Can you believe it's already August? This time next week I'll be working in my classroom and getting it ready for all my little Happy Campers! I can hardly wait!
I've been hard at work prepping some things for Meet the Teacher night at my school. Every teacher always has a Wish List for parents to choose an item from and bring on the first day of school. For me, this is a great opportunity to ask for school supply items, since I do not get supplies from my students like the classroom teachers do. In the past, I displayed my items on my door using post-it notes, where parents could easily grab a post-it off the door. But this year I wanted to be more creative.
I decided to bring in my classroom theme with my wish list and I made S'MORES out of craft foam, felt, and jumbo cotton balls!
I then made a tag that I will be stapling to the S'MORES, this is where my wish list item is written.
They turned out super cute and I'm hoping they'll be a big hit!
Shifting gears now to my activity for the week! I'm not the only one who loves testing out activities for my kiddos. :)
Kato was a great helper while I was testing out this game Monday night! Sophie, however, was fast asleep.
This game uses the same 16 paper plates I used last week. All you need is index cards and these awesome little foam dart shooters I got from Target's party aisle (they come in a bag of 6!).
We focused on sentence editing while playing this game, but you can modify it to fit the needs of your kiddos. On my index cards, I wrote a sentence with up to 3 capitalization and/or punctuation errors and noted how many mistakes there were on the bottom of the card. On the back of each card, I wrote numbers 10-150, and 200 to serve as the points. Next, you set the plates up like a target on a flat surface with each card inside:
I hope you are able to use this activity with your kiddos! Let me know if you have any specific skills you are working on, I would love to help you create an activity for it!
Have an awesome week!
