You can tell that grades are close to being due based on all the creative challenges and tasks that I have taken it upon myself to start and finish this week. I would just rather make another center or create a helpful poster on attachment practices than assign grades to a second graders hard work. But that's part of my job so I will ... but not before I hang full length mirrors underneath my dry erase board to students can watch themselves building strange and creative structures out of the scavenged blocks from 4 different thrift stores I found over the weekend.
Below is one of those projects that I found myself tackling. I stamped out a prompt on a legal size of paper to kick start creative writing and or creative illustrations. They now live in my Drawing Center as another option for kids to play with during Centers. I also copied off a few how to draw penguin sheets for those particularly reluctant students.
A few of my more timid starters seemed to enjoy having a starting point. I'm excited to see what kids do with them.

Thanks, and sorry for the runaround.
sWhat about you all? What do you do in those desperate emergency situations that you literally have to pick and leave within 10 minutes?
