Show and Tell Tuesday - September

Ever since my former student, Reilly, came to visit my class and told them about creating books as a third grader, my students have been obsessed with writing their own books!  I had to create time for them to share them with each other. I love how excited they are to write! (By the way: this story is about superheroes looking for someone to join their super group.)

Today was Talk Like a Pirate Day!  We did a ton of fun (but educational) activities to celebrate.  Scoot was a hit!  The students traveled around the room answering pirate themed addition problems.  One girl said it was like we were going on a treasure hunt!

We have to have lock down shades for our door.  One teacher made curtains for her room a couple of years ago.  This summer, I found fabric that went well with my pirate theme and made my own!  It looks so much nicer than the ugly paper roll taped up to the window.  Check out all my pirate theme HERE.

Not going to lie - I have become a super anal teacher when it comes to organization.  My classroom is looking fabulous! One of my favorite ways to organize is their mailboxes.  I took large binder clips and labeled them with my label maker. My label maker has become my favorite toy!


  1. I love your curtain! I'd love to know how to make it... :)

  2. Thanks! It's nothing fancy since I only learned how to use a sewing machine last month! All I did just was fold a piece of fabric in half and sew the sides and the top and bottom. I put a dowel rod on command strips to hang it up. Super easy - since I was able to do it!

  3. Cute idea with the curtain! I'm right there with you about organization. Everything has to have its place! Thanks for linking up!
