The 2012/2013 school year is almost here (T minus 3 days) and I feel like I need another month to actually be ready for my students. I worked in my classroom until 7 pm then made a point to stop at Home Depot tonight to pick up some paint swatches for a quick project to do at home.
I have 7 tables so I picked up 7 swatches.
I cut down the white stripes on each swatch so that I had 4 separate strips of each color.
I am now ready to form my groups on the first day of school! Each student will pick a color as they walk in the door and sit with students in the same color family. Such a simple way to switch up the groups when you need a quick change!
This idea came from a Pin on Pinterest but I can't seem to find it to give credit to the savvy teacher who came up with this idea. I can at least thank Pinterest for providing me a hundred different projects that I have on my "will create someday" list!
I hope everyone has had or will have a wonderful start to the new school year!
