I saw a fabulous idea for Rudolph, and I can't remember where I found it, but I took the idea and ran... I took pictures of my students using the black and white option on my camera. I printed them off and added a glitter red nose. Then, I had the kids cut out their pictures and make antlers to turn themselves into Rudolph. Next, the kids had to fill out a job application to apply for Rudolph's job this year, because he is retiring. They had to create their own Reindeer name and answer why they think they would be a good reindeer.
I love teaching! I have taught 13 years of Kindergarten, 4 years of first grade, 2 years of 6th grade (YUCK), Title 1 Reading, and now I am back in a Kindergarten classroom! Wooo Hooo! I have spent most of my time teaching in the inner city of Tampa, Florida and moved to West Virginia, where I am teaching in another inner city school. I wrote a book titled 101 Things Every Kindergartener Should Know About Phonics.
I also teach yoga, love to create anything (paint, refinish furniture, sew), am a mother to two wonderful boys (5 and 8) and a wife. I love to learn, so I am not sure what is on my list to do next!
