Five for Friday! March 18th

I finished all of my i-Ready tests this week in preparation for report cards. Woot woot!

I read so many books related to St. Patrick's day this week! We had to make our own leprechaun's and talk about times when we felt lucky too. There were some really cute ideas =)

Who doesn't love the Old Lady stories? I made a little sequencing activity to fit in a shamrock. In challenging some of my more advanced readers, they had to add the rhyming words from each component as well. I put it free in my shop if you want to grab it!

It was a busy week because we had to fit in St. Pat's Day, Easter, and assessments. Crazy! We made these cute little chicks and turned them into simple math equations after reading "Jellybean and the Unbreakable Egg". A darling little story about a chick that takes longer to hatch. They try to crack him using many different methods but find out that loving him is the best!

We had a Celebration of the Arts in our building with the theme being "Eric Carle".  I bet you can figure out which books go with each project. There were lots of  cute displays throughout the entire school as well as the 4th graders (my son's class) performing with their recorders. I thought the picture was so fitting =)

Woohoo!! We made it to Spring Break! So excited to spend time with the family =)

Have a great weekend!!


  1. That meme about the recorder literally made me LOL! It was always a rough day when they started those when I taught 3rd grade. Thankfully, they've been fazed out of the music curriculum.
    The Eric Carle artwork is gorgeous! I love the ideas. So pretty, and truly artistic!

  2. We are on Spring Break too. We'll start iReady assessments when we return. The Eric Carle art is great! Enjoy your break!

  3. Your students' eggs are so cute! And that artwork is amazing! Thanks for sharing.

  4. We just started spring break too! I totally understand the excitement! Felt like this was the slowest week leading up to it. Hope you have a great break!
