"When" Activities

We finally made it to "When" Questions.  These were a little harder than some of the other question types, because there are so many different types of answers (time, day, month, holiday, season, and more).

Again, we reviewed our other questions types and brainstormed answers to each one on the board.

Q-Tip Painting Templates

I am really struggling lately.  I am so tired of the cold and so ready for Spring Break!  Unfortunately, Spring Break isn't for another TWO WEEKS!  Ugh.  I may or may not have just booked myself a trip to Dallas for the Final Four this weekend because I need to get out of the cold so bad!  (oops!). 

On that same note, I have been re-doing a bunch of things in my classroom (which I am excited to share with you guys soon!).  In the meantime, I have been exhausted and looking for some quick, easy tasks to set up to keep my kids busy (they are also anxious to get out of school!).

Science Preview: 5 Senses

Last week, one of my older students told me "In April, we have 5 Senses in Science."  I love that my kids remember  the order of our Science Units and look forward to them from month to month and year to year!  The favorite thing for my students this coming month is our Jelly Bean Taste Testing Experiment!  Check out the unit on TPT here.

Beginning WH Questions

With some of my lower verbal students, we have just begun working more directly on differentiating between WH questions.  All year, I have been searching for the perfect photo cards to use when teaching WH questions.  I have several different sets of pictures, but nothing that felt comprehensive enough or that had enough variety.

11 Products I Can't Live Without!

As teachers, we all have certain items we can't live without in our classrooms.  Today, I want to share some of my favorite items with you.  I'm sure many of these items are on your lists as well!  These are listed in no particular order.

Rainbow Craftivity with Fruit Loops

Since this month's science topic is "Weather" and one of our vocabulary words is "rainbow," I decided to have my kids use their matching/sorting skills to create a Fruit Loop Rainbow.
