Winter Linky Party

Student Made Classroom Decor

I am a new teacher (second year), so I feel as though I do not have a lot of decor for my classroom. This can be overwhelming in the beginning to feel as though I have a lot of expenses for my classroom. As a parent, my favorite gifts are handmade gifts from my children. As a teacher, I discovered that some of my favorite items for classroom decor are handmade from students.

I try to come up with seasonal craft activities that incorporate literacy or math skills, and then I use those items to bring cheer to the room. We have been working on reviewing the parts of speech this week, so students made these cute snowmen with verbs and adverbs (some did nouns and adjectives). Then we hung them in the window for festive decor throughout the month.

Great product!

I recently obtained these Hand-up Answer Boards from . I have individual white boards for my students (which we use all the time for math), but I find that the size encourages them to doodle. These little hands are great. They are double-sided (blue/red), which I loved for yes/no responses. I actually used them for odd/even number review. It would be nice if they were a bit thicker (as the students enjoyed waving them around), but I think this is a great product. Students could comfortably write a 4-5 digit number (or 4-5 letter word) and they didn't have all the extra space that the big white boards have. They are a big hit with my second graders.
Smilemakers has a huge selection of educational products. I have been letting all of my teacher friends know about this site. I already have my eye on quite a few products for my classroom.

Teacher Tips

There are some tips/tricks that I found helpful, and I wanted to share....

1. FREE BINS. The lids from boxes of copy machine paper can make great bins, and they are FREE. My classroom had table this year (instead of desks), which made storage solutions a must. I used one lid on each table for unfinished work. I used another lid for seat work packets. It was easier to put bins on each table, so that students only had to sort through 4-6 papers instead of 16-18 with a whole class bin.

2.  SEAT WORK. I like to start my day off with morning seat work (those 5-10 minutes help me greet students and complete attendance ). Each day, student complete a short worksheet with either the grammar concept we are learning, spelling rule, or sight words. I also have math seat work that the students complete after recess. It helps them transition. Each day, I write a number on the board. Students complete the activities on their seat work sheet according to the day of the week. This helps to review basic concepts that need constant practice, like place value, even and odd numbers, tallies, number sentences, fact families, multiples of 10, spelling numbers, etc...

3. PAGE PROTECTORS. Page protectors are my best friend. I am not a fan of killing trees by wasting paper. Instead, I use page protectors to turn any worksheet into a reusable resource. I especially find them useful in math. I have math bins for when students finish work. My math bins include playing cards, dominoes, shapes, time, money, measurement, and partner games. I fill each of those bins with activities for students to practice math concepts. I use page protectors, to that students can use a dry erase marker, and then wipe it off when they are done.

End of the year

My first year of teaching is coming to a close in a couple of weeks. As I look back on this year, I am amazed at how much I have changed. I have learned so much and each day gained more and more confidence in my abilities. I don't want the school year to end, because I want to continue to learn and grow.
I was hired on in December to replace a teacher who was leaving, so my job was only for one school year. I won't know if I have a job next year until August (depends on number of students enrolled). I am keeping my fingers crossed and praying that it all works out. I absolutely love teaching. I have a passion for it, and I think I did a pretty good job this year. I hope to continue growing and learning over the summer (and possibly starting my masters).

Cute Spring Bulletin Board Idea

I used these Spring Word Families Flowers to create a cute Spring Bulletin Board! Some of the flowers had word families printed, and I also included blank flowers to challenge some of my more advanced learners. Students worked in groups of 3. First they made a list of all the words they could think of in their word family, and then they copied the words into the flowers. Great way to bring some Spring cheer into the room.
