I know it's been a while but life just keeps getting in the way of our little blog here. As I type this I should already be asleep because I have been tired for the last two hours, yet here I am!
I thought we would share a simple and fun activity the Reading Buddies got together to do the end of last month. We had all been working our little behinds off with SGOs, preassessments, data collection, report cards, parent/teacher conference, and you know-TEACHING that it was time for a little fun. As they say, sometimes you just have to pull out the paint.
I found some lovely autumn colors in my closet and a sheet of card stock for each student (regular paper would have ripped or dried weirdly). I poorer the paint to each table and Q-tips as paint brushes. This way the little ones couldn't over do it with the paint and I could throw the Q-tips out which means no paint brushes to clean and dry and put away. Everything we used just went in the trash.
Here are just a few of our lovely Fall Trees.
Hope you've had some fun in your classroom lately, if not...IT'S TIME TO PULL OUT THE PAINT!
