I've started picking a theme for each year. Last year was Superheroes, which went over really well with both boys and girls. Seriously, who doesn't want to be a superhero? With so many great cartoon movies coming out this summer, I had plenty of material to choose from. I chose Despicable Me 2 as my inspiration, although Monsters U came in a close second. There are so many images and memes on the internet that they are both easy to use. I will post pictures of my classroom later, as I was in meetings this whole week and haven't finished it. However, I discovered a great video site called Powtoon and created a video to review expectations with grades 1-5. This way I won't have to recite my expectations 32 times, I'll just get really sick of this video.
