I'm just going to cut and paste the rules right here so you all know what to do should you feel like joining in:)
Definitely that I'm on Spring break for the first two weeks of it. :) I love having the time to sit around in my pajamas, read interesting blog posts, watch my puppies snoozing on the sofas, watch oldie goldie movies - so much fun!! And I just LOVE the weather at this time of the year - sunny but cool and so spring-like!
April in my Classroom:
This term we begin our big unit on the Aztecs so the classroom has been stripped down to nothingness once again and we will begin building the Aztec civilization on the bulletin boards - and in fact all over the room. I tell my children constantly that the classroom displays are their responsibility - they have to produce or we'll have an empty, boring classroom. Without fail they rise to the challenge! I'm still not sure how we'll approach the topic this year - we may build a full-size Aztec house, an enormous temple, a miniature empire... the possibilities are endless :)
April Must Have:
I am totally stuck on this one! Honestly I can't think of any "must haves". I am pretty content with my life at the moment. Perhaps some "motivation" would be nice. Wish it could be sold in pill form so I could motivate myself to get out there and exercise!!
|This'll work :)|
April Make It:
Aha - now this is easier! I have just finished a Math unit yesterday and it is in my store! I am very pleased with myself. I still have huge plans to work on (and hopefully finish) several other partially completed units but at least I've done one. :)

I would also really like to make these as an Earth Day activity. Not sure if I can borrow the PTA ovens but I am going to check into it. These are just so pretty!!

new crayons - recycling for Earth
I am (and this is a DEFINITE) going into school to clean out the black hole (otherwise known as a resource cupboard) behind my desk. By the time school starts I should have a beautifully organized cupboard with neat little boxes of Math center activities etc. I need a place to store all my glittery Math gems plus endless center activities that right now are sprawling all over miscellaneous surfaces.
|These need a home!|
To keep myself accountable I will post about it when it's done :)
Head on over to Mrs. Kelly's Klass and read some of the other posts!
