    like this anchor chart and the source looks really promising too! All Things Upper Elementary: Teaching Theme: Anchor Chart

    Theme & Main Idea. Teach kids to learn the difference between the two, and they will FINALLY understand how they both function in books!

    What a great way to address writing skills/illustration of thoughts than to have them apply for what job they want the first rotation of the year?! I want to make one of the boxes an illustration box, though...expecting a lot will need to dictate.

    This is my Safe Keeper Box. The box is from IKEA and the wooden shapes are from Michaels.

    Cute and helpful! This mini poster takes the Conscious Discipline idea of "Be a S.T.A.R." and gives concrete ways to "star" throughout the day in other ways. Add your own desired categories! #iheartcd

    Science experiments and activity ideas for 4 and 5 year olds

    {Science Experiment: The Floating Egg} She writes, "As I hovered the egg over a jar of water, I asked my 3.5 year old, “Will it sink or float?”and it reminded me of Dave Letterman’s funny sketch, “Will it Float?” Have you seen it? This science experiment is really easy to set up + clean up, and the lesson learned on the density of water actually stuck with my 3-year old daughter long after the experiment was over. Fun and success!"
