Spring Cleaning Sale!

I'm joining some amazing TpT sellers for a little spring cleaning sale! Everything is 20% off in my little TpT shop now through March 31st. I don't know about you but I'm ready to clean out my wish list and get my shop on! :)

Happy Spring Cleaning!

Photo: SPRING CLEANING SALE!!! I organized this special Spring Cleaning Sale that includes 150+ TpT members that range from clipart to educational units! The sale runs from 03/29 to 03/31 (Saturday to Monday). This sale was setup to encourage members to clean out those messy wish lists and to leave feedback for items that they haven't left yet. FUN FACT: Did you know that you receive credit points for every purchased item you leave feedback for?! Yeah, that's pretty awesome right! Well, that's basically FREE MONEY so why aren't you leaving your feedback? You can use these credits towards future purchases on TpT. This is such an amazing feature that TpT offers. Believe it or not, a lot of people don't take advantage of this feature so they are truly missing out!! Hope to see you all this weekend! Be sure to do your part in cleaning up your TpT wish list and feedback! BUT I'M NOT DONE THERE... As you all know, I just reached my 1000 Facebook Likes Milestone so I will be offering some FLASH FREEBIES this weekend to celebrate. So be sure you have selected "Get Notifications" so you don't miss out on these freebies. Thanks for all the love and support! ARE YOU READY FOR THIS WEEKEND??!! http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Zip-a-dee-doo-dah-Designs

Catch Up Post & Read Across America Fun

Long time no blog! I didn't get a chance to blog about all the fun that happened in room 4 for Read Across America. Right after we wrapped up our week of Read Across America fun I headed off to sunny Florida to leave for on cruise for spring break! :) We had the best time and this vacation was just what I needed! Nothing's better for this gal's soul than some sunshine, fun, and traveling! LOVE!! Here are a few little pics from our trip. We cruised from Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Turk, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and the Bahamas. Here are a few little pics from our trip. :)









Although it's always nice to see my sweet firsities smiling faces I was a little sad to get back to the grind this past Monday.... I could have totally went for another week on the beach!

So I'm a *little* behind sharing what we had been up to before spring break but better late than never. Here is a little recap of our week long celebration for Read Across America. We missed Monday due to an icy/snow mixture and were two hours late Tuesday... But that didn't stop us from making the most of the rest of the week!  Monday was supposed to be our Cat in the Hat day. I was so sad it was snowed out! :(

Tuesday was all about Fox in Socks. We wore silly, crazy socks and had fun with rhyming words.



I wrote rhyming words on socks and randomly passed one out to each kiddo. Then they searched around the room to find a friend who had a word that rhymed with their word. 






Wednesday was Wacky Wednesday. We wore wacky, mixed up clothes. Sorry no pics of our fun on this day.

Thursday was all about Green Eggs and Ham. Students wore green, we read the book, and we enjoyed green eggs and ham and green juice!



We completed a cute little Sam I Am craftivity. To add a little writing to our craft we completed one of the sheets from Lyndsey's Just Read Week unit.




We made these Cat in Hats for the hallway bulletin board. They turned out totally cute!




Friday was all about READING! It was favorite book character day! Students dressed up as their favorite book character and we read our favorite books throughout the day. 

Can you guess which book character I dressed up as?? :) 


We also celebrated reading with a fun little party with Seuss inspired snacks. 


We munched on a Seussy Snack Mix. {Recipe from First Grade Fever.} We also drank Seuss Juice. {Recipe from First Grade Parade.}


We ate Seussy Kabobbs


We made a yummy Cat in the Hat snack.


One of our focus skills this week was adjectives. We read The Cat in the Hat and then of brainstormed a list adjectives for the cat!


Well blog friends that's all I got for tonight. Hopefully your computer didn't overheat with all the pictures! ha
