Flower Power

Sooo thing has been a Loooonnnnggg Weekend for me since my Hubby has stayed at work for Overtime! While he's been working hard I've been playing hard getting all my pics and documents ready to share with all of you!
We're having our Mother's Cay Celebration this Friday and my kiddos have been hard at work getting ready their Mother's Day Cards for mom.

This flower is not yet complete. The center of the flower will have the student's picture on it and a small poem will go on the bottom. =)

I have my students write a coupon for their mom on each stem. When they glue the flower pot, they DO NOT glue the top or center so that the flower can be pulled out of the flower pot to read the coupon.
The inside of the card has a questionnaire all about MOM, sorry I forgot to take pics of it.

Since we're in the Flower Rhythm I gave my students another Flower Craftivity. It also allowed them to write something nice about one of their classmates.  I decided to make this my FIRST FREEBIE!!!!! =)
I'm so excited! However, please bare with me as I'm still learning Google Docs etc. Enjoy and I will be posting more as the school year comes to a close. However, next school year I will be more on the Ball with posting all the fun craftivities! =)  

I'm Bloomin' Over ______ because....

Click on the above templates and download them. Enjoy!!!

This week we're testing all week with the SAT 10.... ahhhh!! I'm sure my kiddos will do AMAZING since they've worked very hard all year! We're starting our Plant Unit in the afternoon and I can't wait. I've been blog stocking and found super ideas. I purchased Plenty of Plants Unit from Made for 1st Grade and got a Super Fun Hairy Head Grass Experiment that I can't wait to start! I'll keep you posted during the week! 

Thanks for stoppin' by, have a Marvelous Monday! =)

Our Friday...

Since tomorrow is Good Friday, we have no school. Today is like our Friday and since things have been so hectic with testing and holidays and report cards etc. I decided to do some fun craftivities with my class. I was blog stalking this week and found some great ideas... Thank you Reagan from Tunstall's teaching Tidbits
Rainbow Name Bow Craftivity came to my rescue! After brainstorming and assisting my little 1st grade rascals they came out very cute!

My kids were actually very bright when it came to describing themselves!!! =)

Kuddos to them!!!

This week  our story was Blast Off... so I took some ideas from Reagan and created my own little rocket ship craftivity! Thank you for the idea Reagan!

So I created my own rocket, and I had my stdents write their list on what they would take with them if they were going outerspace inside the rocket ship.

And this is how it came out...

Very cute for coming up with is in 10 minutes... my printer was down so I had to think fast!
Thanks again Reagan!!!!

I wish I would've started blogging sooner so I could post everything I've done with my kiddos throughout the year! As the school year comes to a close I will def. post up our fun and freebies for all of you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mmm Fruits & Veggies

Hey everyone! So yesterday was Wednesday and my husband and I went to pick up our first share! We were super excited to see what it was going to be like, how much we were going to get, etc! Well this is what it looked like:

Let me tell you guys something, if you live in Florida, this is definately the way to go! I'm not sure if the club delivers to any other states... For $45.00 we got a ton of beautiful organic fruits and vegetables. We are so excited and can't wait to get cooking!! Please check out Annie's Buying Club

In addition, my birthday is this Sunday and so my lovely co-workers wanted me to eat Cake.... EAT WHAT??? Yeah right! I told them I wasn't going to eat cake and look what they surprised me with...

 A FRUIT BOWL CAKE!!!!! How awesome is that!!! They say I suck but I love my choices and this was a great surprise!!! My kids (students) were even a little surprised when they saw the candle in the fruit bowl. Happy Birthday to Me... eating this way will allow me to stay many years Young as I get older!! =)

Hello Paleo

So, since I'mnew to the Blogging world, I thought I might share that I'm also new to the Paleo World and so far... I LOVE IT!!!! Hubby and I have been on it since before our wedding, 3 weeks ago, however we lost ourselves on our cruise and pigged out... literally! So just last week, we said enough is enough and we did MAJOR cleaning in our kitchen!
As we can call it... Say NO to Crap!
We got rid of all the dressings, toppies, marinades, etc. that have artificial ingredients, perservatives, or that is processed! Our fridge and pantry looked completely empty! Tpday i'm going shopping and Wednesday we're picking up our first share from Annie's Buying Club. We're so excited! Some of our friends have signed up and they pick up organic veggies and fruits every week and some even get eggs and milk. Its awesome because you get what's in season, so you know it'll be fresh! I'll take some photos and keep you posted on how it goes on Wednesday. But for now...we're taking it one step at a time and we feel fabulous!!! =)
