Leprechaun Pots

This is a fun and educational project for science (plants) and/or for Saint Patrick’s Day.  The milk carton covers come in a black & white version to color and in a full color version. They fit standard size lunchroom milk cartons.  Laminating the covers is not necessary, but is highly recommended.  Students can plant grass in their milk cartons and when it grows, the grass looks like their leprechauns’ green hair is growing! Then the students can give their leprechauns haircuts with their scissors. They LOVE it!

Let's do the Calendar!

Calendar Kit
You will find many useful items for a class calendar in this kit. It includes:

·        Calendar Pieces: Number boxes 1-31 and blanks in nine colors- blue, green, orange, pink, purple, red, turquoise, white and yellow. Use the different colors to make your own patterns.
·        A Clock and Hands: There are different hands (hour, minute and second) to choose from- thin, thick, and ones with labels.
·        Digital Time Box Pieces: Students write the time digitally, including the colon. It’s good for students to have to write the colon themselves, instead of having it printed.
·        Days of the Week Cards & Months Cards: Use them on your calendar and make extra sets for word wall words, flash cards or for center activities (students can practice putting them in order, spelling them, etc.).
·        Years Cards: Years 2013-2028 are included.
·        Tally Sheet
·        100 Grid: 11” x 17”
·        Time Poem: Two sizes- 8.5” x 11” and 11” x 17”

·        Money Sheet: Add a penny a day and put the final counts on this sheet

Desk Owls

There are 3 different stand up owls in this set. They can be used to decorate desks or any other flat surfaces in your classroom- bookshelves, tables- they even stand out on bulletin boards! The owls are especially cute around Valentine's Day (use the ones with hearts) or for the beginning of school, Open House or anytime for a fun project. I hope your students enjoy making them!

New Bee Alphabet

This is an alphabet, not a font. The alphabet pieces are png files. That means they are transparent images without backgrounds. You can place them on any other background. You can insert them into word processing documents, your newsletters, Power Point files, art programs, etc. to make titles, fancy letters for bulletin boards, or other items.

If you are a teacher, you may use the contents of this kit to create something to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers or Teachers Notebook as long as it’s used in an image that is flattened- a jpeg or a pdf file- and you do not sell the files in their original png format.  If you use the alphabet commercially, you must give me credit in your Terms of Use file:
Bee Alphabet by Johnson Creations:
No other commercial use is allowed.

Pin the Nose on Rudolph Class Party Game

“Pin the Nose on Rudolph”
 Class Party Game

1.           Print the Rudolph poster in color on 11” x 17” paper. Laminate it, if possible.
2.         Print the black and white noses if you want to save your colored ink. Each student can write their name on a nose, color it red, and cut it out.  Or you can print the red noses and have each student write their name on one and cut it out.
3.         Put a piece of rolled tape or sticky tack putty on the back of each nose.
4.         Play “Pin the Nose on Rudolph” just like you would play “Pin the Tail on the Donkey”. Each child is blindfolded, spun around a few times and then they stick their nose where they think it should go. No peeking allowed!
5.         The closest nose (or the farthest away!) is the winner.

Frog Themed Behavior Chart

Use this $2.50 chart to improve classroom behavior and encourage role model behavior. At the beginning of each day, all students’ pieces start on the “Ready to Learn” section. When you catch students making good choices (good behavior, helping others, etc.), tell them to move up a section. For behavior issues or children making poor choices, they move down a section at a time. Have predetermined consequences for the bottom 2 sections and discuss how the chart works with your class before you start to use it.
I give a small reward certificate (already printed and signed ahead of time) to students who are on “Role Model” at the end of the day. I included a sheet of these awards for you! Just print one copy, sign each of the four cards, then photocopy and cut them apart. Keep a stack on your desk. At the end of each day, just add the date and students’ names to the cards and give them to your role model students. Your students will love them and so will their parents! It’s a fast way to encourage and reward great behavior!
At the end of the day, a child has the job of putting all the pieces back on "Ready To Learn" for the next day.
I hope the chart works as well for your class as it has for mine!
