First, there is my fabulous assortment of paint chips!
I also got a little carried away with collecting bottle caps.
We will be sorting and learning with these as well. I have an amazing reading game planned. You will want to check back soon and see this!
Of course there are the obvious "treasures", such as cardboard tubes
and cardboard boxes. Please notice the Wii game box (my birthday present!).
But now, let me show you some of my greatest "treasures" . . .
Plastic fishing worms! Perfect for "W" week!
Feathers!!! I even have a hawk feather! Perfect for our study of not only birds but during "Q" week we can actually write with a QUILL!
But, I've saved the best until last . . .
I found this in a field at our lake house! I think it was used during a 4th of July celebration to shot off rockets. BUT LOOK AT IT! It is a ROUND CYLINDER and it has a SQUARE base! Can't you just see us dipping the square base in paint and smashing it onto some paper???? Oh, I'm getting chills!
I guess I better finish printing off some more notes to my parents, especially the one that says "WE GET MESSY!" I hope you stop by again in a couple of days. I hope to have pictures of my classroom up. We start school on September 1st!! YIPPPPEEEEE!
