Here are a few new additions to the classroom…
For our new “keyboard job”, students locate and type the day’s letter. We will work up to words and sentences.
Another new classroom job: making a word of the day bracelet to put on “the arm”. The kids adore this thing.
Because my class this year is called “The Cinnamon Group”, we now shake a jar of cinnamon sticks instead of ringing a bell at the beginning of class. (I threw a clear marble in there too for a more audible sound.)
And last but not least: hand sanitizer in a mayonnaise bottle (instead of my usual mustard bottle). Gotta keep things fresh… and germ-free… or at least less germy.
Bring on the new year!
