Classroom Helpers and More Classroom Happenings

It has finally happened. I have caught  the dreaded cold and it only took two weeks of school! I had to miss our tubing trip with friends today because I felt like walking death. The only good thing to come of this is that I was restricted to my couch and computer and forced to do "schoolish" things. 

I finished my classroom ihelpers project that I have been working on for about a month, even though it's only like four pages long! HAHA I made it editable so you all could take it an use it in your classrooms. 

Just visit my either of my shops below to download.

Here is what else has been going on around my room this week!

Download the Boat Afloat and River Map printables by clicking each picture below!

And, I have a few new fonts in my side bar for you to download!

Gingersnap Thick Hand and Gingersnap Print. I also fixed the Gingersnap Handwriting font to make the punctuation flow better with the text. =)

Happy weekend!! I'll just be nursing my cold and willing it to go away by Monday! Ya

  2. Thanks! I snagged the boats experiment. It's something I've done before, but I like the idea of doing it to introduce the Scientific Method. Thanks for the freebie :)

  7. I totally hear you on the getting sick part! I was sick at the beginning of this week and I still sound like I have a frog in my throat. I had a couple of kids that were out sick this week too with colds..


  8. Love your aluminum boats experiment to teach scientific method. We made paper bridges and tested to see how many pennies they could hold up. The kids loved it! I think I'll do your experiment this week. Thanks for the idea
