A Digital Party for Cindy
Cindy is the owner of a wonderful blog that is my "go to" place when I need a bit of tech help (she's not even a geek) and for other great classroom ideas. Her birthday is this week so I had to grab some ingredients and cook up some great ideas. I am still focused on the beginning of the year so I am offering this little reader that is a class favorite. The kids never, ever get tired of it. Simple text, simple graphics, and it provides an opportunity to practice name writing which EVERYONE needs help with ( unless you went to private preschool and you are almost six). When they show me their name proudly in all capitals, I have to bite my tongue (ouch) and just accept the fact that it might be a long year! LOL. Click on her picture to check out her blog. You'll thank me.
Another oldie but goodie is to put the birthday song in a pocket chart, substituting different names of students in the class. Every five year old loves a party! What traditions do you have in your classroom? Leave a comment if you are in a party mood. Happy Birthday Cindy! Grab your gift Grab your gift right here and eat a cupcake in Cindy's honor. I fixed this link and it should work. I am so sorry.
