I am a kindergarten teacher who loves my job! I teach in a Catholic School and enjoy using religion to teach values to my students. I truly believe in hands-on learning and believe that students learn and retain knowledge best when they take an active role in their education. Drawing, writing, cutting, gluing, anything that makes learning real is what I enjoy doing more than anything!
I am editing this post to link up with Kerri from Teacher Bits and Bobs who is hosting a linky party showcasing favorite bulletin boards. This has to be one of my favorites! I have given suggestions for using this in a non-Catholic school setting, too! Thanks Kerri!
First of all, I am going to share this really cute bulletin board our kindergarten team put up this afternoon. In our school, grade level teams sign up to decorate the main hall bulletin board. This is the board that visitors and our students see when they enter the school, so everyone tries to make it eye catching! Plus, the whole school concentrates on a monthly virtue and December is generosity. This bulletin board was REALLY easy! We have 52 kindergartners in our school so each child colored a star with crayons. We attached their picture to the center of the star. This bulletin board could easily be adapted to a non-Catholic school by changing the center picture to a Christmas gift and making a slight change to the words which would be: THE GREATEST GIFTS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES.
Second, my friends over at Blog Hoppin are hosting a HUGE giveaway! Over 30 units will be given away to 2 lucky winners. I, myself, feel humbled to even be on the same page as some as these awesome ladies! Click the image above to enter!!
