    About Puerto Rico. It's accurate, except for the name. The original name was Borikén, the natives' name for the Island. The Spaniards renamed it la Isla de San Juan Bautista, or the Island of St. John the Baptist. Since all Spanish ships, leaving America full of gold, had to stop in the island for staples for their long voyage to Spain, the name was eventually changed to Puerto Rico or Rich Port, for all the gold that arrived in the Island.

    this was grade 1. We painted the background first. Then painted a paper plate for the center to make it POP. We looked at all sorts of real sunflowers fro inspiration of how the petals overlapped...but then went our own funky way creating a flower of our dreams! They were amazing in person.

    What kind of teacher do you want? 1st day activity

    Five-finger retell! This is a simple way for students to remember how to write summaries. The teacher can hang these hands up in the classroom or students can simply use their own hands if they can't see the ones hung up. This lesson can be done by having students go through the five finger retell on a story they have previously read.

    After reading a wintry book, allow your students to make snow paint. Snow paint is inexpensive, easy to make, and tons of fun. To make snow paint simply mix equal amounts of white glue and shaving cream together. Cut out various winter shapes such as snowmen and snowflakes from cardstock. Allow your little ones to spread their snow all over their shapes. When the snow paint dries, it will become puffy. Your students will have a blast with this activity!
