or in a hallway display.
I'll be sure to post some pictures of students' final products in the upcoming weeks!
