So, let me tell you, it has been MAJOR crunch time in my classroom this week to get my room decorated for Spring!!! Aside from wanting to get rid of all of the snowmen and penguins for my own personal sanity, I HAD to get some Spring up on the walls because I have to be gone the week after Spring Break.
But, get this. That's not even the worst part!!!! The worst part is, as soon as I come back, we have conferences. And, let's face it, having conferences surrounded by snowmen IN APRIL is just a little bit ridiculous.
Enter all projects fast, thrifty, and Springy. Here's what we've been up to this week:

So, this little buddy was morning work. Super easy to put together and it didn't take the kiddos more than 20 minutes to do themselves. The low-down? Each kiddo gets a page of raindrops. I gave my low kiddos raindrops that already had words printed on them. Then, they had to read the word on each raindrop and decide if it had the long A sound or if it didn't. If it did, they cut out the raindrop and glued it to their umbrella page. As for my higher kiddos? They got a page of blank raindrops and had to write their own long 'A' words. And did I mention that theirs turned out waaaaaay cuter than mine? A yellow umbrella with orange polka dots? What was I thinking?!?!?!
So....I have to know. What are you doing to cover your walls with Spring this year??????
Have a FABULOUS Tuesday!!!!!
