Have you heard about the broom trick? I wanted to post you a picture, but alas, my camera is still not working. I had a co-worker take a picture, but we forgot to get it to me before the end of the day. Anyway, it is possible to stand a broom up. Part of the people I've discussed it with says that it's a gravitational thing from now until March 21st. However, naysayers tell me it can be done at anytime of the year. In the meantime, try it out for yourself. Any old broom will work. I did it with my students this morning and it was still standing when I left this afternoon. No matter what the explanation, it's a lot of fun to do with your students!
I posted my newest unit on TPT. It's a 47-page unit full of games, literacy station activities, worksheets, task cards, and Common Core Standards for 1st and 2nd grade. Go check it out here
One last thing for tonight...I've been given a blogging award! Thanks to Mrs. Stapler over at Stapler's Strategies for giving this to me!
Five months ago this award was created to encourage teachers who blog.
Since that time, there have been MANY new bloggers who deserve some high fives from the blogging community.
