Happy Spring! {and a freebie}

We are 2 days away from officially starting our Spring Break!!!  I think everyone is ready for a week off.  The noise level in my room is elevating and so is my blood pressure!

We just finished up our quarterly math assessment yesterday and I promised the class that we would do a rabbit and duck craft when the testing was done. 

So I took a deep breath and we got busy!


First we colored and cut out the rabbit.  And then added a cotton ball for the tail.  (not in this picture)


Then we colored and cut out the duck.


We glued the two sides together with a large craft stick in the middle. Then we read the cute little poem on each side.

The kids loved making this and were so excited to take it home!  One of my students found a great use for the finished craft.  She said that she could use it for her church fan!




Yay for Spring,

  6. I love that you gave your kids a craft to do after a stressful assessment! Cutting along lines is a life-long skill that kids miss out on nowadays with all our curriculum content!
