Dr. Seuss Birthday Plans

I am so thankful for my copier mom. She comes in twice a week and does all of my copies!  I am so blessed!  I typically try to have my plans for the next week done and papers ready to be copied by Wednesday when she comes in. I'm putting together the last few activities for celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday next week. I have three literacy activities and one math activity on TPT that are Read Across America themed! Click on the images below to link to my TPT store.  What are you Read Across America plans?

Friday Linkys

Happy Friday!  Thank you to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting the Five for Friday linky party!

We had the day off on Monday, so Tuesday my class celebrated President's Day by making these cute Abe Lincolns.

The kids wrote about what they would do if they were president. I LOVE their responses!

 I would go in the pool and order Chinese.

"I would play plants vs zombies."

                                                         I would stand up for my country.

This craftivity is available in my TPT store.

My sister and I went shopping after school today.  It was relaxing shopping without a preschooler and toddler!  (And it has been a while since that has happened!) I am excited about this necklace I bought at J Crew Factory. Did you know that you can get a discount by showing your teacher ID there?!

Five for Friday President's Day Weekend

Oh boy, this was a long week! It was the first five day week of school since the beginning of December. Between actually going to school for five days, the full moon, and Valentine's Day, I am exhausted!  But, it was good to be back without snow days and delays- I actually got everything done! 
We wrote about what we love on Valentine's Day.
 A lot of kids love their cats!
I thought this one was so sweet!

We are in the middle of the weather unit. This week we learned all about clouds. After reading Eric Carle's Little Cloud, we made our own little clouds. I squeezed white paint on a piece of blue construction paper. The kids folded it in half and rubbed the outside of the paper. When they opened it up, they had a cloud!

Find lots of other freebies at The Primary Gal's Friday Free For All linky party. 
We have the day off on Monday for President's Day, so my class will be celebrating President's Day on Tuesday. We will make my new Honest Abe craftivity. 
Honest Abe: A President's Day Craftivity
It's available now in my TPT store. 
Growing up, I remember my mom and grandma having a contest each year to see who would see the first robin. My grandma is no longer with us, but my mom and I carry on the tradition! I saw the first robin today! That must mean that spring is around the corner! 
There may be robins, but I'm still in winter mode! 
Winter Snow Literacy Stations

My Winter Snow Literacy Stations will be 50% off until Tuesday morning.

Thank you to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting the Five for Friday linky party each week!

 I was approached by a teacher new to the blogging world. She has the blog, Wigglin' in Kinder.  She shared the links of her blog and TPT store with me. I am excited to get some of her products while they are on sale today!

 I'm not quite sure what I'm going to use them for, but I love these little metal buckets my mom found for me at the Dollar Spot in Target!
