My new principal is on campus learning all about our school in preparation for the new year, which begins in July. I am so honored to have been a part of the hiring process. If you haven't been on a hiring committee, I highly recommend volunteering for one in the future. It is not only interesting, but you really gain perspective on the whole process. Plus, you may find someone fun and excited about taking on a new school!
While working obsessively relaxing during my short summer vacation, I have been creating lessons and preparing for my implementation of Daily 5. In the process, I looked at some of my clip art and decided to create something for all of the PreK-1st grade teachers out there. It has six activities that teach and review numbers 1-10 as well as color words. I had a kindergarten teacher check it to make sure it is appropriate for the young guys and she OK'd it. If you want to start the school year with some cute activities, download it from one of my teacher stores. Enjoy!
Did you notice that the image above is a collage vs. a snapshot of the cover of my lesson? I found a tutorial recommended by Amy Lemons on the Teachers Pay Teachers Sellers Forum (technology section) and downloaded Picassa onto my laptop. I used it to create this collage pretty easily and am so glad I finally know how to do it. Now I can create previews for my teacher stores that give people a better idea of what to expect from my work. Thank you for the tip, Amy Lemons!
