Trade & Grade!

Welcome back to Trade & Grade!
Amanda over at The Primary Gal is AMAZING at organizing all these fun parties!

This month I was super lucky to be paired up with my friend Abbey over at A Teacher Mom!
We switched products and now I get to share it with you!
{plus there may be a freebie for you at the end!}

Her pack comes with lots of different choices and really keeps the kids engaged!
Plus she uses adorable clipart!!! :)
My kids LOVED them all!
I used these games as centers for my kiddos during reading groups.
This game was a Real & Nonsense Word Sort.
My kids love all the silly nonsense words!!

I loved that Abbey's pack includes a recording sheet as well!!
(I didn't get a picture of it!!) 

The next game is a closed and open syllable sort.  
I love that they have to read AND write the words!

Abbey's pack also includes an I Have, Who Has game.
This was a favorite!
I Have, Who Has is probably the most popular game with my kids.
They just love it!!

Here is a Bingo game!
We played this in small reading groups.
After we played the first day, they BEGGED me to play for the rest of the week!!

This game was super fun too!
The kids have to use the letters to make words.
Each letter has a number, so after they make the word, they have to add up the numbers!
They seriously loved this!!
They love, love, love adding with 3 or more addends! :)

The next game is a Memory game.
They've been asking to play it every time they get a chance! 

Abbey's pack is wonderful!  Thank you so much for sharing it, Abbey!!
She was kind enough to put together this sample, so that YOU can try it too!!

Earth Day!

We've spent the last few days talking A LOT about Earth Day!
I sent a little Earth Day Challenge home with the kids.
They have to keep track of all the things they do to reduce, reuse, and recycle!
They are really getting into it!!

We wrote Earth Day poems last week.

Today we planted!!
I had those little hard soil pellets that you add water to.
 I think they thought that watching the soil grow was more interesting than planting the seeds!! :)

We planted marigold seeds for Mother's Day.

Here's our little green house!! 

Happy Earth Day!

Five for Friday!

Five for Friday!
Link up with Doodle Bugs to share about your week!

This week has been both long and sad.  
I had planned to do this post last night, but I was asleep at 5:30!

My sweet gramma passed away this week :(
As hard as it has been, I was reminded about how lucky I am to have 
the most amazing family and boyfriend 
and to work with the most loving, caring people.  

 My flowers are starting to bloom!
I. Love. Spring.

Our turkeys are back!

My kids had a blast making these Earth Day projects!
You can grab it here!

We had to follow the clues to find eggs on Friday!
Boy, were they excited!!!

I also had these for them. 
The little tags are from my friend Kristina's store.
Aren't they the cutest?!

Have a happy Easter :)
