My new obsession- community crayons

 Happy that my students and I finished our door! This one is taking us all the way until the end of the year!

For about 2 weeks, my students explored ocean animals through books and online. They were allowed to read these books (I had about 30 of them from our school library, whoops #hoarder) anytime that we were doing some kind of reading. I then had them pick their favorite sea animal which they had to write a report on. So much learning going on in these little kinder's minds! I will post some close ups of the writing soon!

Also, I started a new supplies table system. Two words- COMMUNITY CRAYONS. Why have I never done this? Sorted by color and everything! 

Happy teacher --> Happy students --> lots of learning :)

P.S. It took every ounce of self control to not fill these with fresh, new crayons and pencils.. August will be here soon enough... I shouldn't be thinking of August.

The cans are called seed containers and are from the Target dollar spot! Woohoo! I just covered them using scrapbook paper & tape!

Ugh, broken crayons need love too...

I have an ELL student who loves making these during word work. They work great for vocabulary!

Another fun activity I've been using to help with listening skills. I read a word problem and they have to listen and answer. Easy to differentiate for any level. Click the picture to check it out!

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone has a fantastic week! We have less than 30 days left! How many do you have?!
