birthdays

From Erica Bohrer's Classroom: LOVE this birthday board idea! Great idea for family birthdays so non readers can see too! or for readers, so they can practice writing in birthday cards!

So I will not forget a birthday. Children are grouped by month and they are holding a card with the number of the day written on it.

Class Birthdays display - Take a group picture of the kids holding a sign with their birth date on it, then hang it under or next to the month. Give kids date and have them put in correct order.make it math related!

Place Value - We keep track of how many days we have been in school…while working on place value at the same time. I love the visual aspect of adding the cups underneath it. (I found them at the Dollar Tree and stuck them onto the board with velcro.) The kids add a stick for each day. I wanted to use plain ole popsicle sticks, but my cups would not hold enough of them. So, I found these smaller sticks at Michaels. Once they have ten sticks in the cup labeled “ones”, we rubber band them ...

What a great idea. I am always losing pieces to my calendar section. everything flips. No more buckets of extra calendar numbers

Great motivation to find the "just right" book recommended by a teacher!

Miss Malarkey Leaves No Reader Behind by Judy Finchler, Kevin O'Malley. The school principal has challenged the students to read books. Miss Malarkey works to inspire her students to love reading.

Front folders for unfinished work instead of inside desks where sometimes the work disappears into black holes.
