Joyful Endings

Hello Everyone!!
I can't believe how long it has been since my last post.  My apologies.  The end of the year activities and responsibilities took over and when school finally got out, I absolutely crashed!  This summer will be filled with family, family, family, and a little planning for fall.   But I do want to share a couple of things from our last weeks. We had the honor and joyous privilege of meeting author Mac Barnett.  He is the author of many children's books including "Mustache." Mac visited several schools in our district and we had a blast meeting him!  Here's a link to his site.  Thanks for coming Mac!!! 
We love you!
And here are a couple of pics.
I mustache that author a question!!!
But I'll shave it for later!

I also wanted to show you a couple of things from our Popsicle unit. We wrote poetry, combined math and word work, and made strategy games. 



Large Popsicle Scramble Game-
 Use paint sticks for whole group lesson. What words can we make and how much are they worth?

One of the last things we did was to make a take along Tic Tac Toe board from popsicle sticks!

Portable tic tac toe!

OK, friends, that's it for now!!
  I am putting the finishing touches on our beginning of the year little theme...Superheroes! 
Stay tuned. I'll be posting that very soon!!
Til then, Have a joy-filled day!!!


  1. Wow, that popsicle unit is great! I can't believe you're giving it away free--thanks so much! Since we're already out for this year, I'll save it for next. Have a great summer Nancy. I'm looking forward to what you have for superheroes. :-)
