Making Colored Glitter

With the holiday season upon us I was in need of some glitter for my students art projects. Not being a fan of glitter we were out. So I found a recipe on Pinterest using salt and food coloring to make our own. This became a great science lesson for my students as we made it. I gave each student some salt in a bowl and put a few drops of food coloring in the salt. Students stirred and then poured the salt on a cookie sheet to cook for 10 minutes at 350 degrees and we had our own glitter! My students loved it. I liked the fact it cleans up nice with the only downfall being it's not as shiny, but the colors are beautiful!

Designated Seats!!!

This year my students had a hard time with staying in their seats and fighting over chairs. I decided to end the war and assign seats! To do this I went to Walmart and bought my colors of duct tape for each student. I then set forth to separate the table so every student had their own area. I then color coded the students chair so they knew which was their chair and where they needed to sit. When the tape starts to pill up I will change spots for each student while keeping their color the same. This has been great for my students to take ownership for cleaning up their area and taking care if their chair

A Color for Each Student!

A Color for Each Student!
With 8 students in my room I wanted to easily be able to give each student a color. My students have the same color for the entire year. From the first day of school I talk to students about what their color is and where it is used throughout the room in students' cubbies, agendas, work folders, chairs, table and all of my things for the students that I use for testing/ documentation. Color coding works really wonderful to teach students their colors especially for those that can't recognize their name.
