Why does March have to have both St. Patrick's AND Easter in it? It creates SUCH a busy month. Then with spring break right around the corner...there's just never enough time to do it all. Maybe we just need to add leprechaun hats to Easter bunnies and combine it all! :)
Friends, let me tell you...there are SOOO many great products on TpT, and freebies on blogs that I need more time in my day. (I think I said that last week!) I want to do it ALL!
Last week, I started a few St. Patrick's things, and I'm going to finish things up on Monday. I wish I had remembered to take pictures, but I was observed on Friday so I was doing good to get through my day. Even after all these years of teaching, I still get VERY nervous when someone walks in to observe me. Last year, my principal asked me a few times if I would let people observe me during my guided reading/centers, and I told him I get butterflies when people watch me. Why do I let it bother me? Are any of you like that?
If any of you are still looking for something to do for St. Patrick's day, I have a post HERE of things I was/am using. We also did the Leprechaun, Leprechaun emergent reader. My kids LOVE these little books. As a matter of fact, a few of them asked me, "Will we get to do an Easter Bunny, Easter Bunny?" I'm a sucker--so guess what I'm working on. I hope to get that posted today, so if you're not following me on Facebook please make sure you do as that's where I will post when it's finished! :)

I also updated a file from last year. I've added new stations, and some cute graphics. If you have time, check it out! :)
It's geared for first/second grade--and it's Common Core Aligned. I wrote the standards on each direction page for stations.

Now for the freebie. Last year, I put this on as a freebie on my FB page.
This year, I'm sharing with all of you! Enjoy! :)

A lot of time goes into making products, and it really encourages bloggers/sellers to continue with freebies when feedback is left.
