So.. I'm on vacation. :) I've been doing the happy dance since 3:30 Thursday. I would have said 2:50 when the kids left, but I had 2 parent conferences after school and it probably wouldn't have been appropriate doing the happy dance with them present.
I'm linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching to share some random moments from Thursday. It was a fun day. Well, almost all fun.
We took our tests in the morning. I felt a little bad about giving them a test, but it had to be done...
Then after PE prep we had our own egg hunt in the classroom. They needed to find their own name egg. Then we created our paper bag Easter baskets. We made our buddies a basket as well.
We went outside and hid eggs for our buddies throughout the playground. When it was time to search we helped our buddies find their specific classroom number.
After the egg hunt we had an hour until lunch, so we posed for our Donor's Choose photos and wrote our thank you letters.
Then we reviewed math skills using the Skittles Math packet. There are tons of activities she provided, I choose 4 pages and the kiddos worked with partners to complete using a small bathroom cup filled with Skittles. After they were done working on them, they separated out their skittles and put them inside their plastic egg to munch on later.
Lunch came and went, I filled their baskets with a bookmark, a homework pass, and a pack of cheese crackers. Why cheese crackers? Because I'm cheesy... ha ha! The kids got my joke. The kids also shared treats to add to the baskets. Then we munched and read and colored.
We ended the day outside as a grade level, having Friday PAT on a Thursday.
How did you celebrate Easter/Spring?
