I had a mini panic this morning about not being able to get everything done, especially blogging. I think I am going to designate time on Sundays, bang out 7 posts, and set them to post by them selves! UNLESS I have something super important to tell you...Like right now!
That is right folks.
The September sign ups for the SLANT BOX exchange have opened! I had a ton of fun getting to know my partners and as I am getting ready to send out my box to my partner I am thrilled to share with you the theme for the month of SEPTEMBER.
BUT FIRST... I want to share how I came up with it...and the rest of the themes for the upcoming months (they are by no means final). As you know there is a question on the form you fill out for suggestions, the theme for September won fair and flipping square! I had almost 25 people suggest it so I went with it....here it goes.....
OH MY GOD I FORGOT (blank)
Basically the idea is to get to know your partners classroom or philosophy of teaching. Then create, find, dream up some goodies to fit right in, perhaps something they could not have got because of location, or time. Maybe it is a super cute coffee mug in the shape of a hooting owl, or a chevron covered stylus pen, or a lanyard that is super sparkly! Or perhaps it is a book on differentiation that you could not teach with out! If you do not have a classroom because you are a teacher candidate, sub, on a cart, coach, or an administrator don't worry. You are still welcome to join. Think about things that you might have forgotten to prepare for in your current position. The idea behind me choosing this theme was that it did not seem like it would be to hard to come up with items, especially with it being many of our first weeks back to school. If you do not have a blog, make sure you show your partner pictures of your room in social media or through email!
Now I know that many of us are posting some awesome before and after pictures of our classrooms so I can not wait to see what y'all are going to come up with.
There will be some new rules with the matchings so be on the look out for those.
HERE IS THE SIGN UP!!!!! Same rules there. You have till the 3rd of the month. You can always use the tab at the top of my blog too. PLEASE tell your friends let's see if we can beat the number that signed up last month. ALSO, EVERYONE who is involved in education is invited to join. I mean that sincerely.
Have fun, See you around the SLANT BOX world!
I need to go to bed now~
