Five for Friday

Spring is in the air.  Stephany created a super fast and easy Spring themed preposition activity.  You just cut out the egg prepositions, place a set in a large plastic egg (they fit perfectly) and students use each of the prepositions in a sentence and picture.  The kiddos loved getting to pick an egg and get busy working with prepositions!  You can download the eggs and the recording sheet for free from Google Docs by clicking HERE!
 I have started my maternity leave!  Hopefully, this baby will be here in the next few days.  I have been busy working on some emergent reader texts and other resources for my students and the substitute in my kindergarten classroom.  Since I will be out the remainder of the school year, I decided to make two readers for my students to use.  I also decided to create a CVC "reader" for the kiddos.  I know they are going to love the CVC book!

Before I went on maternity leave, my Donor's Choose project arrived in large boxes to my classroom.  Here are a few pictures of the kiddos opening the boxes.  They were so excited to see the new book boxes!  They have so much ownership when opening the boxes.  I then have them write their "thank you" notes right away.

My kinders, with the help of a couple parents and classroom aide, threw me a surprise "baby shower".  Even though this will be my third child, it was so nice to have a "baby shower" again!  Here are a few pictures of the kids eating their delicious cake and cupcakes.  Since I do not know if the baby is going to be a boy or a girl, the cupcakes were blue and pink.

Thanks to everyone who purchased our Teacher's For Taytum Bundles.  We were able to make an $800 dollar donation to the March of Dimes in Taytum's honor!
