Show and Tell Wednesday

I'm excited to announce that I am starting a new link up. It is called Show and Tell Wednesday. Every Wednesday I will be hosting a linky party. This is a place where you can share anything you would like. All you have to do is write a blog post about something you would like to share and tell us about it. It can be something from your TPT store, an activity that you did in your class, or anything else school/teaching related. I always love learning new things from fellow teachers and I'm always searching for new ideas.

Here are a few rules for the link up.
  • Become a follower of my blog. This is not necessary, but occasionally I will be doing giveaways and in order to be considered for the giveaway, you must be a follower. Also, you don't want to miss anything in the future! :-)
  • Add the Show and Tell button on your blog post that you link up.
  • Visit the person before your link and leave them some thoughtful feedback.
  • Have fun!!!!
 Here is my show and tell for the week.

School is in full swing and we are having a lot of fun in my class. I love my kids and I couldn't ask for a better class. We are starting our camping unit and this is by far one of my favorite units all year. We started out by writing directions for making s'mores.

We started with an anchor chart, but unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it. After that the students worked on creating their directions on their own. I found an amazing and FREE file HERE. That was so generous of her to offer that amazing file for free. All of the activities you will see in this post are from her file.

Here's the final product, along with a bulletin board. I was going to create a title for it on my Cricut, but I have yet to do that.

I'm going to be surprising my students on Friday. Friday will be our camping themed day. I let my students bring in flashlights and instead of doing free time for Fun Friday they get to read in the dark with their flashlights. We will also be making s'mores that they can eat. I will take pictures and I might share them on my blog this weekend.

This week on Show and Tell Wednesday is exciting because I am having a giveaway. Scholastic Teacher Express is an amazing place to get some really great teaching resources. I am giving away my favorite two resources to one lucky winner. Since Show and Tell Wednesday is a new link up, I am asking you to help me spread the word.
