Earth Day Freebie

Has anyone else been crazy busy this week?  I haven't had time in a few weeks to post anything on my blog other than a weekly freebie! After you download this week's freebie, keep scrolling to see what I have been up to!

Our Earth Day / Arbor Day celebration is coming up quick at my school.  I decided to whip up some cute writing paper for my students to use to do a reflection on a close reading we will do that day.  I haven't always been the greatest about doing the writing portion of Close Reading, but I figure if I have some cute paper to hand out, it will help me remember!

If you would like a copy of the papers, click on the picture below.  Be sure to be logged into your Google Account.  If you don't have a Google account, you can download it from my Teachers Pay Teachers store!

So, now that you have your Freebie, I will share some of my other "adventures" with you! My little guy turned 5 a few weeks ago, but we just had his party the other day.  My friend and I made the cakes.  It was over first adventure in cake decorating! I think they turned out pretty good for our first try! Take a look!

For the writing on the cake, I printed the words using a font from Hello Literacy and then traced them using frosting!

My nieces came over for a few hours and we colored some eggs! It is amazing how fast 3 kids can color 18 eggs! I think the whole process lasted less than 7 minutes! 

In my classroom, my students have been working so hard on learning about rocks, minerals, landforms and fossil fuels.  My students had a take home project to make a diorama of a landform.  Here are a couple examples of what they brought in! I was so proud of all of them!

We also had a HUGE snowstorm AGAIN, which caused us to have leave school early one day this week and have school cancelled the next day! Check out the picture below! We didn't have any snow on April 15.  The picture below was taken on April 16!

Hope all is well with you! Thanks for stopping by and and hanging with me during this long post! If you haven't already picked up your fan freebie on my Facebook fan page, you can get it here!  Just click on the tab labeled Birthday Freebie! Have a great week!
