A shared resource for all those helping to coordinate volunteer time in classrooms everywhere.
Welcome to Room Mom Central
School begins...and just as room moms in every classroom begin to plan a year's worth of classroom parties...I turned to the internet in search of resources, where I was inspired to create my own place for resources.
I am a teacher. I have been very fortunate to have had so many great parent volunteers throughout the years. I am also a room mom/classroom volunteer for my own child.
Please feel free to add your ideas...and comment on activities that have worked (or not worked) for you.

Planning a Party (minus the chaos)
Here are a few of the many ways in which you could organize your classroom party.
Rotating Stations: Length of time: 1 hour Rotate every 15 minutes, four times.
1. Craft 2. Game 3. Game or Craft 4. Snack time
Rotating Stations: Length of time: 1 hour Rotate every 15 minutes, three times.
1. Craft 2. Game 3. Game or Craft
The last 15 minutes: Snack time for everyone
I prefer this option, especially with younger children. This gives them time to eat, and also gives them somewhere to go if they finish a game/craft early.

Finally a new post!
I just want to apologize for not keeping up with the blog this school year. It's been a rough year. I was diagnosed with Leukemia in April 2012 and have been fighting for my life ever since. I am happy to report that I had a successful Bone Marrow Transplant September 18th. I am still in the hospital, but feeling much better. I am taking this year off to heal, but I promise to continue to find exciting and useful resources. Thanks for checking out my blog.
This website was created to share ideas collected from many, many sources in a general, easy to use format. I do my best to note the source of the idea...but even teachers make mistakes. If you notice something I missed, please let me know about it.
