So I'm getting ready for Fall and the start of the school year.
I am linking up with Five For Friday this week.
Here's what's going on in my universe these days.
This was supposed to be the first week of school for us, but we have been on strike since June 14th, so this week we were back on the picket line. Here are some photos of the Where's Waldo display our staff made to make fun of our Premier.
Because we aren't at school, I offered up my "tutoring" services to my family. So every afternoon from 1 to 3 I am tutoring my kids - grade 2 and 3, My neighbor's daughter - grade 2, and my nephews, Grades, K,1,2,and 3. 7 Kids in my dining room. So far, no major problems and when they act up I send them out to jump on the trampoline. Here's the best photo I could come up with.
As you can see from the photo, some kids are out on the trampoline when I took this.
My daughter looks thrilled right? She's the only one having a lot of trouble with this.
This week I revamped one of my freebies.
It's been a pretty popular one, and now it's much cuter!
for a free copy.
I have a new ELA product in my store this week.
This is a product with printable posters and blackline masters to create a student workbook of songs and poems that they can take home and share with their parents.
There are songs and poems for every major holiday
Veterans (Rememberance) Day
St. Patrick's Day
and a whole series of songs and poems about the colors for months like August and September.
There are versions which include the American and Canadian spellings of words like "color" and "colour".
I recommend keeping these in a student Duo-Tang and adding pages as the year goes on. In my class I send these books home on the weekends and expect the kids to read them to their parents over the weekend and bring the book back to school on Mondays.
And here's a product I am really, really proud of.
