Show and Tell

It's time for another round of Show and Tell with my blogging buddies! Lots of fun spring time activities have been going down in our room, so it's time to share!

We hatched chicks in our classroom!  My kiddos were just entranced with our fluffy little ones...they couldn't get enough of them!  They learned so much in the 21 days it took for our eggs to hatch, and they are still talking about it.  Science for the win!

We were learning about land forms and bodies of water in Social Studies.  I have been participating in a little challenge that our Technology Instructional Specialists put together.  We are learning how to incorporate Google apps into our teaching, so I thought it would be neat for my kids to use Google Draw to create some of the land forms we learned about. The kiddos really enjoyed it, and it was a great way for us to learn something new together!

Last but not least, we put together something special for our moms just before Mother's Day.  First we did a little directed drawing and made portraits of our moms.

Then we filled in the blanks to tell all about our moms.  This is the story my little one write about me.  I'm going to overlook the 40 years old part because she thinks I only weigh 70 pounds and didn't write anything about me drinking wine.  I call it a win!

We also made these sweet little bags filled with breakfast goodies.  We put in a tea bag, a cute napkin, an orange, and a Nutri-grain bar.  My kiddos were so excited to treat mom to breakfast in bed!

That's all for this month, thanks for stopping by!  I can't wait to see what fabulous things everyone else is doing in their classrooms!

  5. I love the Mother's Day breakfast in bed idea! The fill in the blank, My Mother, paper gave me a good chuckle. Kids always give the funniest answers.
