Charlotte's Web, Open House, and SPRING BREAK!!

Happy Saturday Sweet Friends!

BUSY is really the only way to describe the past few weeks and the reason for my neglected blog!
Between Open House, testing, sick baby (who had a ruptured ear drum!....can you say sleepless nights!), and just absolutely no time....  I think I can finally relax and breathe now! (Thanks to Spring Break! Woo Hoo!)

So this past week we had our annual Open House, and with the change of curriculum this past year, we needed to do something new!  I chose to do Charlotte's Web, because it is one of my all-time favorite books!  I usually read the book at the beginning of the year to my class, but with maternity leave this year, I wasn't able to read it....until now!

These past few weeks have been filled with Main Idea, Contractions, Compound Words, Writing, and much more!

To begin running a farm...we of course needed a farmer!  My little firsties filled out their "Farmer Application" and they were SOOO cute!


This little guy would work for $102 / week!  Makes me giggle!!  (for that extra $2!)

Now the Pigs....or should I say Zuckerman's Famous Pigs!  


What's the PIG idea?  (Big idea...Main idea....get it??!! ha ha!)
We read a book about Farm Animals...and how pigs really are very clean animals!  

What would a County Fair be without a concession stand?  So we had our "Contraction Cones"  and our "Poppin' Compounds!"


Pardon the glare.....  I had to use my phone last minute to take pictures and the lamination didn't help!

The entire hallway looked something like this:



My firsties also had some projects on their desk, including their very own booklet on Farm Animals!   Of course, by the time I was taking pictures...they had already taken their booklets home!

My kiddos had so much fun during this unit and we finished yesterday relaxing and watching the movie!  

With Spring Break OFFICIALLY here... hopefully I can get some of my to-do list finished and some of my packets uploaded!   (including my new Charlotte's Web packet!!)

So....What will you be doing over Spring Break???
