Today I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her infamous Five for Friday party. It's been awhile. Hope I remember how to do it! LOL!
They book was made from mailing envelopes and the idea and directions can be found in this book by Dinah Zike:
I dug out my collection of old scrapbook supplies. I highly recommend gathering old supplies of stickers, paper, ribbon, etc. The kids LOVED digging through it all looking for just the right thing for their book. It has taken about a week of work to finally finish them.
Text Features Pack. (If you own this pack be sure you have the most recently updated version.)
At my school we have several cluster classes. These classes are comprised of severely handicapped to autistic to Down Syndrome students. They are the sweetest bunch of kids you'll ever meet and their teachers are saints! I volunteered my class to take part in a program called Silver Pals. Once a week we visit their classrooms and my students play, teach, and learn with these very special kids. My kids LOVE this time of the week. It really warms my heart to see them so selfless and giving. On Valentines Day we delivered cards and cookies to them. Currently, my kids are practicing a song with them for our volunteer breakfast. I know it's going to be beautiful!
It's been a busy month full of fun and lots of learning!
