Insect- Body Parts Label

We have been buzz, buzz, busy
learning about insects.
I do love science, but real bugs, ummmm, no thank you.
I'll leave the dissection of insects and up close & personal to 7th grade science.
Instead I opted for a cuter insect label sheet.
(Please note:  animals were not harmed while making the following activities :)

Zoo Journal

We're still writing information text about Zoo Animals.
I do love Kinder drawing, but to focus a little more on the writing, we're using journals with cute zoo animal clipart from DJ Inkers.

Drop me a note/comment if you find useful :)

(You may not be able to tell, but I used the primary 3 lines, but if anyone knows another way to add lines without the underscore/underline key please let me know, otherwise it slightly shows up when you print)

Why I Love Bloggy Land

Thank you Sue from The Very Busy Kindergarten for thinking of me
Sue has such super ideas, and I'd like to encourage other primary teachers to visit her  awesome blog.

She has a super Blog, with Super Ideas, so head on over :)
So here are my answers to her questions:

1. What is your favorite color to paint your nails?
I don't.  Unfortunately, the only dishwasher in my house is me :(

2. Do you have anything that you collect in your classroom to display?
Do containers count?  Otherwise, nope.

3. What is something you do every year for open house at your school?
Can you believe we're not having Open House this year?  
Since we have 6 furlough days, we're not holding Open House :(
Otherwise, I always have a slideshow with student pictures and music.

4. Do you have a share!?

5. What time do you usually wake up and get to school on a typical school day? 
5:30 sometimes 6:00

6. What did you dress up as on the last Halloween that you dressed up?
A Vampire :)

Silly, no!   Sharks!!!
I know everything there is to know about them.

8. What is your favorite part of working at your school, besides the students in your classroom?
My previous students, they're the greatest :)

9. What tv show do you can you absolutely not miss each week?
Fringe, Justified, Fringe!

10. What is the #1 thing you hope your students leave your classroom remembering at the end of the year?
Everything!  We've been working so hard :)
But if anything, remember to be friendly and help your friends.

Yay For Spring Break!

Today was my first day of Spring Break.
I've been so jealous reading about everyone's Spring Break,
I just kept thinking our Spring Break would never, EVER get here, but it did :)

This is what my first day looked like:
I watched my lil' cutie pie draw the best Snowman ever!

Followed by a beautiful family portrait, can you spot our lil' doggy?

And for my K3 students, don't I look just like this?
(Crown and all :)

I tried to clean, but alas, coffee, relaxing and taking care of my sick cutie pie won out.

And what better way to end the evening than with one of my favorite shows
