Winter Trees Art Center

I found the cutest idea on Pinterest for our art center. The first group of boys made theirs today, and they did a great job. They are super cute and I have attached the link in case you would like to make them too. Not only is this activity great for their fine motor skills, but I also talked to the boys about the shapes they saw in the pictures. This was a great and easy way for me incorporate math into the activity. Have a great day everyone!!!

Last Friday we celebrated MLK day. One thing we did to help the boys get a better understanding of the day was watch the book You are Special by Max Lucado on You Tube. This book was one of my favorites as a child, and I still love it today. I highly recommend watching this sometime!

MLK bulletin board

Some of my colleague made this incredible bulletin board for Martin Luther King day that I wanted to share with you. They had each student tell them what their dream was for the future , and then they took pictures of each them for the board. What a great way to help students of this age understand the importance of dreams!!! I love working with such creative people!!!

It's a .....

We did a really fun math activity with the boys this week. We let them guess if they think my Wonderful co-teacher Mrs. Perry will have a girl or boy. I gave each boy a piece of paper and told them to draw a picture of what they thought she would have. We then got out our big shower curtain graph and graphed their predictions. The boys of course think a little boy is on the way , but we won't know if their prediction is correct until next week so stay tuned...
