Robot Directed Drawing FREEBIE

My students LOVE directed drawings and since we are visiting the science museum next week, I thought we'd learn a bit about robots.  Just about ALL kids love robots!
The thing about directed drawings is that they are all the same…but they are all different.  That's what makes them so much fun!  You can get your FREEBIE {here}
I have a new pack all about robots and activities to do for a trip to the museum or just to bring some science and fun into your classroom!  Watch for a post about it soon!
Here is one of the bulletin boards we did this past week... and if you follow me on Instagram (here), you know about the spelling incident that was promptly corrected before this picture! 
Have a great week!

Bunny FREEBIE and Earth Day Fun!

Time seems to be flying by for me and at the last minute I got my kids these bunny masks, 3 for a $1 (@Walmart and Dollar General) to go along with our special snack.  They were a hit!
{Here} is the printable I created, maybe you can save it for next year =)
The adorable bunny clip art is by Graphics From the Pond!
Are you in need of something quick (and last minute) for Earth Day because it has snuck up on you?  Yeah, me, too!
I recently updated my Earth Day pack and I think it is going to be just what I need for Tuesday!
You can find the newly revised pack {here}

Hope you have a wonderful Easter and Happy Earth Day!

For Those About To Rock...

I have been diligently working on this pack for what feels like FORVER…and I finally got to try it out with my class last week and I have to say, it ROCKED! (excuse the pun…but this pack is full of them!)
Ok, so the title sort of dates me…a little shout out to all those AC/DC fans out there.
You can find the pack {here} and it's on sale for today!
Here is the anchor chart I shared on Instagram (follow me here) last week!  My kids used it as a reference tool all week.
We created models of each type rock to add novelty and fun to the learning!
We wrote about rocks…
 we went on a rock hunt outside...
 we learned about where each type of rock comes from and its characteristics...
 We learned that chalk is a rock and made chalk drawings outside….
 we explored a rock collection I found on Amazon…

we read about rocks…
we discussed what rocks are used for….
 we wrote books about rocks….
 we drew our rocks...
we grew crystals on rocks….
 and of course made these ADORABLE rock crafts inspired by the awesome clipart by MelonHeadz that is used throughout the pack!
Hope you LOVE it!
If you'd like a chance to win it, leave a comment, maybe about what you do when or if you study rocks.  You can find my newest pack {here}
Happy Sunday, y'all!
