Five for Friday and some Freebies!

Rainy Saturday to you friends! It is just nasty weather here in Tx :/ what is the cure for that? Netflix? Snuggle in a blanket? ummm HOBBY LOBBY! ha! I am trying hard to be proactive and get my Easter goodies completed before it creeps up on me.
Jumping right in...

Over spring break I had a chance to go help the church prepare for their 6th bday celebration and stuff Easter eggs for the Easter celebration coming up. I had a lot of fun! And didn't eat one piece!! 

We have been diving into Fairy Tales again this year. Here are two charts I made and used last year that were very helpful as we explored different fairy tales. We first wrote down the elements we knew they had in them on the castle. Then on the large chart we kept track of the fairy tales we have read so far and what elements we noticed. We also have the kids use a graphic organizer that is a mini version of the large chart to record their findings. 

I ordered some books from scholastic the other day and after they came in I was able to look through them. They are PERFECT for giving to the kids to use in book bags, small group, buddy or read to self! You can't tell but there like 20! and they were cheap!

We finished money before spring break and I whipped up this little assessment to check for their understanding of adding mixed coins and being able to make a set of coins.

As I said, I am trying to be good about getting some of my Easter stuff done a little early. So I made these little cards to help with that! Hope you enjoy and can use!

Not to end on a sad note but one of my co-workers her son is missing. I can not even begin to imagine the heartache associated with something like this. However, knowing how small the world can be at times I wanted to share this info. Please cover them in prayer for this difficult time. Only God truly knows the answers and we can continue to send our prayers up to HIM so that the family may know answers as well. 

Have a BLESSED weekend!
