3rd Hour - Playing Card Fences
Once again in groups, students had to take 26 playing cards & build a fence with the most area in it. Cards had to touch each other & could not lay flat on the desk. I was very surprised how creative my students were.
My homeroom students had study hall so the little kids colored & made foam picture frames. (I took a group picture of the little kids for their frames.)
A group picture!!!!!
5th Hour - Cereal Box Guitars
Using a cereal box, a paper towel roll, scissors, & rubber bands, students made guitars. The little kids had a blast decorating the boxes while my students did the cutting. The guitars turned out so cute. (Wouldn't you know I forgot to take pictures of them?!)
Zander waiting for his guitar to get its strings.
Zoe smiling at her decorated guitar.
The little kids enjoyed their lunch from McD*nalds while watching a movie. Afterwards, they went outside for some playground fun.
Students were given 2 items - newspapers & masking tape. Each group was to design a chair that they thought would hold an adult. Once they were completed, my aide Laurie went around the room trying out each chair. We actually had two chairs that held up. Again, I didn't get any pictures. Sorry!
Morgan hoping her group's chair will hold up.
7th Hour - Free PeriodDuring my planning period the kiddos danced, wrote on my white board, colored, etc. in my classroom.
Here's Ravyn teaching Zoe, Morgan, & Zander a cheer!
Dismissal - 2:45 PM
Before we knew it the day was over. I think all of the kids had a great time with Mom or Dad at work. Can't wait to see what's in store for next year. Zoe's already talking about it!!!!!!
