Sorry I have been neglecting everyone for the last week! I am swamped with assessments and report cards, and to top it all off, I have been blessed with a terrible cold! Gotta love winter! Fingers crossed for an early spring!
I did want to give a big thank you to everyone who supported my Leap Day sale at TpT! I truly appreciate all of your sweet comments, too!
I just have a couple quick things to share with you tonight! At the beginning of the month, we talked about the saying, "In like a lion, out like a lamb." We read this little poem by Lorie Hill, then brainstormed characteristics of a lion and lamb. Then we talked about what it meant if the weather was like a lion or lamb. We predicted whether or not we thought March was going to come in like a lion or lamb!
On March 1st we ended up having very lamb-like weather, but the 2nd was a big snow storm, so I'm hoping that was the lion and we are on our way to a beautiful spring now!
We made these cute and easy paper plate crafts. We painted one plate yellow with an orange border and the other we painted black (although a few students wanted to leave their lambs white). Then when they dried we added googley eyes, construction paper noses and ears, and cotton balls.
Well that's it for tonight! I'm going to relax with the puppy tonight and watch some cheesey chick flicks on tv! Good night everybody!
