Preschool Back To School Bulletin Board Idea

Today From the Treasure Chest


Today I found a very colorful and creative Prize Pass Catalog! It is a catalog that you can use to show your students things they can do when awarded for their good behavior such as taking their shoes off for the day or allowing a stuffed animal on their desk for the day.prize pass bookThis was found on Christie’s First Grade Fever Blog Smile

Here is a creative and inexpensive  idea on class jobs for the students.   Looks like all you need is a newspaper, popsicle sticks, some small colored envelopes (I’ve seen these at the dollar store) and a computer and printer for the labels.  This would be a nice 1st day of school activity for the students to decorate their popsicle stick. Maybe you could also incorporate some yarn for the hair and google eyes 🙂

Hello to All!

This is the beginning of a great journey for me.  I am a college student on my way to becoming an elementary school teacher.  I am 29 years old, a mother of two beautiful children and am happily married for the past 10 years to my husband.  This blog will track the many journeys that will take place during my career as an educator and be a place for myself and others to share their wonderful ideas about teaching, methods and practices, art, and more!!!
