Our open house is coming up! My bulletin board in the hallway is spring ready! I updated my borders & background. The background is wrapping paper from Target :)
Our hallway bulletin boards are required to have writing displayed on them. The picture above has their opinion writing pieces on it. This week I updated the board with their realistic fiction stories (below).
There are a few art projects below the board that we have been working on. The flowers are covered in tissue paper. The template for this craft came from Mess for Less. There is a free template on their blog!
The other project is a cute caterpillar! This project came from Buggy and Buddy. We got the sponges from the dollar store and already had paint at school. So that we could finish the project in one day, we had the kids do their sponge painting in the morning. Then it had time to dry so that they could cut it out, add their eyes, antennae, and legs in the afternoon. They turned out really cute too!
I also started a summer countdown right outside our classroom door. It's time.
Tuesday was my student teacher's last day with us! We threw her a little party with a surprise gift. Over the last few weeks, the kids were bringing in supplies for her gift. They would drop them off with the school secretary before coming to the room in the morning. She ended up with some nice goodies!
Happy spring, everyone!
