This has been the craziest week! I feel tonight was the first time I sat down all week. I finally finished my door on Monday. If you don't already know, I am obsessed with Valentine's Day. I really start my preparations the day after Christmas. I decided to combine my winter and Valentines door to save myself some time later on. I think it turned out really cute!
The other super exciting thing that happened this week is that I received my iPod Touches from Donors Choose! I wrote a grant with Donors Choose asking for two iPod Touches to use in my classroom. I was so shocked and excited when my entire project was funded! These iPod Touches have added so much fun and excitement to our classroom. I have found some amazing apps to use during Daily 5 center time. I will share them with you in a future post : ) Donors Choose is an amazing way to ask for some additional materials for your classroom!
One of the things I did to explain the rules to the kids was to create a contract. I went over it with the students multiples times and then I sent it home for the parents to review. Here is a copy of my contract for you to look at for a reference.
I am obsessed with this cute clip art as well. And I finally made my own font (that wasn't terrible) using the iFont Maker app.
I have nothing to do this weekend and I am just on cloud nine about it. I can't wait to sleep in, read blogs and online shop. I'm sure I will also end up at school working on somethings : ) Have a wonderful weekend!
