Hollywood Stars




So I stumbled upon http://www.teachersclubhouse.com/ this summer while preparing my classroom for a Hollywood theme.  These teachers do amazing work and I'm so appreciative of their documents. They are reasonably priced and it's a simple process to purchase there material. The following are a few pictures from my room thanks to their ideas and material.

Welcome!

I want to welcome you to the life inside my classroom.  This site was dedicated to the parents of the students in my room.  I hope to keep things updated on here for you as the year goes along.  I thought it would be neat to let kids do some guests posts as Journaling work so that parents may enjoy viewing their kids' work.  I don't know much about blogging to be perfectly honest but I'll learn as I go.  I really got inspired recently after looking through other teacher blogs like theteacherwife.blogspot.com. I hope you enjoy your time looking though here!
