Mother's Day, Freebie and #teachertalktuesday

Rain, Rain, Go away!!!
Today we were supposed to have Field day.  But, boohoo, we were rained out.
My kids were so not in school mode. So we put some finishing touches on our Classroom Chronicles Newspapers and started some work for Mother's day. Honestly, I am actually behind. I usually start my project at least 2 weeks in advance. I like to get it laminated for my students--and that can take some time. We always make a beautiful poetry book, with portrait and hand print. 
I call this book "Because You Love Me" as inspired by Celine!

This year, I have also added a cute little flower pot card and flower pot holder to give to moms.
Check it out.

Mother's Day Craftivities
I added a sentence strip around the cup!

Front of the cup holder. I guess you could use this for any old plant, and not just for Mother's Day. I just thought it would be nice for the kids to give their mom something prettier than a styrofoam cup!

Mother's day craftivities card (more options available)
One way to make the card. I also gave an option to make it into a full page card, instead of a shape card.

Mother's day Craftivity-Card for mom.
So here is the front of the card--I guess I am working backwards today. The kids then wrote on the b&w version of the pot. I made a Happy Mother's Day one for them to decorate and a Dear_______, version.
 Looks like more rain in the forecast for tomorrow too.  We were supposed to have our school-wide carnival, but that has been pushed back to next week. So, I might be able to get more crafts done tomorrow!!!  
Oh, 1 more thing--did you get to check out #teachertalktuesday on instagram?
It was so much fun taking a peek into so many classrooms and "chatting" with new friends. I even figured out how to add an instagram button over on the side bar!  By the, way is my sidebar too crazy? I'm trying to streamline it a bit, but haven't had the energy.  Anywhoooo, check out my new Teacher Instagram page, and stop in on Tuesday and search the tag.  

Freebie Time: The 3 Little Pigs was a hit this week. We compared the original to The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs (see side bar book carousel for the books we read). I gave them several other versions to read--next week we will be writing our own version of the 3 Little pigs.  I hope you enjoy the freebie!
