Helping Hands & Grandparent's Day craft

This last Thursday we had Open House at my school.  Usually we have it the week before school starts, but with our schedules this year we had it after school started.  Each year I always do a "Helping Hands" where students can pick up a hand of an item they'd like to bring.  I had all but 2 hands taken and lots of supplies already brought in!
We always have a Grandparent's Day celebration {more on that later} so we have been working on the crafts this week!  Handprint/footprint flowers!  They are SO cute!
My to-do list is ever-growing and the new Reading textbook series is a totally new way of teaching/thinking, which is a tad over-whelming! But, I did get this cabinet installed today!  Woohoo!  Now, to move all the materials into it and make room for more books!

  1. I love the Helping Hands idea. It is such a nice variation of The Giving Tree. I've pinned it so I don't forget. I think I might put this out at conferences since I already missed Meet the Teacher. I know we'll be out of glue by then. :)
