The first week's password is me!
When my children walk in the door the 2nd day of school they read their first sight word!
( The first day it was up but
we were too busy to notice)
Day two we made little monkeys
to hang from my palm tree.
The first letter of their name is
on the front and full name on the back.
The girls got little flowers on their heads.
Some of the children wanted
their monkeys to hang upside down.
I found these cute monkey erasers at Target yesterday. I think "Zero the Hero"
may like these as a prize for
my kiddos on the 10th day of school!
Friday we made our
"How to make Chicka, Boom, Boom trees"
recipe. They loved them!
Here are three of my sweet
girls and their creations.
I'm busy writing a new cookbook
with a "How to" format to go
along with our Writer's Workshop lessons.
How many crayons tall are you?
I'm taking pictures of each
child to measure how tall they are in crayons.
Then we will make a class book!
I'll post when it is made.
I saw this darling idea on
Pintrist from the blog ApplesandABC's
and on Heidisong's Blog. I just had to do it too.
I bought the frame, painted it
(my lawn turned a lovely shade of blue),
taped on the letters, and
took the photos on the first day.
Then I decided my letters were too small
so I put new letters on and took the pictures
all over again on day two!

I have a parent volunteer
take pictures of the children
with their beach hat and flower
lei on the first day of school.
