Spring Cleaning Sale

Happy Friday Eve! My goodness I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of working 5 days without a break from the s-n-o-w! I can't even say the word after our 22 snow days this winter! It isn't quite as bad as it sounds- our last day with students will be June 6th. I am very over winter and ready for SPRING! So, to enourage it to actually start feeling like spring, what's better than a little Spring Cleaning Sale?! I'm linking up with Valerie at Georgia Grown Kiddos for her Spring Cleaning Sale! I hope you are able to check the 20% off sale at my store as well as all of the amazing products other teachers are putting for sale as well!

Dress like a book character (Read Across America Week)

I'm linking up with Primary Chalkboard again for their Read Across America Linky

We aren't doing a lot with Read Across America at my school- due to 22 snow days! But I have a couple of characters I have dressed up as in the past!

Can you guess??  Haha One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish of course!! This was from our Dr. Seuss night a school a few years ago! Each grade level chose a book, and an activity to go with the book. The other kindergarten teachers and I made a fun game where the kids were "fishing" for rhyming words! So much fun!

The next picture wasn't for Read Across America, but for our Halloween Carnival a couple of years ago. Can you guess which book character I am dressed up as? 

My favorite kindergartner (or first grader) Junie B. Jones of course! :)

So much fun! I hope you all are having a blast during Read Across America Week!! Be sure to check out Primary Chalkboard's Blog to find out what other teachers are up to this week!

Read Across America Linky Favorite Children's Author

I'm linking up with Primary Chalkboard and their Read Across America Linky!

My top pick is the wonderful Barbara Parks. I love Junie B. Jones as do my kindergartners! It saddens me greatly that Barbara Parks passed away recently- but I am SO very grateful for her leaving us with Junie B.!
My next pick is Victoria Kann. If you haven't read her Pinkalicious stories- you need to! She is more loved by my girls than the boys, but still so much fun!

Another favorite is James Dean! You have to love Pete the Cat! I also love that you can go the publisher- Harper Collins website and download the songs that go with the books! They are so much fun!
