Sailing through Spring Linky

Thank you so much for stopping by for our Sailing Through Spring Linky.
Many of us are over this winter and are READY for spring, so we thought we would bring together some tips and ideas to help get you going.
Also don't forget about the big sale going on this week at Teachers Pay Teachers (27th & 28th).
This is the perfect time to stock up on your lesson plans for spring.

I'm not sure how your spring break and standardized testing works, but in our neck of the woods,
we are taking spring break the last week of March and then returning to immediately start testing.
Great idea!!!! (ok, we don't think it's so great)

Because of that, we have a lot of pressure heading into break.
My tip is simple, while you're hammering in all of those skills that you've taught all year but are unsure if anyone has listened to or learned...don't forget to have a little fun.

Throw in a few extra learning games,
 have some laughs and relieve some of that stress from yourself and your kids.

Here are some links to a few games that I have in my store.

There is also a link to a FREEBIE.
Click on the pictures to visit my store and to grab your FREEBIE.
Now get out there and have some fun. Be sure to visit the other great bloggers who are linking up.

Cards for Kindness

If you've been over to The Teaching Tribune lately,
then you know we have been having a linky party called Cards for Kindness.
It has been AWESOME to see all of the great things that are being done. 
My buddy teacher, Karen Hyers (aka Teacher in the House) has a student in her class who has BOTH parents deployed to Afghanistan. So we knew we wanted to send our cards to them.

We made flip books and bookmarks using a product I made using some amazing
Graphics From the Pond.
Here's how they turned out.
Our kids had so much fun making them, knowing that they were going to someone who would LOVE them so much. Be sure to head over to The Teaching Tribune to see other ideas and to link up your own.
Can't wait to see them all.

no other excuses:) just laziness.

So, I'm happy to say that it's up today.
Today's verse is James 1:17a and comes with word cards to rebuild the verse,
 a coloring sheet and a writing prompt.
