Getting familiar with George and Abe

Let me introduce to you ... George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
Let me say that my kids LOVED making these little guys! You can catch them here!

My kids wrote about what they would do if they were President of the United States. Boy they had some interesting, exciting, scary, and for lack of a better word HILARIOUS answers! This packet includes a whole group and individual graphing activity and all the items needed to create it as well as a word search and a FUN writing activity. Go check it out :)

Dr. Seuss and St. Patrick

 In other news  We have good behavior day on Friday and since time will not allow for us to celebrate as much for Dr. Seuss' upcoming birthday, we went ahead and made our Dr. Seuss soup!  I found this idea at Lory's Page. She has some really cute ideas and several freebies go check her out! All I did was tweak the recipe a little bit to fit my taste :) These were the magic ingredients...

Mixed it all together and ... ( drumroll please )

Let me just say that the kids LOVED it! They wanted seconds! My co-workers also enjoyed it as well :)
I have created a new craftivity packet that you can find here! It has some super cute activities to use with your students for St. Patrick's day and is a super cheap price too :)

Hello... We meet again.

Sadly, I have been SO busy. Teaching 2nd grade leaves about 3.25 seconds left in the day for anything extra to be done. No worries, I am back for  good now!  I am going to attach a math freebie below that I used earlier in the year. It is a pizza chart that I used to chart each child's progress while learning their addition facts. It can be tweaked some if needed. If you have any suggestions please feel free to comment below! Enjoy :)
