I LOVED the Lator Gator board idea. Since I'm in 2 buildings - I made two gators!
Burlap fish - I hot glued them instead of sewing and they are staying together :)
This is the beginning of the rocket for the hallway bulletin board at school # 2. I'm going to paint it tomorrow.
I've also been working on my signs for the daily objectives for each group. They will be finished while I catch up on Gossip Girl tonight. I bought ribbon for it already. I updated my assessment forms. I created 3 mini-units (visualizing, predicting, and creative writing). I did some online back to school shopping for new clothes today and I've started re-organizing my closet.
Monday I plan on going to the teacher center to laminate the daily objective signs, the gators, and the rocket. Then I'll be off to my classrooms to start decorating :)
