100th Day of School and Penguins Recap

We haven’t had many snow days this year, so our 100th day of school was February 7th. Here are a few pictures of the activities we did! Since it was on a Friday, I actually didn’t have a ton of time due to library and spelling tests. However, the kids loved what we did get to do!

V-day Art, Writing, and Reading

Here is a cute art activity I did with my kids today for them to take home to their parents. A little late, but the snow days totally threw everything off. I don’t think parents will mind! :)

I decided we would just celebrate Valentine’s Day all week, so today we brainstormed what love is and how you can show it and put it all into a heart themed thinking map. The kids loved it and they are just too sweet! Read more

Valentines from the Teacher

This is a really easy and super cute idea for Valentines for your class that I got from Cara over at The First Grade Parade.
First,  trace your hand and then curl up the two fingers with a pencil. Cara used a straw in hers, but I found these cute V-Day pencils on the dollar aisle @ Target and wanted to use those instead!
Just tape whatever you choose to the back of the hand. Voila- easy and super cheap!
