Wordless Wednesday: Civil Rights

My students and I wrapped up a brief investigation about civil rights last week.  Below is one of the of the activities that my kiddos completed.
Did you talk about civil rights with your students?  If so what creative ways did you use to get your students to grasp a concept of equality?

Stay tuned for more about our civil rights research.  A freebie might be heading your way:)

Wordless Wednesday: Little Acts

So I am going to come clean with everyone.  I have a little budding Picasso at my house.  This is what my little guy brought home from preschool today.  He was very excited to show to pull it out of his folder and WOW me with it.  He is promising another one tomorrow.
Has anyone surprised you with any 
little gifts or little acts of kindness today?

Bonus Question:  Can you tell what my little guys favorite color is?

Wordless Wednesday: Displaying Student Work

I am fortunate this year to have many talented artists in my resource class.  I like to showcase their work by using IKEA frames and arrange it as I would art at home. 

How do you display student work?

Wordless Wednesday: Word Walls

I am linking up with the amazing Christina DeCarbo from 
Miss DeCarbo at Sugar and Spice for her Wordless Wednesday linky.  Feel free to join the fun.  It is super easy.  All you have to do is upload a picture from your classroom, home, or any other aspect of you life.  Then ask your readers a question related to the picture.

The question is my friends:  What does your word wall look like?

Currently January 2015!!!

I am attempting to start my blogging year off right with a post:)  I am hopeful that 2015 will be the year that I get back into the swing of the blogging world.  After moving states and getting a new teaching position and settling into a new life, I am hopeful that my life is settling down.  Finally!!!
I am linking up with Farley for her monthly Currently!!  HELLO 2015!!

Listening....yes I am that person who loves sappy Hallmark movies even though I know how the movie is going to end.  It is my guilty pleasure.

Loving....I am so thankful that I had two weeks off so that I could go back and visit my friends and family in Ohio.  It was great to spend time with the ones I love:)

Thinking....I have so much to get done both at home and school before school starts tomorrow! get everything unpacked before tomorrow.  Not. Sure. It. Will. Happen.  Too Many Christmas Toys..........

Needing....I need to start blogging again.  My life has been in chaos for so long with my husband getting a new job in Chicago when we lived in Ohio.  We are all living together now and adjusting to city life so I am hopeful that I will be able to get organized enough to blog again.

Yes...I hope to continue settling into my new home, life, and teaching position:)  I still have a few boxes to unpack and pictures to hang.

Maybe....  Create new products in 2015!!  I miss creating and have not made anything new since August.  I need to get my creation juices flowing again!!!

A Wish....I wish to FINALLY become organized in all aspects of my life.  I am not holding my breath that that will happen but a girl can dream right?

I hope that everyone has an awesome start back after break!!
