Spring Break yet?!

Alas, no.
We still have school tomorrow
but then off for 10 days
so I guess that’s good

The great thing is everyone is being so sweet and well-behaved
Did you know today was National Tell a Lie Day?
cause that was a lie
Out of 21 kids, maybe 5 aren’t on the frazzled nerve I have left at this point

I am trying to fill our days with fun things, but they keep ruining it…{insert whiny voice}
Today we FINALLY began our expert posters
I say finally because they have been bugging asking about them constantly since I mentioned them last week!
But it’s good they’re excited



We began with our Text Features Guru booklets
I love these so much better than last year’s!
I have been using my editions of Scholastic News we had saved after reading or had not read yet
They are perfect and I didn’t have to drag out the old magazines!

I didn’t get any stinking pictures of our posters in progress today, but I will!

We are also reading the Knuffle Bunny books
After reading the first book I pulled out my baby blanket {yes, it really is, I keep it at school where it is safe from Mr. Cleany pants at home} I told them the tale of Rascal the dog next door who stole it from the yard when I was a wee thing and ran off with it. Of how I got it back, but it was all messed up. Of how it is 30 years old and getting ratty. Of how soft it is. Oh man, they were sticking their little noses in it so hard I thought they might inhale it!
This lead to the lost toy stories
These came from Hope King's unit {one of the BEST things I have ever bought on TpT btw}

I remember this one’s ne-ne {paci} from when I taught her sister and do you see the reward for Piplup!

At to end our day today we had our Easter Egg Math Hunt
I just knew they would love it
I just knew we would work together and leave their problems behind
I was just wrong
they loved the egg hunt
they found the eggs the 4th graders hid for us in the courtyard
they refuse to get along
they can’t work together
but after some sweet persuasion from the teacher, we got the task completed!

We can all get along!

and even dug up some worms!

If you are interested, I have this little activity on TpT and TN. It’s so easy in fact, my 3 year old helped me do it last night!

”get in there little booger…get in jail…”{precious!}

and here’s to getting dirty…guess who didn’t want to get their hands in the shaving cream?? BOYS!
We will finish up these eggs tomorrow! I am still working out the kinks. Definitely not as easy as the tutorial made it seem! never is!

IMG_0413I will share this Pinspired project tomorrow!


one more day!
