First Grade ROCKED

The end is near!! It's crazy... 

Teaching...it's a lot like Motherhood

The days are long, but the years are short.

Is that not the truth, or what?!

Well, the last week or so, we've been doing a lot of end of the year fun. We still have 3 days left, but I wanted to share with you one of my NEW favorite-ist thing ever to do at the end of the year.

Rock Guitars.

Oh. My. Lanta. They were so amazing. So beautiful. So fun. I love them!

Here's a close up of a few....



I gave them NO direction whatsoever. I just let them paint.  I drew a tracer guitar on a big 24x18 tagboard paper and then traced and cut them out for them. I let them choose which color they wanted. They colored the whole thing, then once they dried, I drew a circle and told them paint it black.

After that was dry, I took a chisel tip sharpie and drew the strings, and then let them add details to it.


We took individual pictures... SO perfect!! I had the kids bring in sunglasses, but I also had a stockpile from over the years that they could borrow.



Absolutely PERFECT.


Then we took a group picture. Oh Man. I can't get enough of it!


I made this sign with my cameo... the letters are the size of half of a piece of paper.  


I made it to match the one I made in the beginning of the year... the pictures of my kids in the beginning of the year (you can see my post on the beginning of the year HERE)





I sent my parents (in our class shutterfly site) a before/after shot of our class using the signs. 


I put them in the exact same order as the first picture. And yes, I just HAPPENED to be wearing the same dress. lol 

 So we "Rocked On!" on Thursday, and then on Friday, we had our Pirate day to end our Ocean Unit. 


I love how some of my students got SO into the theme day! I really need to plan this better next year. It was SO last minute, but I realized I hadn't done it yet this year, so I had to squish it in!


Sadly, I didn't get any pictures of our day... really?? I guess that's what happens when you're having fun. haha

THREE. More. Days.

The first grade rocked indeed. You must have had a lot to do with your kids. Their smiling faces tell that you have done some great work as a teacher. I am sure that you have become a mentor for them throughout this first year. Your students might not have to write any custom essays for college anytime soon, but I know that in your lesson planning you had included all the necessary activities for them to train their writing skills. I would like to see what your plan for a second year looks like.

Writing the menu is the fun part of opening a new restaurant. But how do you know how much to charge so you can be sure to make a profit? Food cost and portion control are two things that will help you price your menu correctly, but you also have to be careful not to price yourself out of the local market. It's challenging to create a balanced menu that fares well against the competition and keeps you in business.

There is nothing better than stove popped popcorn. It has what tastes better white or yellow popcorn been a family favorite for as long as I can remember. I learned how to pop popcorn on the stove at the knee of my father, who learned from his father, and so forth and so on. Okay, that’s not true, while my dad did teach me, I have no idea where he learned How to Make Popcorn on the Stove. All I know is that stove popped popcorn is the best.
