I to teach using hands-on manipulatives, so I’m always creating stuff for my students. I’m a bit of a craftster as well. I started creating the resources I use in the classroom within the first year that I started teaching, back then, I had a Grade 1 class. Since then I have taught at all of the other grade levels in the primary school system. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Primary Education and three young ones to keep me busy at home.
Making centers is now my hobby. I'm addicted and my students couldn't be happier! Teaching allows be to get wild and creative with my ideas. And I'm really happy to do any thing that allows me to be creative. It feels 'right', like its what I was born to do! Sometimes I get so caught up in what I'm doing that I completely loose track of time! So I guess I need to keep a timer on me! My students don't mind though, sometims we cut into the recess time or lunch time. And I always appreciate their help with the gluing and sticking.
I created my blog recently, Nyla's Crafty Teaching, to share my classroom with the world. I like to blog about my teaching, my class and new ideas that I think are workable for any teacher. I've got lots of great freebies there too! Here's a little video about my Blog...
