In keeping with the African American cultural unit, kinders made these adorable lion portraits in Art last week. Starting off with the lion face, we colored in the features with neutral colored crayons. Next, I put orange, yellow, & brown paint on their tables and showed them how to paint straight lines radiating from the lion's face to represent the mane. Lastly, I put pieces of neutral colored yarn on the tables & let them glue pieces of yarn on top of the lion's mane. Here are just a few…

Hello again! I know it's been a while since I've actually blogged, but I really have been doing some fun and exciting things in my classroom.

I loved that the students were able to direct their own learning by determining how many coins they wanted to include in each of their…

A few weeks ago (yes, a few weeks...I'm slightly behind in blogging about our days at school.) I did a little mini unit on rules and laws. I don't think I really need to go into it TOO much. I mean, I feel like kids get it. But nonetheless, I do it every year. I read this cute little book... Then we do our circle maps and discuss Rules and Laws, and we establish that Laws are RULES that citizens of the community follow. Makes sense, right? Right. We also spend some time reading the David…
