I have about 5 boxes that I keep up on a high shelf shelf. My students have been curious about the contents all year. With all the end of the year fun, it was time to pull them down today.
We have three big events planned within the last 12 days of school.We are currently questioning our sanity for not spreading things out!
Last year they had a special guest come in while I was on maternity leave. This woman works with children in Haiti. She told our students that what they needed most was underwear.
Last year we put on three plays – one from each class. The admission was a pack of underwear or undershirts. We are doing the same this year.
My class is performing “Bouki Dances the Kokioko: A Comical Tale from Haiti.” The book is out of print, but it is one of my favorites! I wrote a script from the book a few years back.
Usually I have each group design their own set/backdrop. This is the queen size sheet that my students from last year designed and painted.
I am also loving the case from the iPevo Wishpool. Both are worth checking out if you are not familiar with them!
We are in the process of tweaking the even list. We do everything from sprints and long jump to kick the shoe and shave the balloon. Anyone have a favorite field day event for us?
~~~~~~~~~~~~Thank you to everyone who posted kind words about my new position next year.
I will be using Chrome Books with my kids. Does anyone have experience using Chrome books or Google Apps in the classroom? I’m looking for ideas!
I got the okay this week to set up the room as a STEAM lab. I have a vision of what I want to do and I am extremely excited about it all!
Now to get through the rest of this school year first…
