Let me draw your attention to the huge banner to the left.
Not that you could miss it.
I recently created this banner because of the pride I wish to share in the projects that I create that are completely original. I always TRY to make projects that are original, but many times I end up 'surrendering' and referring to pinterest instead.
Pinterest is great, I love it, but I just love my original ideas better.
So I am extremely proud of this idea, because it is... ORIGINAL.
So the challenge for the day was to make something using a toy.
I devoted time to just think about toys that are out there and what I could do with them to create something that is useful in the classroom. For some reason (no, I don't remember the thought train) I began thinking about toy cars (e.g. Hot Wheels) and this idea really just popped into my head.
After the idea, I really had to work out details and figure out the exact idea I had in mind, as well as things that will make it most friendly for the classroom.
I worked really hard on coming up with this, and I think it truly deserves a banner in the corner.
Now, I've started the actual poster, but I still have quite a bit of laminating and gluing to do before it is complete, so I've done a quick paint sketch to show you what it looks like.
When I am done, I will post pictures and explain the idea more in-depth.
To summarize, the students move toy cars up or down the road depending on the behavior that they are showing for that day.
More to come!
