The response for the swaps has been OVERWHELMING to say the least! I can hardly keep up with all the e-mails of awesome K teachers wanting to get in on our first swap! 🙂 Thanks for making it a success!! I hope to do another one in a few months…
For those of you who are thinking of joining in, I’ve changed several of the literacy activities to some new activities that are not as time/cost intensive. I felt like they weren’t being “filled” because of this, so I changed it up a bit. If you’d like to participate, let me know by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If there is enough interest, I might open up a second swap to accommodate more people. I’ll post about that if it happens. It will probably cover a different topic (science, or some specific math or literacy topic–shapes, 3D shapes, promethian board, capital/lower case letters, etc.). I am also thinking of doing a paint sample/chip specific swap–there are so many ideas out there! 🙂 I’d also love to do a surprise swap, where everyone picks a standard and creates a swap for it, but we don’t know what it is until we get them! 🙂
I could go on and on, but I’ll stop! 🙂
