I'm having a Red, White and Black Patriotic Classroom this year!

As some of you may already know, I am from Trinidad and Tobago... (Where's that? North-east from Venezuela, at the base of the Lesser Antilles archipelago. It's two islands but one country). Well, this just so happens to be a big year for us. On August 31st, we celebrated our 50th year of Independence - Our Golden Anniversary. This inspired me to have patriotic theme in my classroom. I want everything to be red, white and black - our national colors.

I just started to decorate on Thursday and I will be posting pictures as I go along... so stay tuned!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
