Not only does that mean a little break, it also means time for Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday!
I'll start the count with some class goings on.
Number 1 is Earth Day. On Monday we did a little Earth Day writing craftivity. We started by brainstorming a list of ways to help the Earth. My sweeties came up with some fabulous ideas. Then they completed the project. They turned out really cute. If you would like a free copy of this activity, you can click on the picture.
Number 2 is field trip fun. We went on our last field trip of the year to a local animal park. The kids had a wonderful time. Since it is spring there were lots of adorable babies. I really had to stop myself from putting this little baby pig in my jacket pocket. It was born only hours before we arrived. So cute!
Number 3 puts a large lump in my throat, count down to kindergarten. I can not believe the time is almost here. A is ready but I am not. In my mind she is still a little baby. Time marchs on and I better get in step.
Number 4 is new sandals. My friend had a pair of Sseko sandals on the other day. Of course a discussion ensued. They are sandals that have interchangable ribbons that you can tie in all different configurations. Cool right? Even better the company that makes them is a fair trade organization based in Uganda and commited to helping the women of that country. After checking them out for myself, I had to order a pair. You can take a look by clicking on the picture below.
Number 5 is my favorite dress of the season. J. Crew's factory site has this sweet little dress in solid colors and in this polka dot print. I think it is simple enough to live on for many springs to come. It is one of those styles I will want in every color.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.
