It is FINALLY here! SPRING BREAK! Can I get a Whoop Whoop??!! =)

I honestly did not think that I would make, but yes it is true- Spring Break has arrived! Nine wonderful days to spend with my baby girl relaxing and playing. ahhh! I already fill SOOO much better than I did yesterday afternoon. I have been so stressed trying to make sure that my kids are ready for the BIG test. I have finally decided (today) that either they are going to know it or they are not and at this point in the game their isn't much I can do. I have prepared them as much as I possibly can. Yes, we will still review when we get back from Spring Break the few days we have before the test, but as for me worrying and stressing- that is over. =)   (I hope!)

Okay, now for some fun stuff.....

a BIG THANKS goes out to Heather from Beg, Borrow, and Teach! for nominating me for the Lovely Blog Award. I have received this award in the past, but it is so nice for someone to see fit to give it to me again. It puts a big smile on my face, so for that THANKS!

Also, Ladybug's Teacher Files is having a Linky Party for Anchor Charts! I have decided to link up and I hope you will too. =) Below are some pictures of some of the anchor charts that are currently hanging in my classroom. Some I have come up with myself and others are Pinterest finds.

 As part of our "shapes" discussion this week, we  made these Quadrilateral Flip Books. We folded a sheet of cardstock paper in half (hamburger style), wrote quadrilaterals along the fold, wrote the five different types of quadrilaterals on the front (spacing between each), cut the front flap between each word, and wrote the definition behind each flap. We then used our flip books to name different quadrilaterals using all names possible. It seemed to work really well.

 I also have pictures of some of the best leprechaun traps that my kids came up with. Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures. My camera didn't want to focus for some reason.

I hope you all have a great weekend! If you get a chance, you can check out my TPT store. I added a new grammar pack and there is my Spring Fun Pack that has a very cute bunny bag craft (if I do say so myself!).

If you aren't already a follower of my store (or blog), I would love for you to start! =)

Happy Weekend and Spring Break!
