Let's Catch Up!

So it's been super crazy around here lately.... way too much going on. But here is what we have been up to :)

We completed our January quilt. I think this one turns out the funniest because they have to free cut all of the shapes. I mean... look at the boots!!!

We started our I Love America unit and kicked it off with talking about how we honor America. We do the pledge and sing flag songs every morning (their favorite if Yankee Doodle, mine is You're A Grand Old Flag) so the concept of honoring America is totally relatable. We made our American flags and completed a pledge cloze worksheet.

And this weeks HM story was The Sleeping Pig. It's about a pig that falls asleep in a watermelon patch and the child in the story calls on her animal friends to help get the pig out of the patch. So, to go along with the story we made ourselves enjoying watermelon (just like the girl does at the end of the story) and wrote how we would get a pig out of our patch. I think they came out darling!

(on left: I would get Mrs. Pig out by rolling her with my skateboard on right: I would get Mrs. Pig out by playing the gong)

See busy... Ill be back soon with some freebies, plus I have to tell you all about my new workshop (I'm in LOVE with it)! See you then!

I may be a little late in asking, but I would love a copy of the cloze pledge. This would be great for my ESL students who struggle with the wording. Thank you in advance.

I would love a copy of your watermelon kids. I'm planning a pre-K 22 day summer school experience for children that have not attended pre-school in the past and are going to be in Kindergarten in the fall. The theme of the experience in SUMMERTIME. I think watermelon activities would go great with that theme. Any other ideas you have up your sleeve?
