Although our local weathermen are not predicting March to begin with Lion-like weather, I'm just going to pretend that is what's happening. That way, March can go out like a Lamb, which is the more important part of this whole process. How does that sound? If I just pretend and believe it, maybe it will come true! So as far as I'm concerned, March is coming in like a lion and WILL BE GOING OUT LIKE A LAMB!!! Anyone else on board with me?????
So to make it official I am having an In Like a Lion Sale on TpT and TN. Check out my store from Friday March 1st - Sunday March 3rd.
Next up is a new Linky Party!!!! If you are thinking Spring like I am, then head on over to Second Grade Nest for Jessica's March Link-Up. You can find products for Dr. Seuss, St. Patrick's Day, Spring, and Easter! It's like a one-stop shop!!!
Now for a little recap of what my room looked like in February. As I explained in my "I'm A Slacker" post, I was a little pooped once February hit because I worked my little tush off all January long. It was the end of our 2nd marking period so report cards were due, I was creating new units like crazy to get myself all the way up to St. Patrick's Day and then I had to sit back and coast a little. So long story short, I didn't take a lot of pictures or post much about what we were doing. So here is a quick (VERY quick) rewind to show you what we've been working on. I hope you find some new ideas for next year - sorry I'm late :-(
Let's start with Groundhog's Day:
We started off our day by reading the book, Go to Sleep, Groundhog by Judy Cox. So cute!!!
Then we went into the typical Groundhog Graphing and making predictions about whether the Groundhog will see his shadow. I used activities from these two items on TpT. When I got them they were free --- but I'm sorry to say that they are not free anymore. However, both authors added some adorable activities to them before pricing them and they look super cute! So click on the picture to check out the updated version!
From Sharing Kindergarten I got this adorable poem that the kids cut up and put in order. I wanted to make it a little cuter so I drew..... that's right, for those of you who know me, you can pick your jaw up off the floor.....I did draw this little guy! I've figured out that I am capable of drawing but ONLY when I'm looking at a picture. Trying to create something from scratch is not my thing. I give SO much credit to all you wonderful Clip Art Artists out there!!!!!
I don't have this drawing scanned in, but if I get to it I will upload it on here if anyone wants it :)
(I like the kiddo who added a little COLOR to the groundhog --- brown does get boring :-)
We had a little snack to celebrate 100! I thought this was my original idea since I was standing in the supermarket wondering what to get and this came to mind. Now I'm wondering if there may have been some "Pinspiration" that I saw somewhere but I never pinned it. So I'm not sure if this was mine or not!
Read a couple books...
Made this cute little gumball machine. The idea came from Little Miss Glamour Goes to Kindergarten. We used bingo dobbers and it was SUPER easy.
Click below to get the label for the gumball machine.
One more thing we did was this writing activity. I completely forgot to get pictures of these, and they came out SO cute too! We made a class book out of them. Click on the picture to get your FREE copy too.
I used a lot of activities from Erica Bohrer's Valentine's Day Pack. She has since added more to this pack, but I won it in a giveaway so I don't have the updated version. You can click on the picture to go to her store and check it out. I especially loved her "Some Bunny Loves You" card using a handprint. They came out so cute - sorry no pics again :(
We also worked with the centers and activities in my Valentine's Day pack.
At our Valentine's Day party we played Bingo. You can get your FREE copy of these sheets by clicking on them. I used a 4x4 so the games went faster and we had more winners. The kids chose which words and where to put them on the board. A little cut and paste and you're ready for bingo. Of course, we used conversation hearts as markers.
Finally, we ended the month with President's Day.
After reading and learning about both of these presidents, the kids had the chance to "Show What You Know" in these two projects from my Happy Birthday, Mr. President Pack.
I'm sorry that was a VERY BRIEF recap of our month. I'll try to be better in March with taking pictures and sharing more often. I hope you are able to grab the freebies to use next year!
Don't forget to enter these two amazing giveaways........only a few days left!
Happy ALMOST Friday!!!!
