Snowmen...

I just wanted to post briefly on my latest bulletin board. It turned out so cute, I just couldn't keep it to myself!

See...



A few close ups...



I purchased the adorable project from Jennifer at First Grade Blue Skies. The short writing tells why we think our school is the best. It says, "There's "snow" place like AGM because..." My students has so much fun creating these after our week long snowman unit. Could be the perfect end for yours, too!

And since MLK Jr Day is coming up...


Here's the bulletin board I created for that. After much reading and discussion about who MLK Jr was, we brainstormed how we could make the world a better place. Some of my students really thought about the bigger picture and I was SOOOO proud. Some girls wanted to build houses for homeless people, some wanted to cut their long hair and give to Lock of Love (yes, they already knew what is was), and others wanted to give old toys and clothes to kids who didn't have money to buy their own. I'm not sure if this would really make the world a better place, but one of my little cuties wanted to decorate the world with lights to make it prettier. Smile!

The crayons were completed after we read The Crayon Box that Talked. Then we discussed our differences and reasons why we're so special. One by one, I told each of my students why I thought they were special. They then felt compelled to do the same... for me!! The things they said seriously brought tears to my eyes! Being loved by my students is one of the greatest joys of my job!! Anyways, if you like this bulletin board, you can get more information here. The first 5 to comment will also get it for FREE!! Enjoy your Monday off!

Best wishes,
