Flower Power

So today was our first planning day since school started! I plan with three grade levels one week on Tuesdays, for an extended 90-minute planning period. Then, I plan with the other three grade levels the next Tuesday. Today I met with third, fifth, and first grade.


We're getting started with our fiction study by really spending some time on character analysis. I'll have more on that in a few days! Excited to share some of the ideas we came up with!

To kick off our year on a positive note, I spent about an hour or two last night making 40 flower pens! I followed the directions Tanja from Journey of a Substitute Teacher wrote as a guest blogger on my blog two summers ago. They were easy to follow and the pens turned out so cute!
You can find the directions here.


Each teacher walked away today with a pen, and I saved a few to cute-ify my room! Love these, and they took SOOOOO much less time than the Rolo Pencils I did last year!
