My Kindergarten Class Needs Your Help

I would love any help in getting my donors choose project funded for a new short throw projector.  Currently our projector sits on a low cart and is very dim.  I was fortunate to have a Smartboard donated to our classroom, but unable to fully utilize it due to the ineffective equipment.  If anyone can help, my kinders and I would greatly appreciate it.

Here's the link to our project  Our 21st Century Projector

Thanks again for your help...
xoxo, Julie

Our First Directed Drawings and It's November Currently Time

Halloween was a wet one for us here in Hawaii.  Our school had a parade for the students in grades preK to 3rd in the morning.  My kinders came to school dressed in their Halloween costumes and we walked along the fire lane for our parents and upper elementary students (grades 4-6).  We made it one time around before we got drenched!!  Other than that, we did have fun showing off our costumes.

I followed the Fall Favorites Blog Hop and came across Elyse Rycroft from Proud to Be Primary.  She had the cutest directed drawing of Frankenstein...which she called "Franken-Buddies."  I love directed drawings and I am always impressed with my students' work.  Even my most reluctant artists are able to complete one and are very proud of what they have created.  Stop by her blog and pick up her easy to follow directions for a great art activity.

It's time for Farley's November Currently...head down to her blog to join in on the fun!

Listening:  Law and Order: SVU.  It a favorite of mines and I'm watching the reruns on USA Network.

Loving:  It's been really hot and humid lately in Hawaii and I'm happy that it's cooling off here.  I also love my students first directed drawing of Frankstein that we did for Halloween.

Thinking:  Christmas is 7 weeks away...How fast it's approaching and things I have to get do and get ready for.

Wanting:  The cooler weather to stick's not fun teaching in a portable with temperatures reaching 90 degrees with only the windows open and ceiling fans to try and cool us off.

Needing:  I signed up for a 3 credit course about our new Language Arts Program:  Wonders.  It's due soon and I have to get moving on finishing everything up, but I will be out this week for a 2 day conference.  Not great time management and planning on my part :(

Reading:  We are moving along with our new program...lots of bumps and road blocks along the way, but it's been nice to see my kinders understanding the different concepts.  Currently trying to plan out the next couple weeks which is why I am reading Unit 4.  2 more weeks to go.

Happy November...xoxo,
