2. I wanted to share what one of the first grade classes made at my school for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. All the students started out with the same color paints in a cup. Then they had to mix more paints to match the color of their hand. The point of the activity is that everyone started out with the same colors in their cups. She said she has been doing this for years....long before Pinterest was ever invented :)
3. My Friday Freebie are labels to help organize your leveled library. I'm am responsible for our book room. When I started my job five years ago, we didn't have a book room for teachers. Right now it is not picture worthy! It started out the year in AWESOME shape, and then we received about 2000-3000 books from a school that had closed. It had been a Reading First school, so they had awesome resources. Over parent teacher conferences, one of my projects is to work on it and get it back to perfection :) The picture below shows a cart of books. I laminated the labels and put them on cardstock.
Click here to download until 8pm tonight. If you like today's freebie, please leave feedback :)
