Here are a few of the many great resources I have found out in the blogging world.
Jessica from Joy in the Journey created an awesome 30 page packet of activities! She teaches fifth grade, but many of them are adaptable for different grades including acrostic poems, writing templates, and more!
Latoya from Flying into First has some awesome MLK activities. I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that they are FREE!!
Susan from TGIF created a great packet too. I just discovered her blog and I can already tell I am going to love her ideas and resources.
Susan is also having a MLK Giveaway!! She's teaming up with Lyndsey from A Year of Many Firsts. It's a great giveaway. You have the chance to win 2 packets!
Before I go, the last thing I want to share for Show and Tell is totally unrelated; however, I can't contain my excitement, so I have to include it in this post.
I got a...NEW MAILBOX!!!!!!!!
Awhile ago, in my Classroom Tour and Introduction post, I mentioned my evil, Leaning Tower of Mailbox, which was driving me crazy!! Well, thanks to my handy dandy daddy, I now have a new, awesome, totally terrific, functional, and beautiful, not-leaning mailbox!! He built it for me as a Christmas present!
Here's the Before and After:
|Leaning Tower of Mailbox|
|The back was literally falling off! |
This was not after heavy use, it started happening right after it was assembled.
|Hallelujah! Hallelujah! It is gorgeous!! I love it!|
|The shelves are quite spacious. |
I labeled them with colored dots with the students' numbers on them.
If you couldn't tell already, I love my new mailbox!! Better yet, the kids love it too! Even the janitor loves it! When he moved it in he commented that he is glad that he will no longer have to come help repair my old, junky one. :-)
Now that I have thoroughly expressed my love for my new mailbox, I will call it the end of Show and Tell Tuesday.
Thanks again to Sunny Days in Second for hosting!
