School is flying by. I'm actually really sad that school is coming to an end. I have the sweetest class ever. and I'm really sad to say goodbye to them. We only have 1 month left. So I'm trying to soak it up before it's over. I don't know if you know this but I only work part-time, I have an amazing partner and she is retiring at the end of this year. My district is forcing me to go back full-time. :( Which I'm really not looking forward to and move rooms. This summer is going to be a TON of work.

We've been working our tail ends off learning about shapes. I just finished my unit Shape-aholic and it's all Common Core aligned. After teaching it to my firsties, they really got it. If you looking for some activities to teach shapes click on the picture below.
Today the sun is shining and it's beautiful weather here. It has put me in the giving mood. If you can guess my favorite color you can have this unit for free. Make sure and leave your email too. I hope you're having sunshine too!

Spring has Sprung!

We've been getting ready for spring in our classroom. I don't know about you but I'm loving this spring weather. It has finally started to warm up here in Utah. Today we came up with all the words that reminded us of spring.
 Then we made a class acrostic poem of the word Spring.
 I found this cute idea on Pinterest. Now I've tried to find my original pin and I can't find it. If anyone knows who came up with this idea. Please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
 The picture I found was one similar to this but it wasn't an acrostic poem.  It was just words that described spring. So I decided to put my own twist on it and turn it into an acrostic poem. Here is the example. The only thing I don't like is I wish the green was behind the orange so it would go in the right order. I just ran out of room. Whoops!!!
Here are my sweet student's work!
I hope your spring weather is as good as ours!

What did they say?

What Did They Say!?
I'm linking up with A Turn to Learn on her fun linky party, what did they say? So I had a funny today when I was teaching one of my little firsties. She and I were talking and she told me she had made something for me with LOTS OF GLITTER. I said oh that is great I love glitter. She said oh I know everyday you wear lots of glitter on your eyes. So I know that you like glitter. I had no idea I wore glitter on my eyes? I wear this makeup... on my eyes. I guess it's a little shimmery. But I had no idea I wore glitter. 
For some reason I always get comments about how I dress or look. One day I curled my hair and one of my students said to me. Oh man you're having a bad hair day. Did you forget to do your hair? I love how innocent they are and how honest they are. You know they will tell you the truth about how you look.  Go link up......
