V-Day Surprise and a Fat Tuesday Sale

Is it me or are holidays at school ALWAYS exhausting. Especially ones that involve candy! 1st graders with sugar highs… need I say more.

Despite all of my littles hyped up on candy… We did have a great V-Day! Let me catch you up on my V-Day Surprise.
Around 1:30 I heard a male's voice walking through my door. During this time my kids were at Math Tubs and I had pulled a small group. When I looked up in confusion I saw my fiancee with a balloon, flowers, a children's book, and candy in hand. Loves.

He bought a book to read to my class. Not only was I excited to see him {since we live a little over an hour away from each other} but, I was excited for him to calm my littles down with a book… which also means a break for me right?

We also had some fun with the Sweetheart Snatcher activity via The Inspired Apple on Valentine's Day! My kids got a kick out of this. 

Also, we created the "I love you as big as _______" activity. 
(the airplane)
(the moon)
(an elephant)

Now on to other classroom updates…
For the last few weeks we have been learning about America and American Symbols via Deanna Jump's Unit. I loved teaching this subject! All of the activities came out adorable, and my kiddos really absorbed all of the information. 

We also made silhouettes for my "Future Greats" front door. The students wrote "If I were President I would _______" in their speech bubbles. 

Here is everything displayed in our hallway:

We also did the Contraction Surgery activity inspired by Cara Caroll. 

And lastly, I created this little gem of a headband for our school Mardi Gras parade we had Friday. Pictures coming soon. 

And since today is Fat Tuesday, I will be throwing a flash sale today only!
