Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

One of the Best Creativity Lessons I Have Ever Done! {Giveaway}

Teachers and kids alike enjoyed this lesson. First I had students tell me about a time they made a mind picture from something such as weird wallpaper or clouds after looking at them. Then I read them the book Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg. This book has multiple pictures where “mistakes” have been turned into something beautiful. See below…

For example, torn paper is turned into a dog.

Holes are turned into a camera like figure that children can look through. With each new page, there is something new to explore.

For the lesson, I use the different ideas from the book and put them on paper. For example, I put random paint on paper, random tears on paper, holes in paper, folds in the paper, and glued pieces of tissue to paper. See below…

I got these ideas from my fabulous colleague! She’s the best!

So I make a class set of various ones of the beautiful oops papers and then I give them to students to make the beautiful oops into something else. If they are able to turn it into something wonderful, I am pleased!

Have You Filled a Bucket Lesson Fun! {Giveaway}

One of my friends calls it punting when you come up with a lesson at the last minute that turns out better than one you spent hours planning. Now, I did have a ready to go lesson and was ready to teach it when I thought this idea would be so much better. In a school where I have difficulty with the students treating one another with kindness, this idea seemed perfect. I used the idea from Have You Filled a Bucket Today? for this lesson, but I never actually got around to reading the book.

Here is what I did. I brought a bucket of sorts which actually was a Dollar Tree gift box and it was filled with red die cut hearts and puff balls. I gathered the students in a circle and threw out puffballs one at a time while saying things that kids say to one another that are hurtful. For example, “you’re ugly, your breath stinks, you’re wearing cheap shoes, no one likes you, you can’t play kickball” etc. Every time I would say an ugly comment I would drop a puffball or heart on the floor. Then I showed the kids how the box is like your heart and it is like you are hurting someone when you say mean things to them.

Next, I gave each child a puffball in the circle and had them think of something nice to say about someone else in the circle. I started so that the students had an example to follow. Then as they said a nice comment about someone, I let them put the puffball back in the box. Then at the end I let the kids see how the box was filled up because they said nice things about one another.

Note: It is hard to get young children to say something nice about someone that isn’t about their physical appearance, so this requires modeling or else the children will say that johnny has a nice shirt or that they like someone’s hair. After we sat on the carpet and did all of this I had the children write something on a paper heart that they would say nice about someone else. Then I collected all of the hearts and made a bucket to post on the wall so that the children could be reminded of what we had talked about.

Are You Having Girl Drama In Your Class? Try This!

About this time of year, it seems the girl drama erupts. The winter time has set in and it seems none of your students can stand each other. A lot of times this begins with someone saying something about someone else and then no one thinks they are liked. Or it may start with a pointing finger. He did ____ or she did _____. There is always blame. Discontent ensues and no one likes one another. I have used this quote to help students get past this mindset and it works as long as the ideas are fresh in their minds. In other words they will need reminding of this…

No one wants a small mind and so this quote gives students a lot to think about and makes them act the right way. When you hear them discussing people, you can just remind them to not have a small mind. :).

Here is a printable for your classroom.

Subtraction Flash Cards Like You Have Never Used Them…

I remember teaching subtraction before I learned the strategies to teach with. I used to tell kids to “learn all your 1’s, then learn all your 2’s, and then your 3’s etc., but it really seemed that many of the kids stayed on the same subtraction facts for a long time and never learned them. As a result, I made this packet of flashcards but with strategies attached so that children could have a pattern to which to attach their learning. If our minds can find a pattern then it is much easier to learn something and remember it. These also have printable backs to make your life easier!


There are suggestions for how to use them and place them so that patterns are easier to learn. For example, see below…

Here is the tried and true think addition strategy that everyone knows…

How about subtracting 9…what a doozy for many kids! This strategy helps you think of using 10 as a helper in subtraction to get the answers for subtracting 9.

I have included a chart with 16 different ways to group subtraction facts for teaching patterns. All of your students may not need all 16 ways and many of the strategies repeat facts so that students have multiple ways to think of getting the answer if they need them.

Take a moment to stop by TPT and view the preview.
