Hey ya'll! Jana here. I'm so excited to finally get back into the swing of things with a little Five for Friday blog post! (Yes, I do realize it's actually Saturday. That's just how I roll!)
I love this linky from Doodle Bugs because it gives a quick snapshot into our teacher lives and classrooms. So here's a quicky on my week!
This week we had our annual Open House. While I didn't snap many pics, I did get one of these super-cute "Guess Who?" self-portraits. These were definitely the thing the kids were most excited about. Their parents had fun guessing which one was their child. (We did a winter-theme with our outerwear.)
Somehow, I got suckered into being the lead for son's class art auction project for open house. (Call it Teacher-Mama Guilt.) After searching hundreds of ideas on pinterest, I came upon one that I thought was adorable. These are my almost-finished products. I still had to find the period and add Dr. Seuss' name to the end.
So I did this before I left Friday. Valentine's book display. Enough said.
Speaking of Valentine's Day, I was super excited to finish my new 2nd grade math tubs and get them all prepped today. Moving into 2nd grade this year, I've really enjoyed creating these new games. Math tub time is by far my kids' favorite part of our guided math block. Here's a peek at each game.
The Love is in the Air game has 2 options: Subtraction facts less than 10 and facts 11-18. You can find these games in my TPT store!
Finally, I am jumping on the flexible seating bandwagon! I set up my classroom on Friday, and we are ready to start on Monday. The kids will choose their own spots as they come in. For now, we have 1 regular table with chairs, 1 table with Hoki stools, 1 tall standing table, 2 floor tables, and one small round table with crate seats. I also have 8 clipboards that the kids can use on the floor. They are super excited! Be sure to follow us on instagram for updates. Thanks to Lucky Little Learners for the inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by! Head on back to Doodle Bugs to check out some more Five for Friday fun!
