First things first, I received my master’s degree tonight!!
So excited and thankful that I was able to go through such a WONDERFUL program!
I learned so much these past few years and had some of the greatest instructors ever! It has definitely helped make me a better teacher!
And of course I am so thankful for my wonderful husband and family for their never-ending love and support!
I’ve mentioned my love of glitter before and am so happy that I have more glittery goodness to add to my classroom!
This started after seeing a pin from the blog DeLoop. I loved the larger Martha Stewart glitter that she used! I followed her instructions (I have never used E6000 glue before and let me tell you, it is not fun! It was all over my hands by the end of this! Totally worth it though!).
Next I added numbers! I saw this idea on Erin’s blog. Each week I send home parent bulletins on Friday which are due on Wednesday, and Wednesday Folders which are due on Friday. That’s a lot to keep track of, and just checking it off on my checklist doesn’t help remind my students who needs to turn in what!
SO I made two sets of these glitter magnets… the blues for the parent bulletins and the greens for the Wednesday folders (or vice versa… haven’t decided yet). I will have them up on the whiteboard next to the homework. My homework checker will take down the numbers of the students who have turned in their things, so the students who haven’t turned them in yet will see their number when they go to write down their homework! Just a little extra reminder that I’m hoping will make my life a whole lot easier!
I’ll have to take more pictures of the system when we go back to school in the fall, but it’ll start out looking something like this on my whiteboard:
Then as my students turn their things in their numbers will come down! And of course they’ll go up again each time I pass out the bulletins/folders.
