Guess where I was yesterday?! Spending the day with THE Kim Sutton!!!! If y’all have never had a chance to see her in person, I *highly* recommend attending one of her workshops at some point in your life! She is AMAZING! I had so many A-HA! moments yesterday!! That woman is BRILLIANT when it comes to teaching math! I’ve been using many of her resources and materials for several years now, but to hear her explain things in person is a totally different ballgame. Here’s a little peek at some of my fun…
Now I’m spending the day getting ready for one of my FAVORITE days tomorrow…EARTH DAY!!! Are you doing anything special?! Here are a couple of things I did in years past…
Last year, we brainstormed a list of things we could do to help the Earth and then made this little bulletin board.
We also did this Earth Day cause & effect flip book. You can download your FREE copy by clicking on the pic below!
I think I’ve done these since I started teaching 11 years ago! HA! And they never get old!
My precious friend, Cheryl, over at Primary Graffiti, has some AMAZING Earth Day ideas on her blog! She used some of the ideas from my Earth Day packet and I am SO copying her tomorrow!! HA!! LOVE her anchor charts! I’m also using her Eco This! Earth Day centers this week!!! Love, love, LOVE!!!!!
Speaking of Earth Day centers/activities, my dear friend, Anna Brantley, has the CUTEST packet of activities I’ll be using with some of my sweeties this week. They’re awesome! You can see them in action on her blog!
Of course, I absolutely ADORE the cuteness from Amy Lemons…such FUN ideas! You can find this one in her Earth Day Craftivity Unit!
Of course, I’ll be using my What a Wonderful World packet of Earth Day fun for my little ones and I’m SO excited!!!! Eeeek!
Here are some ideas I found on Pinterest…
Loving this cute and simple suncatcher from Criss-Cross Applesauce.
Of course, A Cupcake for the Teacher always has PRECIOUS ideas!!!
I’m LOVING these cupcakes from Bird on a Cake and *might* attempt to try and make them later today.
I can’t wait to see what y’all have planned for the week! I’m off to start prepping! God has blessed me with a beautiful day here in my neck of the woods…hope it’s just as beautiful for you!
OH…before I forget. Sweet Crystal over at Kreative in Kinder has organized an amazing fundraiser to help the town and victims of West, Texas. Being a Texas girl myself, this is a cause that hits close to home. Head on over to Kreative in Kinder…read the story…and donate to the cause if you can. God bless Texas!!!
