I'm Going Green...... what about u?

To help save a tree or two or three, I'm gonna try and go green. How? Well I'm gonna have to use some paper, but it will be recycled. I bought a class set of these babies from Lakeshore.

Reusable Write & Wipe Pocket
These are the reusable write and wipe pockets. In centers, students will have these. I will check their work, record their grade, and pass it on to the next group. If you haven't any, you should try them. They work for any grade. My nephew, who is 4, uses it to practice number and letter formation.

Earth Day Linky Party

Need some cute ideas for Earth Day. We will celebrate all next week. I will post some cool Earth Day books. Denise over @ Sunny Days in Second Grade is having an Earth Day Linky party. Hop on over to get some great freebies and wonderful ideas from fellow teachers in blog land. I added my freebies just in case you didn't get them already.

Patches the Dairy Cow

This week we received a visit from Patches, the Dairy Cow. I forgot she was coming and pictures to share. She was soo cute. Patches has only one ear and is 5 years old. She kept looking at the kids and was probably wondering why they were looking at her. Ms. Nicole, the farmer asked the kids to say hello to Patches and when they did, she gave off a loud MOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! In honor of her visit, I created some activities that our teachers could use to expand their kids learning of dairy cows and cows in general. Trivia cards,  writing sheets, graphic organizers, as well as a cow pattern are included. Here is a preview. If you would like a copy, leave a comment. Tomorrow I will put it on TPT for only $1.50. Be Blessed

Its about a little bunny that finds out how yummy chocolate cake is. I will upload some freebies to use with this book soon.

Hi All!

Just Relaxing!

It's Spring Break! So excited to spend some quality time with my DD and DH. Haven't done much. I just need to relax. I have been workin' so hard lately, that I decided to not do anything. My DD and I did Cricut some dinosaurs and bugs. If you don't have a cricut, you should get one. Here is what I did:
Here is what she did. The cricut is so easy to use. This is her cricut. I have the larger Criciut Expression model. She even took the pictures herself. My DD ROCKS!!!! Might I add, she wants to be a teacher when she grows up! I am a proud mother!
