Five For Friday: Decorate with Dr. Seuss!

It's Five For Friday!!  I swear this day never felt so good...  I needed a weekend! ;)

 Next week is the famous Read Across America week and our class is ready to get down and READ!  I decided to add a little pizazz to my room and dress it up with Dr. Seuss!  I just L.O.V.E. how my new Seuss Banner turned out.

It was so easy!  All you need is colored prints of the book covers (google, copy, paste, enlarge on Powerpoint and print), a hole punch, and ribbon!  I wanted mine to be durable, so I laminated each cover.  

Ribbon from Michaels!!

Hole punch in the corners and tie.

You could also use colored construction paper and alternate the covers and colored paper.

The faces on my firsties when they saw this banner were hilarious!  Their jaws dropped to their feet and they immediately started calling out which was their faves, which ones they had at home, etc.  So fun!!

My Loves on their Daddy Daughter Dance night.  Mommy is very blessed! :)

Spring break is in two weeks, TWO!  But right before that is Parent Teacher Conferences...dum dum DUM!  I am looking for something awesome for the kids to create as artwork plus showing off their reading and math skills to their parents.  This weekend I will be working on this baby!  Enter QR codes and frustration, lol!

If you've seen any of my TPT products, you'd know that I'm more of a cutesy, sweet graphics lover.  But I've decided to make the trip to the OTHER side, the MODERN side on this one!  I loved using these Rockin' Rainbow papers from Ashley Hughes and these awesome fonts from Cara Carroll!  I think the best thing about this product is the anchor charts and the I Can statements.

I've also included Write the Room activities and Exit Tickets for each skill: Root Words, Suffixes, Prefixes, Categories, Shades of Meaning, Context Clues, and Making a Connection.   I'll be using this guy next week.  This will come in handy with report cards!

Find Vocab Artist on sale this weekend!  Check it out HERE at my TPT Store.  

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Sweet Science for Valentine's Day!!

Thank goodness it's Friday!  I've had a week filled with ear infections, walking pneumonia, and pinkeye!  Yikes!!  Get this stuff out of here!!

Last week was our 100th day of school, hooray!!  It came so quick I barely had time to whip up some 100 day goodies!  But I'm glad I did and I'm glad they are all FREE!!!  Here's a peek:

Click on the picture above to get the whole pack, poems and task cards included!

Another part of our 100th day goodies was a 100 cookie bag!  I took a sugar wafer cookie and two fudge striped cookies to make 100.  You can find the baggie toppers and pictures HERE at my last blog post.

Twin Day at school!  My best janitor friend, Doug loves his overalls, so I decided to join the fun.  Love those things!

Our new puppy, Otis has gradually won over our hearts!  Love this little guy (even when I have to wash poo poo off him at 6:30 in the morning).  Here he is with our Mo Mo.

I'm so psyched for Valentine's Day!  My Winter Science Experiments were such a hit with my students, that I decided to create a Valentine's Day unit!  Sweet Science!  Here's a few pics of the experiments my girls and I just HAD to try at home!

All you need are these ingredients to "Fill Your Heart" with love. :)  hehehe

This one was so fun to watch!  You can't tell in the pic, but the hearts would go all the way to the bottom and back up again, pretty cool!
