Now, party animals…find your pins, blog about it, grab my buttons, and link back up here on my blog. What is so interesting about Mother’s Day, candy bars, Skin Shield, and dice? View my pins from the week…
mother's day

If you’re still looking for a Mother’s Day activity to do with your students, here’s a pretty easy (teacher prep-wise) craft to do. It’s a flipbook that students can complete to tell why they love their moms…aww…What craft did your students do or what activity will they do for Mother’s Day?
An Apple For The Teacher: Roll and Retell - Building Summarizing, Communication, and Writing Skills
I can never pass up creative ways to help my students with their comprehension and retell. This can be done independently, with a partner, or with a small group. I would love to even have this as a bookmark! What do your students use to aid them in retell?
give your students an end of the year celebration they will NEVER forget!
Isn’t this the cutest thing ever! Our school has an awards day, but we only announce certain things like honor/banner roll, most improved, etc. I always do class awards after awards day because I have special awards for each student. I love this idea of setting up a “red carpet” and letting the students walk the carpet as they receive their awards. I also love the candy bar awards.
Temporary draw-on tattoo for child safety during amusement park, zoo trips and vacation

When I first saw on Pinterest, I was very amazed. It is a temporary tattoo that you draw on a child’s arm. I assume that applying the Skin Shield (I have never heard of this!!) prevents the writing from coming off in water. This would be useful for field trips, but I’m not so sure about writing on my students’ arms. It is clever nonetheless. What do you think?
