We all know what I will be doing tomorrow - thinking about next year's lessons and going to town on these blogs with the MAJOR discounts :) - in addition to at our school we have a Teacher Appreciation Week Surprise :)

Wonder what it will be!?!?!

Duty Free Lunch?? A Special Treat? A Snack?

Solids, Liquids, Gases, Oh MY! from Lesson Plan SOS!

For the past two weeks, my class has been working on Matter & Solids, Liquids, and Gases!

We did experiments in class and Science Lab as well as watched a couple of Brain Pop Jr Videos.

While being a TBA, I saw a while back that Lesson Plan SOS (my fav!) had a culminating project about Solids, Liquids, and Gases! Once it was time to take down our Sponge Bob Fractions, I thought, let me Lesson Plan SOS my outside wall again with the Solids, Liquids, and Gases, Oh My!

Luckily, the past two years while finishing up Grad School, I had SAVED (or my fiance would say HOARDED) away my old Real Simple, Rachel Ray, Martha Stewart, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Day magazines that I would grab while in my spare time.

After going through all the magazines to take out all the unneccesary items, and the hundreds of free perfume samples (because we all know they would mess and want to smell like those! ha!), I was ready!

For two days, we spent time working on our SLG Booklets, while comparing it to the rubric that Lesson Plan SOS provided for FREE! so they knew what they needed in it for their grade.

Hard At Work

These turned out WONDERFUL and I cannot wait to use them again next year! All my hallmates think they are not only cute - but a fun way for the kids to learn. So I am "pimping" out Lesson Plan SOS on my blog & at my school for everyone to check out.

What Fun LEARNING Activities Have You Done Lately?

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to ALL!!!

As my first year of teaching (well since November) is quickly coming to an end.

It is time for teachers all across the US to be appreciated.

Check out LOFT because they are doing $10 off a $50 purchase this week :)
