I started prepping for some school projects today. Last week, one of my OU girls brought me a laundry basket full of drift wood. (Thanks, Holly!) It has inspired me to add more natural elements to my classroom. I picked up some river rocks from the Dollar Tree to create a rock alphabet.
I saw the idea on Sally Fowler-Haughey's blog, Fairy Dust Teaching. (If you do not subscribe to follow Sally's blog, do it! It is located at http://fairydustteacher.blogspot.com.) This is the picture from her blog. I will post my own pics when I make them next week.
I hope her blog inspires you as much as it inspires me!
