Happy New Year...I'm Back!

Happy New Year to all of my fellow educators out there.  I hope you had a relaxing christmas break.  I'm back and I'm excited to bring you a new announcement....I now have a store at Teacher's Notebook....YEAH!!!  You can visit my new store at.....

Please check back often.  I am adding new items to my store weekly (or trying to...you know how a teacher's schedule can be... ha ha ha!)

Before our break, my 1st graders completed a two week unit on Maps.  I concluded our unit with a map project.  I asked my students to choose a place, real or imaginary, and create a map it.  They needed to have a title at the top of their map, a map key with at least 3 things, it had to be neat and easy to understand, and they had to present their project to the class.  I was very proud of their results!  Here are some pictures of their projects....



As I mentioned above, I was very proud of them.  They were all able to present their maps to the class and tell all about them.  If you would like to pick up a copy of the parent letter for this project as well as the grading rubrics, click on the links below.




I want to send out a special hug to I Teach Stars for this wonderful freebie....

Here's wishing all of my fellow teachers a wonderful new year.  


Until Next Time.....
Amanda
