The Tiny Seed

It's finally spring! 
A GREAT spring classroom read is Eric Carle's book The Tiny Seed.
It takes us along on a seed's journey as it blows off of a plant and gets planted itself, growing into its own seed-bearing flower. 

Other seeds that fall from the plant have different fates- they may get eaten by birds or dried up by the sun. And those seeds that do make it to full-grown plants may be stepped on or be picked by people. This story makes students consider what seeds need to grow.

I have created a pack to go along with the book The Tiny Seed. It includes book activities as well as scientific teaching with photos of the life cycle of a plant.

How to Catch the Easter Bunny!

How to Catch the Easter Bunny by Adam Wallace is a FANTASTIC book to share with your students around Easter! 
It's by the same author as How to Catch a Leprechaun!
It tells of kids who devise various plans and traps to trick the Easter Bunny, trying to catch him for his basket of goodies!

I love how this book sparks creativity and plan-making while being FUN :)

I've made some supplement activities to go along with this class favorite. It's packed with fun ideas and guided reading literacy activities, and is Common Core aligned.

I Can Statement Charts

I've always loved having a focus board where I can display what we're working on in class. It's a great reminder for the students...and for me :)
Classroom Focus Board / Classroom Objective Board to display what you're learning in class and to share learning goals. A purposeful bulletin board idea! #bulletinboards #focusboard #objectiveboard #classroomsetup #1stgrade #2ndgrade #classroomdecor #backtoschool #teachereyecandy
I've heard others call it an objective board, or an anchor chart display...but whatever you call it, it serves the same purpose!

I made a set of I Can Statement posters to go with the second grade Common Core standards. Then I made some for first grade...and recently I added Kindergarten! They're kid-friendly, and have the standards written on them for quick reference. 

I LOVE the 'I Can' language- it's so positive and encouraging for young learners!

Here's what they look like:
