Mrs. Burns made us a gel board! There is so much we can do with our new board but today we started with letter formations and loved it!
How to make your own gel board:
You need one large bottle of any hair gel. I used Dap hair gel, it's inexpensive and colored so it's still fun for the kids! I used two freezer zip lock bags to ensure no leaks occur. I then duct taped the bag down to a board so it could be used on the laps of my students or could become mobile and used anywhere in the room. I used fun colored duct tape to help with its appeal. I added the alphabet line from Handwriting Without Tears at the top as a guide for the students. They write letters and drew anything they wanted. They loved it!
Our plants are growing! ( Click here to check out the original post to see when we planted our seeds). We have been taking good care of our sprouts by giving them plenty of sunlight and watering them every day!
...and even though Mrs. Burns takes care of her sprout the exact same way...her's is growing at its own pace...wompwomp... : )

Our school's own Ms. Leardi shares a birthday week with both us! We had to celebrate one last time together! Thank you for bringing the fun Ms. Leardi! We decorated cupcakes for ourselves and our moms too!
Don't worry! He didn't do it!
