This year was a BLAST!!!

This week we have been reviewing some out of this world content!  I decided to do some fun space activities with my kiddos.  Last year I bought Mrs. Lee's Space Math & Literacy centers.  Well, I loved them so much I had to do them again.  I plan to show some pictures tomorrow or this weekend.  You can see my post from last year here.  We have had so much fun this week!
I created a fun little craft and writing activity that fit in perfectly with this unit.  Here's how they turned out:
We also did some writing about our year.  Here are a few samples:

My Alphabet Book

While planning for my return to school for my last few weeks, I created a simple little alphabet book to use with my kids to review all the letters. 
Here is a picture of my sample:

We colored the front and wrote our name.  Then, I told them we were going to review all the letters.  We would only do 5-6 letters a day during LAWS (language arts writing and spelling).

First, I showed them the letter video on youtube.

Then, they would think of something that starts with A.  After they finish drawing their picture and writing their word, I would call on every child to quickly tell me something that starts with that letter.

I did the same thing for each letter.

My kids really seem to be enjoying it! It's quick, easy, and they love coming up with a word that no one else has done!  You might also consider purchasing this for back to school time.. just a thought!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all my lovely blogger momma's! 
We took our four generations picture today.  I am so blessed to have my mom and nana to look to for guidance.  I want to be just like them when I grow up!  I hope you have had a wonderful mother's day!  I go back to work on Monday.. tear!  I know it's only for 2 and half weeks, but it's going to be hard!  My favorite time of day with my sweetie is after her morning nap.. I will miss it, but I just have to remember it's not for long and then I will have all summer!!!
Here's a picture of a craft my kiddos did with my interim for mother's day:

They made little cupcakes and wrote about why their mom is the sweetest!
Have a great week!
P.S.- Look for a giveaway soon....  I put all my journal prompts into one pack (finally).  I haven't added it to tpt yet because I am finishing it up!  But hopefully it will go up one night this week!
