I was looking through the projects that we have made this year and it brought up some great memories! I then thought about how I would like to see everyone’s favorite projects for the year to get some inspiration for next year, so I thought of creating a linky of all our great projects of 2012-2013.
So please link up your post with your top 5 favorite projects 🙂
1. Mother’s Day Mason Jars
We most recently made these Mother’s Day Mason Jars. I found this craft online and it looked perfect for us. The original idea is to paint the inside of the jar, but I didn’t have enough paint on hand, so we tissue papered the inside and created a bouquet for our moms. They turned out incredible and the moms loved their flowers
2. Owl-ways Remember
I created this project to recap our memories of the year. We had so much fun discussing everything we had learned and what we had done throughout the year. These owls made such a cute display too!
3. Leprechauns/Pots of Gold
Mrs. Cupcake made these CUTE leprechauns and my kids had so much fun making them. Everytime I looked at them, I just had to smile. The pots of gold from The Teacher Wife were a perfect addition to this craft. The things the kids wrote were so sweet!
4. 100 Year Old Portraits
I saw these portraits via Pinterest and I was in love! We had to make them! After some tracking down I found that they were created by Deanna Jump. These are too cute for words.
5. Parts of a Friendly Letter Foldable
This wasn’t exactly a project but it was one of the most useful reference tools we made all year. My students write letters each week in one of their centers and we write letters for our Donors Choose grants often and my kids always pull out this foldable to help them write their letters. I never knew a foldable could be so helpful! You can find it in the Friendly Letter Unit from The Teacher’s Clubhouse also known as Teaching Maddeness.
