Peek at Our Week

Happy Easter, friends! Hope everyone had a wonderful day celebrating our Savior. He is risen!

I just heart the heck out of Spring Break!! It comes at just the right time! We had a fab time at the beach and are all settled in for the remaining 8 weeks of school! Let's do this!!!

Since summer is right around the corner, I came up with a blog series schedule for the summer and I'm super excited about it! I think I may even do a linky! I am secretly scared of them...why do you ask? Well, I am afraid I'll do it wrong and I'm afraid no one will actually link up! HA! So...if I do a linky, please do it, okay? :)

Let's take a quick peek at our week, shall we?

MATH - Measurement
PHONICS - Vowel digraph /oo/

I am so excited to start with how to! One of my fave things to teach in first grade! We are kicking it off with how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! We make cute flip books during our how to writing unit - more on those in the next post! :)

We are smack in the middle of The Wizard of Oz! Can't wait to pick up Abby's unit when we are done! Getting through this chapter book def warrants a little Oz celebration! :)

SCIENCE - Rainforest Habitat
Thank you, Brain Pop, Jr, thank you! LOVE kicking off our units with Annie and Moby! We will learn lots about the layers of the rainforest, learn lots of facts about monkeys, parrots, toucans, snakes, sloths, frogs, and more. Such a fun unit!

Hope you have a happy week! :)

Let's Get Acquainted! :)

Happy Tuesday, friends! It is rainy and gloomy here in Bama today and coupled with the Spring Forward time change, my little firsties are TIRED! It is our last week before Spring Break {SO excited!!} and we are filling our week with some St. Patrick's Day fun!

We will be making Shamrock Shakes with our 4th grade Tech Buddies tomorrow! YUM!

We will making these cute little leprechauns from Cara - circa two years ago! They are still adorable! Click on the link above for patterns - isn't she the best??!! :)

We will be reading all about the old lady who swallowed a clover, too! :)

I was excited to find a linky party to join today! :) 
I needed a little something different in my blog post today! Thank you, Mrs. Reed

Sooo...let's get acquainted, shall we?? :)

My initials are KMB

K - Hmm! This letter always stumped me when I was growing up, too! You know the first day of school game: My name is Kelli and I am...Krazy. Kooky. Klutzy?? I always just did something with a /c/ sound. And I am going to do it again - ssh! Don't tell! :) CRAFTING! I am loving some crafts these days! I am doing to attempt a burlap bunny door hanger this weekend! So excited!

M- Monograms, hands down! Speaking of my initials!! 
This southern girl loves a good monogram! :) 

B- the BEACH!!! I can't wait to breathe in salt water air next week! Ahhh! AND the Bachelor!  

Have a great week, y'all! :)
