Technology Training Completed

WOW! I just completed the best summer PD I have had in a long time! There are so many apps on my IPAD now! It's a good thing that summer is here so that I can prepare all of this new technology for my classroom next school year! Guess what I have been working on this evening? Scan the code to find out! If you are not sure how to do it on your IPAD, leave a comment and I will tell you how!

Framing Robots

I have been looking everywhere for robot pictures or posters without any luck. So, I decided to make my own. I found these turquoise frames at Ikea and purchased a pack of robot scrapbooking paper. I added a few other little embellishments and well, here they are!

Pirate Plans

The teacher in me has been writing some sea chanteys, as I seem to be in pirate mode these days. These songs are part of my upcoming pack: "Pirate Quest for the Treasure Chest."
Moreover, When I am not teaching, I love creating paper bag albums in my scrapbooking spare time. So, I thought why not combine the best of both worlds and incorporate some paper bag albums into my teaching. Look at this adorable "My Pirate Adventure" book I have been working on. I am making it easy enough so that my first graders can make one! Love ribbons and tags! I'll post more details once these two products are completed. Am I the only teacher working on school stuff during the summer? I'd love to hear what you are working on! Also, I will be posting my first giveaway prize soon! Check back because you don't want to miss it! ~Tava

Rounding Up Robots!

What a great first official week off from school! While school is still fresh on the mind, I am already looking ahead to next school year! I know, it is summer break! However, you know how quickly the new school year approaches while enjoying these summer months. Look at some of the cute additions I found for my space themed classroom! I purchased some new fabric for my bulletin boards. Did I mention that I am incorporating robots into my space theme? How adorable are these little robots! How about this cute rug? It has all of the colors of our space theme, with turquoise being the main color. I can't wait to see how it all comes together next school year! One of my parent volunteers made this "Unpaper Towel Space Roll" for me! How creative and perfect for our classroom! Well, that is all for now. I guess I should go out and enjoy the summer sun while I can! ~Tava
