While I was home in NY, I spent a lot of time working on my sisters wedding planning! My mom and I worked on crafts, shopping and brainstorming wedding day ideas! E (my sister) and Mom made homemade jams for all of the visitors staying at the hotel for the weekend. E and I tied ribbons on the jam jars, which was a little harder than it looks! haha We also made candle holders for the head table! :) We also made cups for the brides maids! The last picture is of the card box that I made! I still have to add their initials to the top tier, but its almost done!
We also had E's bachelorette party and had a fabulous day in the sun, a great dinner out, and ended the night at a rooftop restaurant! :)
One last thing....My mom is an amazing sewer! She made me a fantastic bag that is a perfect carry on or a perfect bag for when you go to target and buy too much and cant carry it all into school in one trip! With this bag I will not be taking multiple trips! :)
When I got back to NC, I slept for an entire day! haha :) When I got home I worked on tie dying some clothespins and they really turned out great! I dyed them red,orange,yellow,green,blue and purple! I am so excited to use these in my classroom!
Over track out, I also made these awesome bulletin boards! I am going to use these for my anchor posters in math, science, reading and writing. I cant wait to see how this works; I am hoping it keeps me organized and helps the students organize their subjects.
I have also been busy making a theme for my classroom. I am doing all stars! I even made a behavior management clip system! :) Each student has a clip that goes on our chart. At the end of each day my students color in their calendar a specific color. Each color means a different level of effort shown. This is the best way for me to communicate with parents and students to be able to visualize what they need to work on! :) Each student gets 3 chances before going on red. It keeps the students accountable for the behavior and it keeps me accountable also. It's great!
I have recently changed the colors to Level 4 effort (purple), Level 3 effort (green), and Level 2 effort (blue).
