Spring Break, A Look at What We've Been Up To, & a SALE!

So this week is Spring Break...FINALLY! That means that I only have FIVE (that's right 5!) days left to work until my maternity leave starts! :) Spring Break also means that it is time to play blogging catch-up. Here is a few (and by few I really mean several) pictures of some of the things that we have been working on over the last month or so. Enjoy!
Journal Writing

This past picture is one that one of my EL students did. When she came to me she was almost completely non-English speaking and now she is able to sound out words and write them all by herself!
Reading and Writing Celebration Week!

The Imagination Place came to our school. It was so much fun! The kids made their own Oobleck and were able to try green eggs and ham!

    Since our school is a K-12, high school students came to read to our class! 

We did a small study about teeth for Dental Health Month. (Sorry these were the only pictures that I remembered to take.) 

Reality and Fantasy

 I found this CUTE Olivia pattern on Pinterest. It came from The First Grade Jungle. You can see the post about it here.
 We made shapes out of marshmallows and toothpicks! Fun, engaging, and yummy!

I got this cute idea from Mrs. Payton's Precious Kindergarteners and guess what? It was FREE! 

The shape monsters came from Kindergarten Smorgasboard and again it was FREE!


These little darlings were an activity in our math series. The kiddos were given a shape and had to make it into something else by adding to it.

 For our shape hunt, we looked around the classroom and outside to find real-life objects that were shapes. Fun, Fun!
St. Patrick's Day

This craft is included in my new St. Patty's Day Pack that didn't quite make it to my TPT store before the big green day this year, but I hope to finish it and it added to my store while I am on maternity leave this summer for next year.
Frogs, frogs, and more frogs!

 We have been working on my frog unit the past couple of weeks. I forgot to take my camera to school before Spring Break, this is the only picture that I have. We have done several activities from my Frog Pack and I also added some more activities (including this cute fly craftivity!) that I will be updating my pack with while I am on maternity leave.
My Frog Pack, along with my other Spring packs are on sale today through Friday in honor of Spring Break! Grab you a copy while it is on sale and then you can re-download once  the updates are made!
I also finished my ELA Homework Pack and it is also on sale along with my Math All Year Pack and my BUNDLE Pack of Math and ELA All Year!

Please if you grab any of these items LIKE my store and leave me some feedback!
Hope you all have a GREAT rest of the week!
