Lots of Fun - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

Lots of Fun

Not too "fun" of a post title... but really, I do have some fun things to share! Nash started school this year. Totally the teacher in me, but I wanted to send something cute for his snack (and sugar free according to school rules). He chose Ants on a Log after seeing a picture I showed him. So you other crazy mommies will understand this-- I was up at 5:00 a.m. spreading peanut butter and sprinkling raisins so that his snack would not only be adorable, but fresh as well!
Wait- we aren't finished yet ladies (because, let's be honest, the only males that I know of that read this blog are my dad and my 23-year-old baby brother). I made this little sheet for his teacher to read to them while they were eating!

This is also completely random, but when we were studying the water cycle last week,we played this really fun game that I wanted to share with you all. I found the game on Activity Mom.
This is the blog where I also found my evaporation activity from last week. The idea of the game is that the kids roll the dice and find out how they are supposed to try and "melt the ice cube." One of the options is actually to put the ice cube down your shirt for 10 seconds. Haha, can you imagine how loud my class was :) Although the game was incredibly fun, we also had amazing discussions about why our bodies helped melt the ice. We also talked about how snow and ice are a part of the Water Cycle. If you would like to download this document you can go HERE.

And last, but definitely not least, here is my new way of keeping track of birthdays!
Really, it is the oh-so-creative Erica Bohrer's idea! I saw her great idea and had to make my own!

My kids LOVE how it is their pictures on the board! They are the cutest! I just wish I had a creative idea to put above the months without birthdays. I am thinking of putting pictures of some famous authors that have birthdays in those months. What do you think?

Fake abandonment "salvage" experts tell their customers misleading statements and obtrusive deceives offer administrations that as far as anyone knows bring help, however neglect to convey. www.usacheckcashingstore.com/san-diego
