Doodle Book Cover

I make each of my kids a doodle book.  I bind together this Doodle Book Cover, the idea page, a whole lot of white paper, and voila!  The kids love to doodle, and I love that they are using those little hand muscles while getting those creative juices flowing.

Lesson Plan Book Template

I just started creating my 2011/2012 plan book.  I have used this format for the past several years and it works really well for me.  I use a word document and insert a table.  Super easy.  You can access the template here.

"We do. . ." Art

"We do. . ." artwork is popping up all over the place.  I love reading all of the different versions for the classrooms and homes.  This is the one I whipped up for my classroom.

I will add this copy to my back to school packet, but I also plan to paint it onto a board so that it will be permanent art in my classroom.

Second Things First? First Things Second?

With a move to a new school comes a move to a new grade level.  Second graders, here I come!  While I am sad to be leaving the littles I am excited about picking up the pace and digging a little deeper.  So what is a novice blogger to do?  Change my blog?  Change the name of my blog?  I am leaning toward keeping it simple and just doing first things first, but in second ;)
