    In Second Grade!

    I want this to be my bulletin board. I am going to have them decorate a T shirt with their favorite things on it. But I can seem to find anything for them to put on the T shirt. Any ideas??thanks!

    Were they going to paint or use fabric markers?

    You could have them print their handprints on them.

    I am doing "soaring into second grade" with an airplane theme. I think I will have my kids do a writing piece about their goals for the year and they will put it on clouds. I'm thinking maybe a 5 sentence paragraph for the goals and dreams.

    I'm doing the same thing!!!! I'm going to propose to my team to do it and the title to be "Look who's hanging out in 2nd grade" or "2nd grade likes to hang out". We are going to use it as an intro. thing. The students are going to draw some of their favorite things (food, hobby, color, etc.) and then decorate it like their fav. shirt and then we'll present to our class. I have string and bought clothes pins to hang them in the hall!

    I think Ill have them answer simple questions like

    Favorite food_____________
    Favorite color ____________



    Any other suggestions?


    I want them to do writing on the T shirt instead of just color pictures

    Let them pick their own color out for the T-shirt, and then have them do a short poem on each shirt.

    Some sort of form poem:

    I wish _________ "I could fly, ride a unicorn, go to the moon"
    I want _________ "peace in the world, to have a good year"
    I will _______ "do my best" "Try hard in school"
    I am ________ imaginative, creative, smart, etc.

    Help them by telling them the wish can be anything imaginary they wish they could do
    The want is a hope for the school year or the world
    I will is something they will do to make this a good school year
    and the I am is an adjective to describe their personality

    and have them fill in the blanks on a worksheet, then edit it and copy it onto the shirt in a final draft, best handwriting, spelling, etc.
