Happy Friday! I hope y'all have a GREAT weekend!!!
This literacy center is called "Eggtraordinary Endings" and focuses on making words with inflectional endings. To make this center, you will need 10 plastic eggs. Write a root word on the largest side and an inflectional ending on the other smaller side.Break them apart, put them in a basket, and your students can have a blast making words.
Here is a recording sheet you can use with this center! Click on the picture to download it!!
Hope you enjoy these activities!!!! Don't forget to enter the "Spring Themed Fun" contest if you haven't already!!! Only two days left before the winners are announced!!!Happy Friday Eve!!!!

Now onto the "Bunny Shakers"!!! Aren't these so sweet!?!?! I saw them at the Dollar Tree and immediately thought "DICE SHAKERS"!!! YAY!!! I love a good ole' day at the Dollar Tree. I can't wait to use them with my Spring and Hippity Hoppity Math and Literacy Centers!!! It's worth checking out your nearby $Tree to see if they are available!!!
I made an addition and subtraction recording sheet to go along with these adorable bunny shakers. Students make addition and/or subtraction number sentences with the numbers on the dice. Click on the pictures to download them!!!

This is completely unrelated to fractions, but my firsties had so much fun with it that it's a MUST SHARE. In science, we are learning about light and shadows. To reinforce the concept of shadows, we made ShAdOw PuPpEtS!! Fun stuff, I tell ya! I gave each child a piece of white cardstock (reg.paper would work, too) to draw what they wanted their puppet to look like. Then they cut it out and taped a popsicle stick to the back of it! When all the puppets were ready to go, we went outside on a beautiful sunny day and checked out the shadows they made!! SO.MUCH.FUN!!! and E.A.S.Y!!! Look at how precious they turned out!! When they came back inside, they completed a graphic organizer about their shadow puppet.
Happy Weekend!! Be on the lookout this evening for my 100 Followers Giveaway!!! I'll post about it as soon as my little one goes to bed:) Again, THANK YOU for following my blog!!! Did I mention y'all are AWESOME?!?!?
