Living Lives of Loveliness Fairs

I'm hosting the first one, focusing on "Your Beginning School Year Traditions".

I'd like to receive all the submissions by Sunday, September 20. Then I can get the fair up on my blog Monday the 21st or Tuesday the 22nd at the latest.

You don't have to have a blog to do this - you can email your entry.

Remember....Your Beginning School Year matter when you start...

  1. Great idea Paula!

    My only tradition at this point is to take photos of the kids by the schoolroom door. I hang them up on the door with their name printed below. It's like a welcome sign to my students. We also do measurements on a height board I created (a 2x4 that can be removed if we ever moved). We review the chore cards that hang below the photos on the door. Afterwards we talk about the schoolroom, what's new, look through our books, etc. Of course we always begin with a prayer and the pledge before starting assignments.

    Lunchtime I breakout the lunch trays and a special meal which they love. Later we have a fun snack that has a school activity purpose, such as pretzel letters/#s stuck together with PB.

    Precautionary: I print on the back of the photo their info incase something happens to one of them and the police need a quick photo.

    Have a great school year! - Melissa
