FIve For Friday- April 18th

We have a new little Maddux Nicole.  Stephanie says Maddux is a night owl so she is going to drop her off at my house with me since I am the night owl of the group!  I was totally surprised that she had a girl, I was betting on another boy!   

She also got this super cute gift from one of her student's talented parents!
While she's away on maternity leave, Stephanie's class has been learning about all kinds of great topics.  They learned about chickens this week using  a really great packet from First Grade Fever.

 We had our annual egg hunt on Thursday.  The students find the egg with their name in it in order to get their bunny bag filled with treats.  It's great to see the kids help each out and encourage each other to keep trying when they almost give up at finding their eggs.

 I am working on all of these fluency packets and trying to get them all cranked out for the bundle!  My goal is to have a set for each season, a year-round set and an emerging reader set.  They are all Lexile leveled, have word counts, rubrics, and student reading pages for assessment purposes!   Each student page also has different types of comprehension or reading skills activities.   It's a lot of work but I think they are going to be great for next year!  Right now the bundle includes Spring and Summer themed passages for $6 dollars.  As I add more bundles the price will go up so get in now and re-download the updates later!

 Finally, I made up these cute little tags for my friend Liza to use at the party for her daughter's class.  You can download the tags in  PDF form for free by clicking HERE.  I will be making this mix for my class next year! So cute!   

Here is the recipe if you would like to file it away for next year...

A bonus #6! I updated my Summer Fun Awards!  This was one of my first TpT products and it needed a little TLC!    Leave a comment and I will pick two lucky winners to receive them for free!  They are super fun, easy and cheap!  Love these awards!

 Have a very HAPPY EASTER!!
