Wow, what a busy few weeks we've had coming back to school. After joining the blogging world right before our two weeks Winter holidays, I've gone back to school with heaps of new ideas for changes I want to make to my class.
One thing I've done is make a chart paper holder under my interactive whiteboard. I used two G-clips and a wooden rod. I saw this somewhere on the web so if it was you let me know and I'll give credit.
Here's part of my new Daily 2 board - see my previous post about why I can't do the Daily 5. Up the top I've put the days of the week and along the left side the group names. Because I can only do certain activities, I've stipulated what students do each day rather than letting them choose. I still have to separate the days somehow but it's working for now.
Here's a simple art activity that we did last week. We sponged some paper and let it dry while we used pastels or crayons to draw ourselves and an umbrella. We cut these out and glued them on the dried sponged paper and cut out some blue paper and silver card to stick on as raindrops.
