May is here! I find that May is probably one of the most exhausting months to teach in. The children sense the end of school is near and I am physically and mentally drained.  “You’ve got this. Finish Strong” is going to be my mantra to get me through the rest of the month.
I am teaming up with PAWSitively Teaching, The Inspired Owl, and Just Reed for their month Pinterest Pick 3 Linky. Check out my Pinterest picks for my classroom for May.

We are working on habitats in 2nd grade. Each students will be drawing and watercolor painting their choice of biomes. Then they are going to choose an animal from their habitat of choice and mold it into the animal shape with air dry molding clay.

This week we are finishing up our chapter on telling time. I have plans to do this with my kiddos; except I am using pretzel rods instead of Twizzlers.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you find some fun ideas to finish out your school year. Finish strong!

April Pinterest Pick 3 Linky

Pinterest Pick 3

I love the monthly Pinterest Pick 3 Linky hosted by Inspired Owl, PAWSitively Teaching , and Just Reed. I get TONS of ideas to use in my classroom and at home with my own three children. Currently, I am scouring Pinterest for lessons on poetry, Earth Day, and plants and seeds for school and recipes, gardening, and spring/summer fashion for home. Here are my top 3 picks for April.

Just look at this color poem! To think  I actually have some paint chips in my art closet that a friend gave me last year too. I made a graphic organizer to help my students brainstorm ideas before they publish their final project. You can grab the graphic organizer below for FREE.

I simply cannot wait to hatch chicks in my classroom this month. I saw this craft and instantly knew we will have to incorporate it into our unit. I am in love with the little fuzzy chicks too. I saw those little chicks at Easter time, however, now I cannot remember what store they were at!
