Penguins, Valentine's, Space...and a SALE!

Hi friends! I have been a bit out of the loop I guess, because I just found out last night about the TpT sale going on! Whoops!! But, better late than never, right? Everything in my store, and many other stores, will be up to 28% off with promo code HEROES. 

I uploaded my newest unit last week for Miss Nelson is Missing! We always do that story toward the end of the year, so I am really excited to use this new pack!!

It seems as though I get around to blogging about once a month. Mia and I have been going to bed around 8:30 or 9 every night, so by the time I pick her up from Nana's, I only have a few short hours to spend with her! She is at such a fun stage...starting to "talk" more, and I am pretty sure we will have a full on crawler any day now! Yikes!

So this month we did our penguin unit! It is always one of my favorites! We used a lot of activities from my Penguin Unit! Of course, I was not the best at documenting... My iPhone storage is always full! Guess I need to put the 238473471 pictures of Mia on the computer...} Anywho, here are a few things we did...

Penguin fact and opinion anchor charts. Then they did the fact and opinion sort in my pack

After reading LOTS of nonfiction texts about penguins, each child made this cute penguin fact book from my pack! Our kids did 5-6 facts each, but you could easily differentiate!!

This is a cool vocabulary booklet I have had since I started teaching 8 years ago! It is always a big hit! Not sure where it came from, but we love it!

For Valentine's Day, we had our kiddos make these adorable sacks again. We have been doing this for several years and they are a huge hit!! I heard one little girl telling her friends, "Everyone is going to be jealous because we get big sacks!"

Not going to lie, we had to do a little crowd control that day. Our specials times were cut short, and I feel like Valentine's party day was a lot crazier than Christmas party day. However, my All You Need is Love! pack came in handy. We had our kids working on these pages while a few passed out their valentines. It worked magically!!

Our kids also reviewed some math with my Valentine's Candy Heart Fun!

We have been working on our space unit for a bit and the kids are really interested! We started with the sun and moon. We made these cute sun fact craftivities!! And as you see, we still need to get around to displaying them in the hall!!

We also did our Oreo moon phases, and moon bubbles writing activity! Here are the direction on how to make the moons!

We will be studying the planets this week! The kids can't wait! Hopefully it won't be another month before I post :) Happy shopping at the sale!!
