The kids cut out hearts of varying sizes and glued them together.

The kids loved making stained glass hearts with wax paper, squares of tissue paper and watered down glue.

Fab Finds Linky and February Currently.

Hi everyone! First off, I want to thank the ladies at Honey Bunch Blog Design for our cute and awesome, 2 column look! I love it!

Secondly, I am linking up with Christy and Tammy from Fluttering through First Grade for their linky party!

My School Find

This isn't really a recent find for me, but it is one of my favorite finds of all time. I don't know what we would do without this for hanging things on our brick walls at school. I buy it 2 or 3 packs at a time at Wal Mart.

My Home Find

I found this nail polish over the Christmas break. I love the fact that it is base coat, color and top coat all in one! I hate all of the individual steps.

And here is my February Currently. I am linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade.

Utah Symbols Booklet

I have been blessed with the opportunity to mentor a student teacher this semester which is giving me some time to really look at the Utah core and make sure that I am teaching what I should.

I am embarrassed to admit that I have missed the boat on explicitly teaching any Utah symbols. I always mentioned them when we talked about US symbols, but that isn't good enough. I quickly discovered there isn't a lot of ready made materials so specific for our state (I even begged info from our 4th grade teachers!). So, I spent a good part of my "free" time working on putting together something that I thought I would share.

I created a smart notebook file that looks at the symbols on the Utah state flag. Then to go along with that file I created a "coloring" book for the kids to create a book of their own state symbols.

I still have some tweaking to do on the smart notebook file, but I am willing to share it just send me an email and I will send it on. Here is a copy of the coloring book for you to use with your kids.


Awwww. . . . .

It's a rough life, but somebody has to do it . . .
