Easter Splat & a Chick Update

Are your kiddos "Splat Fans"? My firsties just love that silly little cat! This week we will be reading "Splat the Cat-Where's the Easter Bunny?"  & doing lot of fun Easter Splat activities. I don't know if its the look on Splat's face or what, but that is the cutest little critter I've ever seen! I just want to squeeze him! 

Since we have been working on describing words, I created a lil reproducible book of adjectives that we will be working on this week.
We also we will be finishing up our readers response writing craftivity for a cute lil hallway display.

If you would like to check out more of my Easter Splat mini-unit, just click the pic below.

And a final little update on our "HATCH"....11 out of the 12 eggs hatched!
Awww! They're so cute!

The class LOVES those cute little peepers and really wanted to keep them forever. BUT....let me just tell you-those little cuties are BIG STINKERS!!! By Friday morning, it smelled like a barnyard in our hallway! Whew!!!! There was a lot of Fabreeze spritzin' going on that day! Needless to say, I love the egg-hatching project, but I also loved seeing them go to their new home!!! {I'm hoping that our tadpoles won't be nearly as smelly!} Looking forward to a 4-day week AND a 4-day weekend! WoooHOO!!!

  5. Hi Christie -- I love that you hatched chicks. My father was a world renown professor of poultry science at the U of IL. He spent decades teaching teachers how to incubate chicks with their classes. I know he's smiling down at you from heaven for introducing this to your class.

  7. Would you be willing to share where the clipart is from that you used for this pack? Your pack looks awesome, but as a special ed pre-k teacher I'm looking to make something else for my kiddos. I came across your awesome pack in the process and I need that cat clip art! :) If you are alright with sharing it, my email is creatingandteaching@hotmail.com If you aren't interested in sharing, I understand. Just thought I would ask!

    Thanks!!
