Memorial Day

Looking for some Memorial Day activities?  I have been planning out my last (yay!) week of school and wanted to come up with a good lesson to tell about Memorial Day. 

I found a really good video on you-tube by Social Studies Weekly.
We are going to do a little writing after about what we have learned!

And we will be finishing up with my Memorial Day book Freebie from my TpT store!


I can't believe we are already planning the last week!  So much to do!!!! 
Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

Last Day Blues

It seems only fitting that if we start our year with

that we should end our year with

I love how both stories show that teachers have similar feelings as their students on these special days!  I know that I am starting to get the end of the year blues and from the love notes I have been getting, I know my students are feeling it too!

We have 7 more days!  Wow!  I made up a little writing activity to follow up the book next week.

I can't wait to see what my students will miss and what they are looking forward too!

One more month

We are getting into the home stretch!  As we are preparing for the last month, we decided to try something just a little different for our reading log.

We felt that it would get kids reading a variety of books and reinforce character, setting, fiction, nonfiction that we have studied throughout the year.  We also know that in our town kids are busy during the month of May with baseball, soccer, and other community happenings.  This way they don't abandon the reading log altogether (which in the past they usually do.) 
There is so much to do this month!  Hope your home stretch is going well!

Earth Day fun!

It has been a busy week and weekend!  I took a little break to do get some planning done for the week,  I can't believe we only have 6 weeks left of school!  This week our theme is Earth Day

I made a coupe of freebies to go with this theme!  The first is a poster that students can make to remind them to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle at home.  The second is a double digit practice freebie!


We also wanted an Earth Day book for our student during our reading block.  I wrote this mini-book a few years ago for my son's first grade class and have used it ever since!

Our weather has been so nice these past couple of weeks!  Spring Fever is hitting us hard!  We are going to use this Write the Room game to get up and moving and stay engaged in our learning!

Hope you have a fun week with your students!
Thanks for stopping in!

What would we do without Saturdays?  I love my weekends, not because I don't like going to work.  I love my job.  But weekends for me are precious hours that I can use to catch up or get ahead.  I have  about 12 free minutes during the week (I know compared to some of you that is a lot, especially if you have any kids under 2!)  and I try to use my weekends so I can make sure I am able to spend time during the week helping with homework, listening to reading, and maybe even a conversation with my husband.  Today I spent grocery shopping, baking, prepping food, and spending some quality time with the kiddos.  I love baking and cooking with my kids!  We get some fun, happy memories and some meals too!
Today we made enough muffins and cut enough fruit for breakfasts and lunches for the week.  We also made supper for tonight, we prepped meat, cut veggies, and planned another couple of meals.  My hubs gets home first and is great at throwing food into the oven or onto the grill, but he lacks in the actually mixing things up department!  LOL!

My kids won't eat any kind of fruits or vegetables that are cooked with the exception of applesauce, so I cut up tons of fruits and veggies every week.  I stick it in containers in the fridge and they "sneak" it for snacks!  LOL #theythinkidontknow

I have been looking through my files and have decided to pull up a few of the things I have made through the year for my classroom.  First thing "How to..."  I have used this a few times through the year.

You can download a copy here.

Hope you have a great weekend!
