Non-Fiction Writing

Last week we were working on Non-Fiction writing. I read the kids a short book about Tree Frogs. Then we made a thinking map about what we had learned. (which I totally forgot to take a picture of...oops!)We started with the title page of our books.
Then we created 3 pages for our book. 1. Tree Frogs live in the jungle. 2. Tree Frogs have sticky feet to climb trees. 3. Tree Frogs eat bugs. The kids told me what to write. I wrote it , and they copied.
The kids loved creating these books so much that this week we are working on a new one (Ladybugs). This time they are writing everything on their own.

Moving Again....

So Right before school is out I will be moving classrooms yet again for the third time this year. This move won't be so bad since most of my stuff is still in boxes from the last move around spring break. Organization is one of my "problem areas" So since I will be moving again I plan to do it right this time. So here is what I am thinking...
I want to buy a couple of these babies and those bins that fit into them to store centers in my classroom. I think the children will have easy access to them as well ....anybody have any thoughts on this? Am I making things complicated or should I just stick with those plastic drawers?
