Kinder Fun Starts Now!

Mother's Day Credit Card Making:


I told my students that my portable laminator was a credit card machine.  They were in awe.  It was all they could talk about the entire day.  "Did you know Ms. Chako has a credit card MACHINE!?!"  I WISH!!! 


Some fronts and backs of the cards.  After they were laminated (I mean turned in to credit cards) we practiced how mom would swipe the card.  My students can't wait to give them to their mom so she can keep the card in her wallet. 


If you are looking for Mother's Day ideas visit my TPT store and check out my Mother's Day Bundle.  Click HERE!

Saw this at the Hallmark store.  Love!

Open House is around the corner!  Yikes! We made jazzy covers for our science journals:






I love Deanna Jump's 'What Do Scientists Do?'  freebie so I stapled it to the inside cover of each child's science folder.  The covers of the 'Wood and Paper' and 'My Tree Journal' were designed by the fabulous Camille at An Open Door.  Did I mention Camille is my teaching partner?  She is fabulous and I am very lucky to have her on my team.  (hugs Camille!!)






You can find this science journal cover craftivity for FREE in my TPT store! 


Writing Binder Covers:


You can find this writing binder cover for FREE in my TPT store! 


Subway Art Covers for our end of the year Memory Book binders!
 Students wrote their names in special colors nice and big and fancy above the banner!



You can find this end of the year subway art for FREE in my TPT store.

Click HERE!

I would be happy to do custom orders of this subway art for your classroom! Let me know the specific words you would like displayed, and the grade you teach and you will have a personalized piece of subway art JUST FOR YOUR CLASS! $5!!!!
