Out the Window I Can See...

Next year I'm moving into a room with a window. I'm so excited to be able to look out the window any time.  There are benefits to NOT having a window. I imagine that it is a cloudy rainy day and so I don't mind being stuck inside. We read the "Goodbye Hello Window" last week and decided we needed some windows in our classroom. Why not make our own? We brainstormed about all the things we would want to see if we could see anything at all when opening our curtains. We drew our pictures and then wrote about what was outside. The responses were quite eclectic! I found this one to be the very sweetest...
Wouldn't you love having your child write about how pretty, smart and talented
you are? His mom is quite special!

that looked out over the ice!

South Africa, anyone? Or maybe...

Paris in the spring!
Tonight when I looked out the window I saw this...
Does this have an effect on your students?

  3. I'm glad you're getting a window. I can't imagine being in a room without some.
    Your writing/art activity is very cute and clever!

  4. You will need to put some bird attractions outside your windows....well maybe not seeing as how distracting they can be!
