7 More Weeks

I read this blog post just before entering the classroom after spring break. 

https://paigegivens.com/2017/04/02/7-more-weeks/


I LOVE this! It's just what I needed to read after a week at the beach and desperately wanting to stay and never return!!!  We also spend the next 7 weeks making notes for next year's teacher. 


      This one will be great at getting your mail. 

      This one can get papers to any teacher in the school for you. 
      This one will cry during a storm, so remind her it's just the angels bowling and 
      when it thunders a loud boom, someone just got a strike (my daddy I'm sure).
      This one is overly dramatic, so a scratch is REALLY going to hurt. 
      This one has dyslexia but she will never stop trying. 
      This one (who has been through safety training, lol) can be
       trusted to spray the bathroom with air freshener.
      This one- never, NEVER let her touch the air freshener (unless you need an 
       hour outdoors while the fog clears). 

Yes, they drive me CRAZY some days, but I love ever one of them, and I will be telling them so, for the next 7 weeks.

Let's Vote

Is everyone ready for the big event coming this November?!?!? Get your class excited about the election by letting them join in the fun. We have always let our children vote in a mock election so that they can voice their opinions like us adults. We created this fun voting pack to share some of the things we do with our children to help them understand the process of voting.

We start the theme off with a special election...Which animal would make the best family pet?  They get to campaign, make posters, make buttons, etc. Finally, they get to vote!  They absolutely love this!

And since it's ELECTION YEAR, so we had to include a section on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. We have them talk with their parents about the candidates so they can make an informed decision. We try to make the voting as realistic as possible. 
Let's Vote 2016!
You can get it HERE!

I Voted! FREEBIE labels to print for your class if you do a 
classroom election this year. They will print on Avery 5160 label sheets.

Number Word Practice

We needed more practice with number words, so we created a little extra practice to go along with our apple theme for September.  We included 3 different activities for practice. (Ordering Apples, A Number Word Booklet, and a center game called Gathering Apples.)  We also included a page to use for assessment because if you're like us, you need a grade.  This goes perfectly with our HUGE Apples! Apples! Apples! unit.  Be sure to check them both out at our TPT store.
