My New Clock

My freshmen will be getting the joyous task of learning how to tell time in Spanish I. It is one of the most challenging lessons due to having to learn tons of vocabulary. Not only do they have to learn vocabulary, but they have to do a little math....oh, that mean math..gggrr! I decided to make something fun that might be able to help them out some ;) 

We all know that high school students will be watching the clock like crazy through-out the class, so here's my Sunflower Spanish clock. Maybe after watching the clock everyday, this will start to catch on. This can be easily manipulated for teaching little kids to tell time or any foreign language. 

It's so easy to make the  flower clock. You just need card stock, scissors, a marker, some tape, and a round clock.

New Classroom Means a New Journey

Hello All!!!

I am so excited to start this blog. I love getting new ideas and sharing my own. I have moved to a new high school, not too far down the road, and I have a BRAND NEW classroom. I was so excited to get my new room but it needs some tender, love, and care. Here are the BEFORE pics: 

One of these bookshelves will be moved, thank goodness. There is a lot of space in the room but some things need to be moved out.

Here is the front of the room. It needs to be pretty if I want the students to pay attention to the board and the projector :)

This is my teacher's corner but it needs some spicing up and some color!!! 

Here is the larger space of my classroom. I love to do group activities so I will be putting the desks together in groups. They will stay like this for a while and I will switch them up later in the year. 

That's all for now :)
