Keyboard Printables - I seriously LOVE these! I found this pin over at Primarily Speaking and loved it so much that I already printed and laminated my own keyboards to use with my students at the "Word Work" center. It's ready to go for next week! I'm going to have their word wall words at the center and let them "type" the words on the keyboard. I plan to eventually have my students type their writing on the computer and I really think this will help them learn where the letters are on the keyboard.

Marshmallows and Toothpicks - Our 100th day of school should be this month. I have used marshmallows and toothpicks with my students before to build 2D and 3D shapes, but I've never thought to have them use them on the 100th day of school. The idea is to give groups 100 marshmallows and 100 toothpicks and see which group can build the tallest tower in a set amount of time. What a terrific STEM project to do for the 100th day of school! This idea can be found over at The First Grade Parade and she also has a ton of other fabulous 100th day of school activities!
