A Backwards Glance While Moving Forward

Wow!  What a week!
I an linking up (albeit a little late) with Doodle Bugs Teaching's
Five For Friday!

1.  We have had some really weird weather this winter here in Phoenix - 
Record lows, record highs, and record rainfall (all within 10 days of each other, and then THIS...

These two were taken at my husband's office...

2. Family Math and Science Night
Did you see this post over at Classroom DIY?

Jenaya, The Lesson Plan Diva posted the directions for this awesome
mental math activity, and I knew we had to make some of these for our
Math and science night!
So I whipped up these, and my teaching partner made up a bunch.

For the science part, we had two animal adaptations games - 
Animal Adaptations Memory and Vertebrate/Invertebrate Sort.

3.  Animal Adaptation Projects - We finished our adaptations unit by presenting
the students' Adaptations Projects.  They did an awesome job!
They created brochures about their new animals and then created a diorama to represent it.

4.  Non Fiction Book Reports - We used this packet from the Resource Room Teacher
and the kids made posters about their books.

5.  Getting ready for Dr. Seuss Week!
Got my nails done in style and planning activities for next week.

Go link up and show off what you have been up to!

I am love, love, LOVING
the class books I have been making on Snapfish!
I have made 3 so far, and I just can't get enough!
First was this one at Christmas Time
It came out so much better than I had expected.
I was hooked.
Next we made this one at the end of our MLK unit.

I am putting the finishing touches on the next one we did with
A my name is...
You can get the template here or by clicking on the cover.
They had to focus on animals from Arizona for this one.
I cant wait to get the hard copy!

If you haven't made a photo book at Snapfish it is really easy
and not to expensive when you use their promos!
Try it for yourself.
You will ♥ it too!
C'mon over and share your love!
