Valentine's Day & Pinkalicious

Hi sweet blog friends! This week sure has been a long one it seems like! Where is the snow when you need it!? I don't have a whole lot of pictures to share from our Valentine's Day events.... unfortunately my camera battery went dead way early in the day and I didn't capture hardly anything... :(

Here are a couple though...

We made these card/treat bags from my Be Mine unit.


We made heart shaped glasses.



Unfortunately, after that the ole camera bit the dust with an "exhausted battery."  Some other things we
did was play Valentine's Day edition pictionary, graphing with candy hearts, making words with the letters in Valentine, etc.

Sweet Mr. E sent me some flowers to work. :) LOVE HIM!


(not the best pic... sorry it was taken at night so real bad lighting!) but they were beautiful.. and it made my day! so I thought I'd share! :)

Happy Saturday!! I thought I'd share some of the things we did for Groundhog Day. We read the book Groundhog Day by Gail Gibbons (love this book! it explains the day so well and gives such great info about groundhogs!)

Here are a few pics of what we did for Groundhog day...




 The groundhog pattern can be found at Finally in First and the writing paper at Teacher Bits and Bobs! Go check these gals out! :)

Don't forget to check out my newest unit on TPT... Fun with The Cat in The Hat and Friends! By request I just uploaded the patterns in a pack by themselves. I have both of these marked down.

Last week I had bus duty so that was the reason for the lack of posting! That and trying to finish up this unit and surviving my first unannounced pop-in evaluation under this new evaluation system.. YIKES! On Friday we celebrated the 100th day of school... I was t-totally tired by the end of the day! But we had a fun day! Here are a few pics from our celebration.

 Throughout the day I drew out a name and that student got to pick a balloon for us to pop. Inside each balloon was a different 100 activity for us to complete. Some examples of things we did are... 100 jumping jacks, draw 100 shapes, count by 2's to 100, do 100 sit-ups, touch our nose 100 times, clap our hands 100 times, blink our eyes 100 times, etc. My favorite was 100 seconds of silence!!!! :)


We made a 100th day trail mix!

This was a pinterest idea. Sorry for the dark picture... maybe you can tell what it is.. if not this 100 was a police van :)


We completed the little 100th day book that you can find at First Grade a la Carte, Can you guess what this little drew for what he would look like in 100 years??? HA

We did a ton of other activities... but I didn't get pictures of every single thing. But they were all pretty much pinterest ideas. I sent home a brown paper sack with a note at the beginning of the week asking for parents to help their put 100 of the same item in the bag. They wrote clues about their 100 item and then they shared with the class the clues while we took turns guessing what was in the bag. They got pretty creative with this.., I was totally stumped with the 100 UNO cards! I got the kids 100 day glasses from Really Good Stuff. They were so precious in them.

And this is totally random but.....here is a snowman cookie snack we made a couple of weeks ago.. this was pinterest inspired as well.


Well if you made it to the end of this super duper long post.. thanks for hanging in there!! The first person to comment will snag a copy of my new Dr. Seuss unit for.. FREE :)

Happy Thursday night! I'm pumped that tomorrow is FRIDAY!!
