Popsicle Pizzazz!

Hello Everyone!
Wow! What a week!  I am so sorry I haven't posted in a while.  We had a huge musical production on Thursday evening which included a cast of our 100+ first graders. Each one had either a dancing or speaking part along with singing 5 songs.  It was spectacular! The support we had while working on this memorable event was amazing, and having an audience of over 400 guests (standing room only) was thrilling!! I will post some pics soon!! 
Right now I would love to share a fun, cool crosscurricular unit that can take you right into summer. It's all based on popsicles.  Here are a few pics from the 60 page free unit!

  4. Nancy,
    I am sure the performance was amazing - just like this Popsicle unit. Thank you again for sharing your many, many talents with us. And...believe me, no one minds that you don't post every day - or as often as you'd like... because each post is so fantabulous and almost always contains a wonderful and complete unit that must take literally weeks to complete... As long as you post and share - Teachers WILL FOLLOW and keep following! Even if posts are far between... We love you and your work!
    Happy Sunday!
