It’s been a wonderful Monday! No school because of the Columbus Day holiday so I checked a ton off my To Do list! I’m sharing my recent projects with Tara’s Monday Made It, which is one of my favorite linky parties!
I bought several of these Back to School printed cardstock packages at Michaels and created a Class Photo Album! I used a little 4×6 photo album from the Dollar Store and simply inserted the printed cardstock pages in the plastic sleeves. I included a picture of each child along with their name. The Class Photo Album is kept in the writing center so my students can use it for reference whenever they want to write a classmate’s name. It’s a good way to practice putting faces and names together if you have a substitute, too.
I made an Environmental Print word wall! It’s nothing fancy at all…black bulletin board paper, blue painter’s tape, and an old alphabet poster!
The kids brought in baggies filled with words, logos, names of things they can READ! Our goal is to have something for EVERY letter of the alphabet!
Our Georgia weather is crazy! We’ve had a few wonderful days of cooler temps and autumn breezes mixed among days where it’s as hot and humid as the middle of summer. I’m ready for FALL to be here so I’ve decorated with my pumpkin collection and put out the Bath & Body Works pumpkin soaps.
Today I made a huge batch of applesauce! I got a great deal on apples at our local Kroger…three big bags for only $3 total! The nicest surprise was that the bags contained a great assortment of everything from Red Delicious to Galas and Fuji to Honeycrisps! I used light brown sugar instead of white for a change and let the apples cook ALL day on low in the crockpot. YUM!
I found a delicious recipe on Pinterest for Oreo Pumpkin Spice Truffles and made a tray to take to school tomorrow to share with my teacher friends! They were really easy to make but good luck finding the limited edition Oreos!
