Teacher Appreciation

This week is Teacher Appreciation at my son's school so I thought I would share some of my Pinterest gift ideas I found.  I LOVE PINTEREST and all the cute ideas.
I hope they are Pin worthy pics :)
Love this idea, mason jar from Michaels and candy.

Got this cute container at the dollar store, put styrofoam in the bottom, pencils in the foam and yellow grass from the dollar store as well.  I purchased the flowers at Michaels for less than $2! and hot glues them on the pencil tips.

The containers were buy one, get one at Kirklands.  Filled them with lemonade and fruit punch drink powder, and tied a sign that said, "You quenched my thirst for knowledge"!

Please share some of your cute gifts you made or received.

So I did want to shout out that as I was scrolling down Facebook the other day, TeachersPayTeachers Facebook page featured one of my freebies!
I was so honored that they filtered through freebies and mine was one that was shared for Library Month.
It was my library scavenger hunt.  You can pick it up HERE!
Thanks TPT!!!!

Alliteration with Some Smug Slug

I love Spring when things are coming alive outside!
I started this week with reading Some Smug Slug and talking about all the critters we begin to see come to life in the Spring.
My second graders are working on Alliteration and what better book to show them then Some Smug Slug!
After reading the book we came up with our own alliteration using my anchor chart.  I got the idea off another website but could never find the original.  Mine isn't quite as artsy but the kids got the point.
You can find the whole unit on my TPT store.HERE

I created a retell paper for my kinders and firsties to draw what the story was about and retell in their own words.  They loved sharing their work!
