I know many of you have probably seen or used this before, it's Magic Confetti! It's a really cute idea for K,1st, or even 2nd grade. I've seen teachers tweak it just a bit and turn it into a snack for the upper grades. You simply attach the adorable poem to a cellophane bag or any clear baggie, filled with confetti. It is perfect to give out at Meet & Greet night before school starts. It's a way to ease and calm the fears of those little ones the night before school. My theme is nautical, but I thought, why not create a few with some different themes. So, here are a few samples with a Pirate theme, Ocean/Beach theme, and a basic Back to School theme. Enjoy!
I'm entering my 20th year as an educator, 14 of which have been with 1st grade. I have taught Kindergarten, 4th, 7th, and 8th grades. First Grade, however, is my true love! Those little "crumb snatchers" melt my heart and crack me up almost every day! I love their "on the brain, out the mouth" kind of honesty. I love their authentic way of looking at things in such an innocent way. Their curiosity never ceases to amaze me. First graders are exactly like the cliche "little sponges". They literally soak up every bit of knowledge you feed their little minds! I'm married to an awesome husband of almost 8 years and we are anxiously awaiting to add a little one to our family through the miracle of adoption.
