Can you hear it? "Schooooools....out....for....summer"!!!! Or, did you ever chant this: "No more pencils! No more books! No more teachers dirty looks! When the teacher rings the bell, drop your books and run like h*ll!! Well, I see summer time a bit differently now that I'm the teacher!! I see summer time as a great opportunity to learn new things, create things for my classroom, and devise new project ideas!! This summer is no different than the last 17. However, thanks to Pinterest, I am finding so many new ideas that it's hard to keep up!! Gosh, so far, I've bought ID tags for vocabulary, folders for privacy barriers, new beach theme decorations, flip-flops for days of the week labels, pom-poms for erasers at the end of dry erase markers, bamboo place mats to display Essential Questions, binder to keep new curriculum ideas, etc. I have started a page for Organization Ideas. I included my first project on this page so check it out under 'For Parents and Students'. Gosh, so much to do and so little summer left!! LOL!!! Oh, and I'm learning about Flipping a Classroom! Any recommendations? Yaaaa summer!!!!!!
