Here are a few of my favorite finds from this week:
1. This simple idea from What the Teacher Wants is super cool! I tried it in my class this week and kids were really excited about writing on a plate. The best part of this was how it helped them visualize both addens before they added them together!
2. Just today I found this cute idea of using plastic Easter eggs to teach compound words! Right after spring break we are going to start compound words and you bet I will headed to Target after Easter to buy myself a discounted set of plastic eggs!!
3. Finally, I thought I would share a cool classroom organization pin that I found last week! I have all my bulletin board letters in big gallon zip lock bags by colors but everytime I want to use them I have to lay them all out on a table to find the right letters. This clever teacher uses a binder with CD holders to organize the letters! I'm totally doing this, maybe when I go to Target for the eggs I will get a few CD holder pages. This is a perfect project for one of my awesome parent volunteers!
