kindness day 21

This year for kindness day, 11.13.21, our campus is celebrating by wearing cardigans for Mr. Rogers. Crowns 👑 have been added because we are in Texas and can’t always wear a sweater in November. In fact- finding a cardigan for my kids wasn’t the easiest! We will be reading books, creating crowns, and finding ways to use google tools to create. To edit the room below, visit and make a copy. The bitmoji is also linked, so check out the link before replacing with your own bitmoji.

national crayon day march 31

make your own crayon color (1)In celebration of crayons and coloring (two much appreciated pillars of childhood) I curated a library of read alouds, videos of making crayons, drawing instructions, and more. My favorite part will be students using google drawing to create and name their own custom crayon color. You can see my custom color inventions using google drawing at left. I love all shades of green- but love hearing the names kids come up with for new colors almost as much! This blog would be fun to share, too, it has the list of all current crayon colors, might inspire the name selection. Happy creating!

it’s gonna be honeybee day (8.15)

I love bees so I just couldn’t wait until August for World Honeybee Day to indulge in the latest buzz in education (sorry). Everyone is making bitmoji classrooms, but I like outdoor scenes even more, after all we are not taking any field trips anytime soon. There are books read aloud on youtube, a few fun fact videos, some games, and a bit more. If you view the slide in presentation mode you can listen to the Flight of the Bumblebee (which some people find stressful). This will be something fun to either wrap up the summer or start the new year for elementary students. You could certainly add middle school books for this topic instead…What can you add? I am sure to find a few more things before August. To make your own copy of this slide, click on the image.
