About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

Paper Plates Day 2

Here are the self portraits. You may have to lick on the picture to see Collin's "face". He insisted on using his favorite color, orange, that you can't see very well in the pic. ;)

We made happy and sad faces on a plate and then I came up w/ things like, "It's your birthday, your toy was taken, more red juice... etc" and they had to flip to the happy or sad plate to express how they would feel.

Ronni did this one while Collin did the following activity. I put stickers on wax paper (easier to remove than the original sheet they were on) and she peeled them off and stuck them on her plate.

We thought this one may be too difficult for Ronni. I let Collin color a paper plate however he wanted and then cut it into 6 pieces. I then used a whole paper plate for him to put his "puzzle" back together on. It held the pieces in place better.
