A little rewind post..

Hello, hello! I'm a little late..well maybe a lot late with this post. But I wanted to do a little rewind post and share a few things we did this spring and before school let out for summer. Better late than never, right? 


We had some fun learning about plants. 



 Cara inspired chart. She is the best! :)


We used several activities from The Teacher Wife's plant activity pack. This labeling the parts of a flower is one of the many things in her great pack.


We made a yummy snack inspired by our learning about plants. This tasty treat is chocolate pudding, crushed oreo cookies, and a gummy worm! The kids got kick out of it and said are we really eating dirt?? haha :)



We used Cara's precious flower craftivity pack to make these little cuties. I LOVE how they turned out! They did so great on making their own hair. I was impressed!







We also had a ton of fun learning about Cinco De Mayo and the Mexican culture. We used several actives from my Let's Have a Fiesta pack and A Cupcake for the Teacher's Cinco De Mayo craftivity/printable pack.


We did a little taste test... salsa or cheese dip? Salsa got the most votes.

A local Mexican restaurant that one of my students frequents was so nice to donate chips, salsa, and cheese dip to our class for our fiesta day! The kids were so excited! I couldn't believe how much they sent!!



 We had a fitness/healthy themed door contest as part of our spring Hawk Walk activities. This was what me and my little sweeties came up with. They each wrote/drew ways to be fit on the bee hive. Some examples of what they wrote: I will pump iron, I will work out, I will play golf, I will dance, I will play basketball, I will do karate kicks, and I will walk real fast. :)


I got the chance to chaperon the end of year Beta Club trip to the Kentucky Derby Museum and the Louisville Slugger Museum. This is me and my friend Valerie's little boy. He is precious! :) We had a blast!



So that was a little rewind of a few little things from the end of the school year.

And now it seems that fast forward is in full force and summer is flying by!! 

Me and Eric went with some good friends island hopping through the Bahamas a few weeks ago. We had an incredible time! I'm already ready to go back! Here are a few pics from our trip. 














This was our home for the week while we island hopped... Island Girl. :)
