Be Free Mr Worm! { Freebie Update}

Hiya there Peeps

Shuna here

If you have been reading you know that we had tons of wormy fun last week but we never did get around to freeing the worms...until today!

We are already deep into our plant unit so we figured it was time to say goodbye to our slimy friends!

The worms didn't want to be set free

It took us a while to find them

Bye little worm

It has been fun!


Today I had a light bulb moment

You know when you see an idea and it is so simple that you think, "Hey why didn't I think of that!"

Well I had one of those moments today. I have somewhat of a small room with limited space so I am always on a mission to fight the clutter

Especially during center time

With all of the center material, anchor charts I can statements and teacher models 

the paper can take over quick! So here is a simple idea to reduce all the paper and it involves a 3 ring binder.

I use tubs and bins for my math and literacy stations but when I do science stations I am really struggling with where to put the materials for science centers. So the idea that my teaching partner had was to use binders with the clear covering. 

Inside the front cover are the teacher models so the students know what to do in each station


She did the whole sheet as a model

I won't do that 

I would do a few so that the kiddos get the gist and actually work by themselves instead of just copying

Inside the binders I would put the recording sheets and a pencil pouch that could hold the scissors, glue sticks, pencils and markers that they would need.

The seed planting station

Isn't that a cool idea?

Well at least I thought so!

So much easier for me to get my science stations going

and this could translate to other centers as well

The sky is the limit


Remember my book order post from here 

I have a ton of book order forms left over each month and the teacher in me knew that it was such a waste just to throw all those books in the trash

So I came up with an idea that would put those book order forms to use

It was a genius idea if I do say so myself

and this little diddy was birthed!

At the time I thought this was the cutest thing ever


Now that I look at it I cringe 

Every freaking time

It was driving me nuts

Nuts I tell ya

So today someone downloaded it and left some positive feedback and that was the last straw!

The ugliness has got to go

So long story short

I updated the file

Much better

Peace Out Peeps
