Parts of a Plant Freebie

Hello friends,

What a great weekend! I  feel like I was so productive! Fiance helped me get the flowerbeds ready for planting! Actually, I should say I helped him. Sort of. Yardwork isn't my thing : ) We got a few rose bushes planted and two flowerbeds done! Yipee! How fitting that this week we are starting our plant unit. I have a little freebie for you to use with your students. 

I had a really hard time finding a basic labeling sheet for my students to use. So, I made one and decided to share with you. A color copy is also included. 

Go to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store HERE to download for FREE. While you are there make sure and follow me so you don't miss anything! : )

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. According to my calculations,I am down to 24 days of school. AH! I can't believe that I have almost taught for one year. It has been an AMAZING year! : )


Cheep! Cheep!

Chicks have taken over our classroom! 

For about 21 days we watched and turned our eggs in the incubator. Then last week,THEY HATCHED! 


My sweet room mom even made us a special little chick snack!

Meet Gingerbread, Crispy, Kitty and Fluffy. 

Here are a few pictures of some of our chick fun:

Today, the chicks were taken to the farm. My kids were so concerned about the farm calling them by name and being able to tell them apart. It was so sweet. It was so much fun to have chicks in the room and I can't wait to do it again next year!

We have also been learning about insects although they have been over shadowed by the chicks! We made these really cute butterfly life cycles today as a way to cope with our loss of the chicks. : )

I can't wait to hang these up in the hallway. 
Next week we are starting our plant unit. Hooray! : )
Y'all have a great weekend. 

The Wedding of Q and U

  1. Friday was a very exciting day in our classroom. We had the big wedding of Q and U! I have seen this idea before and I knew I just had to do it. My kids have been especially into weddings since I am getting married, so they LOVED this! I think this will be one of those days in kindergarten that they will always remember. We read a precious little book created by Kathleen at Growing Kinders. It was so cute and got my kids really excited about the upcoming event. It is available in her unit: The Wedding of Q and U. 

  1. Here are some pictures from the big event:

The bride and groom. I bought giant wooden letters at Hobby Lobby and dressed them up! 

I made the wedding cake by stacking Little Debbie white fancy cakes. I was trying to cut out a fancy Q and U with my Cricut, but they look skinny and weird in this picture. But, it worked great! : )

I took each child's picture with the happy couple. I will put this in their little kindergarten memory book for the end of the year. 

The wedding was also complete with a reception. We did some traditional wedding dances like the Cupid Shuffle and the Chicken Dance haha. I can't wait to do the wedding bigger and better next year!

Have a great week! : )
