Five for Friday (May 30)


 
School is out!!  Now it is time to plan for my incoming students.  I have decided to use Stephany's Pirate Theme Decor for next year.  I am super excited about it too!!

I have even started printing and laminating!!  I am trying to work ahead.  It is hard with a 6 week old baby AND my 4 and 5 year old boys at home.  :)

As I was walking through Wal-Mart this week, I saw these pinatas.  I decided that they would be perfect for a first day time capsule.  I am going to have my students write their name and include a picture from the first day of school.  Then, on the last day of school I will have the students bust open the pinata to compare how much they have grown during the school year.

Speaking of classroom themes...
Even though I am excited about changing my decor, I am a little sad to see my Rock Star classroom go.  I even kept my door the same the entire year.  (Yes, I really don't like to admit it... but I did.)

I used my Rock Star or Rock and Roll Classroom Theme Decor Pack.  This is actually the pack I used in my kindergarten classroom this year.


Here are a few pictures from my classroom morning meeting board.




A student of mine was so gracious to have these cute bows made for baby Maddux.  I think my favorite is the red and blue baseball bow.  She made it because our family loves the Chicago Cubs!

 She had them made at KoKo's BOWtique.  Check out her Facebook page here.  I think she takes custom requests too!  Here are some cute ones that I think Maddux needs!!



I have spent most of the week calling different universities in the area.  I am considering getting my administration and principal leadership license.  I have actually decided that I am going to take the plunge and do it, I just haven't decided which university.  I already have my masters degree in education, so a few more classes and internship will be all I need.  I really have no desire of becoming a principal.  However, I am excited to take classes in leadership and education law.

Finally, our colleague at Warm and Fuzzy in First Grade has posted an incredible end of the year assessment for first grade.  You can check it out here.  She has it in her TpT store for only $2.00!!
