I will be Periscoping this Wednesday (5/23/16) at about 3 p.m. MST (2 p.m. PST). I will go over how I was able to get complete funding from my school PTA. I am a bit on the shy side when it comes to presenting and am usually the last one to volunteer to get up in front of large groups. So, this was a big feat for me. I will talk about what I did to get over that (for a day). I will answer questions anyone might have about the presentation and funding.
Join me on my Periscope channel-
Hope you can drop in and listen!

We had a super fun Spy Day in 1st grade. My co-workers joined in on the craziness that I suggested.
One of my friends taught ELA with a spy twist. The kids who needed support worked on sneaky e words and those who are independent worked on spy sentence scramblers by Tales and Teacherisms.
My other teacher buddy taught math with a spy twist. She used the powerpoint bundle from The Primary Techie, below to do some really fun math facts, spy exercises, and she thought of incorporating money work with the math facts. They created spy/glow glasses during their work. I got those on Amazon. See below.
They were great forensic scientists. We also learned how to take and identify fingerprints. I used my own creations...which I don't have on TpT. Maybe this summer...maybe. I am not good at doing that. I'm really good at buying TpT stuff, ha!
I decorated the room with "lasers" made of white yarn, a black light, glow in the dark balloons with led lights in them, and black trash bag tablecloths.
We also had glow sticks and finger lights.
All 3 of us had spy like clothes on. I totally forgot a pic of that. :(I was inspired by Hope King's ideas. I did not create this concept but I did "first grade-afy" it.
I am super excited to go to RCA and maybe talk with Hope King... it is only 2 and a half weeks before I get there!!! I can't wait! I will blog like crazy about that adventure!
Have a great weekend.
