I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to give you a huge update! I have been MIA the past few weeks an here is why...WE MOVED! Whoa moving with a baby is tough! I am a super productive person, ask any teacher or girlfriend of mine and they will tell you I get it done! Moving with a baby though... not so productive! It has taken me weeks to unpack, organize, and begin decorating. However, I am trying to tell myself to just relax and know that my to do list will most likely not be done by the the time I go to bed each night. Most importantly though, I am trying to just slow down, take a breath, and take in all these special moments and memories my family is creating in our new home.
We just finished our first DIY home reno! So I dream to be Joanna Gaines from the HGTV Fixer Upper. We didn't quite buy a 85K home that is falling to the ground and ready for Joanna's amazing flip... it is a livable home but we have a L-O-N-G list of things we would like to do to it to make it ours. The biggest reno on our list is to take down a wall between the kitchen and dinning room and then completely redo the kitchen but we are going to get more settled before the project starts.
|Here are a few signs that I found for our playroom!|
When displaying this bulletin board, I first start with just the banner across the top. As I introduce each region and tribe I add the large region headers to bulletin board. Along the left side, I also include the cards that describe what we will learn about each tribe (region, land, climate, tribe, homes, occupations, transportation, and contributions). The detailed cards about each region and tribe are then added as we work through this unit in social studies. I use Velcro on these 24 cards so students can take them down, shuffle them, and organize them back on the board in order to make this bulletin board more interactive. I also have a printable for the students that looks very similar to the large bulletin board so they can have their own visual to keep in their notebooks or do at home for homework.
I just added it to my store this week so you can check it out here if you teach American Indians in your grade level. I will be adding my American Indian task cards to my store soon!

I hope to get back on my blogging routine now that we are more settled in our new house, so I will see you soon!
