Time to join Five for Friday and to catch up with everyone after a busy 2nd week of school!
The temperature in Georgia is 89 and the humidity is off the charts but I started my Friday feeling like there’s FALL in the air! All it took was a dash of delicious Coffee-mate Pumpkin Spice creamer in my morning coffee! This big bottle costs less than one cup of that ol’ expensive Starbucks pumpkin latte, too!
We worked hard on our names this week at school. From rainbow writing to name puzzles and graphing how many letters to magically appearing names…these kids know their names well!
We also practiced our handwriting in a wonderful name booklet I found here. By the end of the week, my students were very proud of how well they could write their name and I was thrilled with their improvement!
On September 11th, our school had Red/White/Blue Day. Many of our students are trying to learn the Pledge of Allegiance, so I decided a Flag Napkin Book would be fun! I found a package of patriotic July 4th beverage napkins in the clearance bin at the grocery store. Then I cut white paper to fit inside and stapled it all together.
Next, I printed the words to the Pledge of Allegiance with simple graphics I found here. The kids cut the pictures, put them in the right order, and glued each page into their napkin book.
And this is what the assembled Flag Napkin Book looks like:
I was inspired to create these by the wonderful Kim Jordano in her Bookmaking session at I Teach K this summer! The possibilities for Napkin Books are endless!
I have a gift card to a local nursery that I’m itching to spend. I’m ready for fall flowers to freshen up my planters and pots. Something like this would be beautiful! I’m really afraid it’s still too hot.
Only happened a few times this week but it always makes me smile!
Have a wonderful weekend!
