april is frog month

Not to discard the importance of April as Poetry and Library Month, I have loved celebrating frog month for years! In this collection of frog resources you will find the usual read alouds, but also some vintage Sesame Street videos on frogs and tadpoles, drawings, crafts, and poems- and best of all frog sounds! So many to entertain and engage little froglets in your room. To edit this file make a copy of your own!

april poetry month – almost here!

I LOVE poetry month. Every year I find a new way to enjoy creating poetry pieces with kids. This year we are beginning in a comfortable spot- another bitmoji room. They’ve become my starting point for all kinds of work, so why not poetry? You will find the usual book read alouds here, but you will also find some google docs and slides that allow you to scaffold poetry writing and celebrations! Using a haiku doc everyone can be a haiku expert- for inspiration read Guyku from the room below! To edit this room with your own bitmoji, click on the image below and use FILE –make a copy. To see some other poetry favorites I’ve posted click the poetry tag! Happy poetry reading, writing, and celebration, friends.

national crayon day march 31

make your own crayon color (1)In celebration of crayons and coloring (two much appreciated pillars of childhood) I curated a library of read alouds, videos of making crayons, drawing instructions, and more. My favorite part will be students using google drawing to create and name their own custom crayon color. You can see my custom color inventions using google drawing at left. I love all shades of green- but love hearing the names kids come up with for new colors almost as much! This blog would be fun to share, too, it has the list of all current crayon colors, might inspire the name selection. Happy creating!
