I have been updating my website portion of the blog again.  For those teachers / parents that wish to see what my day will look like next year, click here.  Each part of my day has an in-depth look on how things will happen.

On a completely unrelated note I just wanted to share with my fellow teachers a look at how I do holidays.  I know this is TOTALLY not at the right time to post this, but you can always look back on my side-links later.  Here is a look at how I did my Halloween party.  First we started off by having some yummy decorated Halloween themed cupcakes and punch.

Cupcakes

We then were able to get a hold of two pumpkins thanks to a TA traveling to Nome, AK (as you can imagine it is very difficult to get pumpkins up into Bush Alaska).  We separated the class into two groups and the TA’s guided the students in carving the pumpkins and gutting the pumpkins!

Then it was time to do our Halloween Centers!!  That’s right, those of you that regularly visit this blog / website, I love having centers!  We separated the class into three groups.  Each group was placed at a center and then rotated after a certain amount of time.  The centers were; paper plate masks, lollipop ghosts, and paper bag Halloween puppets.

Again a bit off season for this post but I thought it would be something cool for my fellow teachers to see and snag as ideas for next year!
