Well, we DID indeed survive the first week back after Spring Break. Even if it is testing week and we have a huge case of Spring Fever! Next stop is actually a long Easter weekend.. THEN it will be Summer Vacation.

I do truly like my job but what teacher does not count down to summer break!?!

           And speaking of free downloads- these frog patterns are free from Creekside Teacher Tales. We have been working on R blends this week so my first graders made their frogs and wrote R blends around them.

Easy peasy!

I LOVE the book Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse. I have had this book companion since 2012 in my store but it was WAAAAY overdue for a makeover. So, I gave it a little face lift and added a few things.

Lilly’s Plastic Purple Purse Makeover

Slide1

I adore the book Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes.

I have had this book companion in my store for a few years. But, when I was getting it prepped for my students to use next week I cringed at the way it looked. It was definitely time for a makeover.

So, if you have all ready purchased this resource from me.. you will need to redownload it to get the updates and the new look.

And, if you don’t own it and are interested.

Here is a peak of what is included…

{vocabulary, ABC order, true and false, nouns, verbs & adjectives, reading comprehension, sequencing and more!}

Just like most of the world.. we celebrated this famous cat this week.

IMG_1950

I make these super cute bookmarks for my students each year. I break The Cat in the Hat book into 4 parts so these are used all week as we read.

We also celebrated the beginning of a new month. I kinda like March. Even though my kids are a little nutso this time of the year.. they get me and know me. I don’t have to explain stuff. And, I get a little stressed about the thought of training another group next year.

These monthly cut and paste printables are included in my Months of the Year Unit.

Our school’s art program is pretty awesome. Our art teacher is a firm believer in letting them be creative in their own way. These are my student school winners and will be heading to a district art competition.

We’ve had some problems with greater than/less than. So, I pulled out some simple worksheets {gasp!} and we used these as morning work.

These printables are included in my Greater/Less Than Unit.

And, when the playground is muddy and you have small group time on the rug after recess.. you have to leave shoes in the hall. I am seriously surprised our afternoon cleaning lady has not quit this week. There is MUD everywhere!
