Spring is Here and Everything is on SALE!

Could it be true? Did we finally break the back of Winter, probably not. It will probably snow or something on Monday, Winter's way of sticking it's tongue out at us :0)

My kiddos and I love this song from The Learning Station. Although, fair warning, it gets stuck in our heads and then ends up being sung ALL day long!

My TPT shop is having a little sale in honor of warmer weather! I just finished up my Spring Unit. Here are some pics..the first pic links over to my shop.

Here are the activities and skills that are included...
We Spring for Words-CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.K.2d Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.1 (This does not include CVCs ending with /l/, /r/, or /x/.)
In the Spring -RF.K.1. Demonstrate understanding of the organization and basic features of print. RF.K.3. Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. RL.K.10. Actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding.

Beautiful Printing-CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.K.1a Print many upper- and lowercase letters.

Spring Counts-CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.A.1 Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
Flyin’ High with Place Value-K.NBT.1. Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (such as 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.
For the Birds-CCSS.Math.Content.K.CC.C.6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.1
Little Addition Showers-K.OA.5. Fluently add and subtract within 5.
Missing Tweets-CCSS.Math.Content.K.OA.A.4 For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.
Rainy Day Measurement-CCSS.Math.Content.K.MD.A.2 Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

Tomorrow is my last day of Spring Break. I'm sure it's more than a little strange that I am excited to get back to my little Hoppers! Have a wonderful Easter!
