Project Chef Today - hooray!!!!

My class got a chance to try Project Chef. 
It's a fabulous program run by Chef Barb Findlay and her non-profit society.
Here's just a little peek at our morning.
Check out how organized they are and how everything is prepped for the kids.

So I'm a little tardy...


I actually had this post up and ready 2 weeks ago, but then life got
 in the way.  I was waiting to give credit to the lovely person
who created this Earth Day pack that I got last year, but I finaly
decided to post this up and then hopefully I'll get my
@#$%@  (I mean stuff) together and remember to write down
the info and post it.  But for now, I hope you'll bear with me.

So here's my hallway bulletin board

I know that they're hard to read.  I'll try to scribe them for you lower
 down this post. Anyway,  here's the rest of my bulletin board. 
I have such a large class this year, that their work doesn't fit
 all on one bulletin board.  So I simply staple them to
the wall beside the bulletin board so that everyone's work get up.

This craft started by tracing a paper plate and then drawing their
impression of a globe in the circle Then they used acrylic paint to
paint green.    (I love how vibrant it is) Then they painted the blue
with acrylic paint.  Then they added some styrofoam peanuts to
make 'mountains'.  When it was all dry, they used the same
 acrylic green to paint  over the styroforam - it worked perfectly.

Then we did some writing.  (like I said above, I'll get the reference
 out soon, very soon)  Anyway, when they were done,
 they died a good copy and we posted it up. 

I also had taken their class photos for another project, and
decided to add the little paper mustaches afterwards. 
The kids thought they were hillarious.

Some of the ways my class would help the Lorax, include...

"I would never litter"
"I will save water"
"I will reuse paper"
"I will never chop down trees"
"I will always recycle"
"I will reduce some things that I can."


Word Work Centres and Currently

Here's a peek into my morning today. I finally organized my literacy centres with some freebies from TPT.  I'll come back tomorrow and post the links to the creative people who made these wonderful centres, but of course, that info is at school, and I am here at home.  Ever have that happen to you?

As you can see, Some of these centres are seasonal, and out of season, but the kids don't mind.  And it's all I have for now.  Next year, I'm going to be super organized and make sure I dont' have to use centres out of season.  the kids love them though, and they're good practice, especially for early finishers.

And I'm joining up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade for her monthly Currently.
Here's mine.
Yeah I know that bucket list is more of a New Year Resolution list.
But it's what I want to do this summer.
