This week, we finished up some of our St. Patrick's Day writing activities. In first grade, we read this really cute story...
Then, we discussed some things we would wish for if a leprechaun granted us three wishes. Most of the children went with the usual stuff like an iPAD, new toys, a limo, and bacon, which is fine, but, this sweet little girl went a totally different route and her essay literally brought tears to my eyes. See for yourself!
Warms your heart, right?
In kindergarten, my students made rainbow rhymes. It was a nice, simple activity that they really enjoyed. No patterns to trace, nothing to cut out. Just some writing and drawing.
I didn't help them with anything! They sounded out their own words and were very proud of their results. Click here to snag a copy of the rhyme.
In other news, I finished up my Pre-Primer and Primer Sentence Puzzles. Sentence Puzzles have become quite popular in my classroom. They are a fun way to practice reading, writing, spelling, conventions, and grammar. They include all of the pre-primer and primer words and are differentiated.

One more day of school and then I'm officially on Spring Break! Tomorrow is Field Day for my students. For Field Day, each cluster of classes chooses a country to represent. We chose Italy and had these shirts printed up...
Aren't they cute? Biggs and DiMartino are the other two teachers in my cluster.
Go Team Italy!
