It warms my heart…

It sincerely makes me feel good when I see other teachers use my ideas in their own classrooms. I mean, I know I get feedback on TpT, but it’s honestly humbling when I can see for myself how others use my ideas.  I’ve gone to district in-services and seen my Math Posters on other 4th grade teacher’s walls. Um, way cool. So, when I came to school today and saw one of my teammates had hung the Autobiography file I had shared with him, I was super stoked. Let me introduce him… Here’s Steve. 🙂

This is how he looks EVERY morning  and EVERY afternoon when he goes out for bus duty. He was more than excited mortified when he was asked to take over this when the teacher who used to do it was going on maternity leave. I like to think of him as the human highlighter. I secretly love when he goes to leave for home and he still has the vest on. Then, I bring it to his attention, and he rips it off like it’s on fire.  Ahhh, good times, good times. Well, he has helped me TREMENDOUSLY with my reading instruction this year, so I am happy that I was able to give him a writing idea. What idea was that? Well, around the time my kiddos were finishing their Autobiography projects, I shared my files with my teammates. I’m not sure if the others used it or not, but I do know Steve did, because I even saw that he had created an anchor chart just like the one I used with my class. Aww. Well, his students completed theirs and today he hung them up.

Super cute!!! 🙂 Thanks, Steve. You made my day!

In case you missed my blog post about how I tweaked Christi Fultz’s original file, no worries! Christi has updated her file and let’s say… it’s way cute. Just click the picture below and visit Christi’s store where you can download her ENTIRE file for free. Don’t forget to leave her some feedback. She totally deserves it.

In other exciting news… today is officially the last day before the last 26 days of school. Confused?  LOL, what I mean is, that starting tomorrow my class is going to begin our…

I have seen this idea on Pinterest and ProTeacher, but I’ve never sat down and put ideas on paper. Luckily, one of my teammates very generously shared her ideas with our team. I was super excited she shared this and tomorrow the fun begins! To celebrate “A”, my class will be completing a Memorial Day Art project. Stay tuned… more pictures to come!

Speaking of warm…Steve looks so nice and warm in his coat and now it is 85degrees today! I love Steve! 🙂
My students love reading the work you and Steve publish on your bulletin boards! 🙂
