This post is going to be full of random tidbits from the last two weeks and it's going to be short and sweet since I have to head back up to school for bingo night. It's also going to contain a lot of freebies to save you time and money. ;)
We've been learning about plants. My favorite new-to-me craft has been I Love Carrots.
It's also a freebie which makes it even better. ;)
You could also use this watermelon craft during your plant unit. I'm personally saving it until our watermelon day in a few weeks.
How adorable are these directed drawings from First Grade Blue Skies?
One of my students said his mom never believes him that he drew it. She thinks I drew it for him and just let him color it in. You can download the instructions HERE.
My students actually cheer when I pass out these printables from Hollie Griffith. They are great because it's interactive - they color, the unscramble words, they roll dice.
We also played this game. (Not free, but it's only $2).
I planted my garden this week!
I planted tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and zucchini. Fingers crossed that it grows.
