The end is near...Are you ready?

If you are anything like me you like to have plans ready a few weeks in advance.  that being the case I have been busy preparing all sorts of goodies that will make that end of the year fun, a learning experience, and easy!  Each day for the next week I will post items and a freebie for you so be sure to check back.
This first packet focuses on the sweet theme of watermelon.  It is designed to meet the needs of balanced literacy, math, and science.  Most of the activities are perfect for math and literacy centers while others focus on whole group learning with indepent recall activities to follow.  And yes!  There is a craft that will be perfect for posting as well as colorful vocabulary cards.
As you know I never forget about you and I think you will love this freebie.

Get Ready for Earth Day!

April 22nd is Earth Day.  If you want to be prepared you will be interested in some of these goodies.
We begin with these cute kiddos that each student creates to hang on our locker.  I tell them the picture should look just like them.  It always amazes me how even the clothing is exactly what they are wearing.
And if you don't have these books in your library you will want to check them out!  
They are 3 of my favorites!!

We are completing our Earth Day packet this week because next week I am off to explore "how we change and grow" with Eric Carle.
The packet is filled with a weeks worth of activities such as informational text, vocabulary cards, and word work and writing for your literacy centers.  

 And my post would not be complete if there wasn't a FREEBIE FOR YOU!

It's Jelly Bean time!!

If you have not read this story by Laura Numeroff it is a MUST.  Your kiddos will love it and the activities that follow are loads of fun!  The best part is it is not too "Eastery" so ALL kiddos can enjoy it!

My Brave Year of Firsts...Crafts and Activities

Last day of Spring Break.
Wish I could turn back the "days of vacation".
After a long hard winter Ft. Lauderdale was amazing and best of all I got to spend it with my 3 boys.
So I am ending the vacation with a cute packet and freebie for all of you.
The packet is created around Jamie Lee Curtis and her story My Brave Year of Firsts.
I can't wait to spend a day exploring, creating, and learning.
