Toilet Paper Roll

For this resource challenge I painted three toilet paper rolls and one paper towel tube. I painted a rectangle foam board as well. I hot glued the tubes to the surface and they become supplies holder. The paper towel tube can hold longer supplies such as scissors or rulers.


For the first scavenger, I decided to make a cute clipboard. When I was younger I never saw a teacher without a clipboard especially those conduct clipboards where I got “N’s and U’s” for talking all the time. I figured it was a necessity for me now. I love floral, stripes, and gold so I put it together. I am not handy with mod podge as this was my first time to use it so as you can see, I need more practice.



Math Scavenger Hunt


I made a math sign out sheet on Microsoft Excel because will all the stuff students will be using it will be hard to keep up. Especially if students are grabbing things once they’re done without notifying you. The sign out sheet shows respect to the teacher and teaches responsibility to students to always write down date and time you signed out the activity or game board. I put it in a picture frame so the Expo marker can easily write and erase on it. Then I decorated the frame to be math related. IMG_6809

5E Instruction Model

The 5E instruction model was based upon, Jerome Bruner, John Dewey and David Kolb. Also, Roger Bybee contributed to it. The model shows the structure for constructivist learning theory. Constructivism is the concept that learners construct knowledge for themselves from current/past knowledge through experience and reflecting on experience.

The 5E model sequences learning experiences so that students have the opportunity to construct the understanding of the experience over time.
