A peek inside of my classroom...and a FREEBIE

Good Afternoon Friends!
As I look around my classroom, I see so many projects and creations that were inspired by other wonderful bloggers. I truly am blessed to be a part of this amazing community! I thought it would be fun to share all of the projects and creations that my students have done thanks to you!

We did cowboys and cowgirls for "ow" week. These crafts are so stinkin' adorable from Christie at First Grade Fever!

I bought Christie at First Grade Fever's "What's Hatchin' Chick?" unit and we will be making her chicken life cycle craft to go with it. More pictures of those to come...

Since we are already done with our math book for the year, we are doing these Color by Codes from Kathy Law. My kids are so excited to do these!!
Ignore the date!! I used my friend's camera & I did this recently, not in 2004! LOL

For "ar", I bought Abby's Pirate unit from the Inspired Apple! The kids loved these.
For Earth Day, we made these adorable creations from Amy Lemons' Earth Day unit.
The following are some examples of student writings that came from Rachelle's Writing Prompt packet from What the Teacher Wants. My students used the "If I Were a Teacher" writing prompt. Some of these responses were hilarious *I believe this was a freebie too!
There are some days when I feel like my class is bouncing off the walls like this illustration!!

If I were a teacher, I would give the kids five worksheets every day, but not on Friday. So funny LOL!
Everyone in the school would go home at 10:00. Ha!
As you can see, we really do make a difference to each other and our students! There are so many of your projects and worksheets that I have used in my classroom. I wish I could show them all!  Thank you for all that you contribute to the blogging world!
Here's another freebie from me! This is a short O word sort that I created a while back and edited it to add some "pizazz". It's called "Leapin' Lilypads".  Enjoy!
