St. Patty’s Day Fun!

It’s almost St. Patrick’s day!  I’m so excited!  I  really hope that leprechauns come to visit our classroom <ahem>…more like I will have fun pretending that a leprechaun came to our classroom!  I just finished and posted a fun new St. Patrick’s Day unit to my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  Here are some sample pictures of the activities:

And of course I want to include some FREE items for you!  I just created this fun sight word recognition game to help my kiddos with reading the words like, the, is, want, friend & play.  Click the picture below to be taken to my TpT store to download a copy :).

I also wanted to give you this fun graphic organizer to use when writing about Leprechauns with your kiddos.  This activity is part of the writing activity from my St. Patrick’s day unit.

Penguins, Polar Bears and Eskimo Fun!

This past week we started our Penguin and Arctic animal theme.  I love this theme!  It’s so much fun! I also posted a new math and literacy packet this week.  Here are some sample pictures from the unit, click the pictures  below to be taken to my store:

We also made some cute polar bears with our art buddies last week.  The pattern is from Heidi Song’s Blog.  You can see her post about these adorable polar bears here.

When I was looking through my penguins and polar animal stuff I found this cute little poem about 5 Little Eskimos.  I added some cute clip art so you can make a big book version of this counting poem or you can put the pieces into a pocket chart as well.  The clip art is from Scrappin Doodles and Digi Web Studio.  Click the picture below to download the book :).

I hope that you all have a great week!  Now I’m off to Craft Club with my friends (I totally ❤ making crafts with my friends)!  Feel free to leave a little note for me if you like the book  too :).

Hello my bloggy friends!  I’m so sorry that I’ve been MIA for the last couple of months on my blog.  I’ve been super busy at school and at home!  So many projects and so little time!  I’m just now starting to feel like I’m getting back to a normal routine.  I wanted to re-post some fall ideas and printables AND I wanted to post some new things for you too!  🙂
