Palm Tree Directions

I'm working on answering the questions that I've been asked.  Several of you have asked how I make the palm trees that are in my room.  If you click on the picture you can download the directions.  I have to say that they are SUPER easy to make and I Love how they look in my room.  In this tree you will notice our friend Stretchy the snake.  He watches the kids during Reader's and Writer's Workshop to make sure they are sssssssstretching their words!  :)

You can take a tour of my classroom by clicking HERE.

  2. wow!! love your room- it looks like it is huge and you have so much storage! Our district is very strict with paper rules and fire rules- my room is so bare compared to yours! I wish we could make it homey...

    Thank you!

  5. Mrs.Jump,

    You are one of the most amazing teachers I have ever seen! I appreciate how much you share and all the wonderful units I have bought on TPT! I think you are such a wonderful person and I was so touched by your story about how you spent your earnings from TPT! I was very saddened to hear that a cyber bully has made you feel bad! You are a blessing to those of us who aren't creative but want to do wonderful things for our students! Plesae know that you have a gift from God and you are using it in the best way possible! My students and I thank you!

  6. I love those awesome shelves with all the cubbies and dividers for construction paper! Even if it is small it looks like you've made great use of the space.

  11. Hi Deanna!
    I hope you are able to have an enjoyable summer with your family! Thanks for your wonderful pictures and ideas! I love your classrooms. One question for you- the spelling charts that are on your cabinet-are they copied and the put on cardstock for background color? I know you said that you introduce the spelling pattern and then post it on the cupboard doors.
    Again, thanks so much and looking forward to seeing new ideas on TPT!
    Take care,
    Maryann

  14. Wow! Just wow! I am BEYOND jealous of both of those classrooms. I can't believe you think the first one is small!!!! The loft is just amazing. Was that in the classroom when you moved in or did you build it? Wow! Wow! Wow!

  15. Great class pics! Your classroom looks HUGE! Especially with the loft! Wow! You should see my classroom - I am glad that I can fit four tables in it! Ha ha! Anyways, thanks so much for sharing the tree idea. I had it downloaded from your website already and it's on my (okay, my husband's!) to-do list!

  16. Deanna,
    I absolutely love ALL you do! I have looked at your classroom pictures a million times. Have you ever shared your alphabet letters from your Florida classroom? I love them, want them, NEED them:)
    Thanks for all you do!

  17. Oh, man ... I am so mad at myself! A friend insisted that I throw away my broken umbrella that would have been PERFECT to make a tree! I knew I should have held onto it!!! (... obviously, my friend is not a teacher and doesn't understand that we have to hang onto everything because someday we will figure out a use for them all.)

  19. Mrs. Jump,

    I noticed in your classroom photos two very cute poems, "Rainbow Hair", and "Elephant." I do a poetry notebook and poetry center with my children and I would love to add these poems. Did you make up these poems or did you get them from a particular book? Thank you so much in advance!!

  20. Mrs. Jump,
    Since you are so awesome and are all about answering the questions lately I was wondering if you could let us know how you do your workstations or centers? I would love to revamp mine this year and am curious as to how you do yours....
    Also do you have an email address?

  21. We waste so much of that brown packing paper that comes in our supply shipment boxes. I have used it as "jungle vines" and as a 3D tree on a bulletin board, but I love how you turned it into a palm tree!

  22. Hi! I am a terrible insomniac and I decided to troll around on the computer. Imagine how charmed I was to find your page! I am also a first grade teacher in Mobile, Alabama. I have been teaching since 1990 (I did take 7 years off to have 2 children) and am ready to redesign my classroom. What a creative person you are-I can not throw anything away, however, I don't need to be on a reality hoarding show! ;) Thank you for the inspiration and have a wonderful year! Kathryn
