Are you feeling like THIS?!??


Do you feel like this right now??? OMigoodness, I sure do! Our super early spring weather has caused a severe case of "spring fever"! I'm still keepin' my firsties attention but I feel like I have to do cartwheels & backflips to keep one step ahead of them...Whew!!! By the way, this is one of my kiddos "Big Chickens" from my Big Chickens Writing Craftivity-this one is a real HOOT! I've had more teachers walk by this chicken in our hallway and say, "I feel just like that!" {I think its the eyes! lol}  Well, I'm super excited that tomorrow is our last day before our "Spring Break" {actually its a 4-day weekend but I like to say Spring Break because its sounds better!} We are also having a "Staff Snack Day" tomorrow which ALWAYS makes the day better! I have found soooo many yummy looking recipes on Pinterest {yell if you LOVE Pinterest...AHHHHHH!} Well, I couldn't decide which recipe to make, so I made 2! Check these out....delish-lookin', huh?

Jalapeno Popper Dip!
Pickle Wrap Dip!
I love those Pickle Wrap things & have been looking for a good excuse to try this dip. And that Jalapeno Popper dip...well, just LOOK at it!!! {Can you tell I'm a snacker?}

This is the little chart of adjectives that we came up with this week to describe that silly Splat the Cat.

The kiddos are doing a great job of using describing words in their writing-yeahhh! And have you seen Babbling Abby's "Pop Rockin' Descriptive Writing" packet? This is filled with great activities-I just couldn't resist buying it! Super cute-thanks Abby!

I just love the Pop-Rocks & check out what I just found at the Dollar Store...yep the Dollar Store!!!
It's Pop-Rocks...Easter Bunny style!!!
So we're gonna adapt Abby's great activity just a little so we can use our "Hoppin Poppin Dip"! Yummy fun! Can't wait!!!

So just remember the tip of the day... "Everything seems better when we add a lil snack to it!" {Oh boy! I better go do some Jillian to make up for all that snackin that will be goin on tomorrow! lol} Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend!

  2. That is the cutest chicken! We don't have the nice weather yet so my kiddos are still pretty normal. I'm more excited about spring/Easter than they are! I guess that's one plus to have the gray weather through April. Still, I'd rather have the sunshine! :) I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow! :)
