Spring, Sprang, Sprung- Five For Friday!!

Spring has Sprung this week in Colorado!! The fact that I can walk around in capris and flip flops and NO jacket in sight for the past two days has me loving life right now! I was busy playing outside after school yesterday with one of my best friends, so how about a little Five For Friday on a Saturday?

We wrapped our our Weather Is Wild Unit this week! On Thursday there were so many different cloud types in the sky that my kiddos begged me to bring out the cloud viewers from our lesson on Cloud Types. Sometimes, it's so easy to make them happy! :)

We also had a special visit from Mr. Joel who is a real live Weather Man living here in Colorado. He also happens to be my cousin, and he was nice enough to come present to my class who all made him sign many autographs before he left.If you're ever in the snowy caps of Colorado looking for ski conditions, you should check out his website:

On Tuesday my kids earned their Ice Cream Pie through their Persuasive writing skills. Read more about the this *sweet* lesson here and grab these three P.I.E. posters below for free here!

Yesterday the boring brown classroom closets which have been begging for a splash of color since the last craft came down became plastered with gold as we made our Leprechauns from my Leapin' Leprechauns pack. Bling bling!!

This lad said they're lucky because "I have a nice and cool classroom!" which makes me happy!!

Speaking of luck, it was my lucky day when I came home yesterday to see my new phone cover had arrived. It makes me happy every time I see it. Even cooler - I won an Erin Condren gift card and a bar of chocolate with my order!! That was an extra little fun surprise for me!

That's my week in a nut shell. 


Off to go work on one of my many Spring packs I have in the works. I love teaching Spring units! Here's a sneak peak at my MEGA Plant Unit that is in the editing phase- yay!! I can't wait to get started with this one. I'll be back with many more pics to share with you tomorrow!


  1. I love that EC phone cover! Looks like you had a great week of learning..enjoy your weekend sweet girl!

  2. Congrats!!! Love that EC phone cover! Kinda love EvErYtHiNg EC!!!

    AND we love to ski - we don't head out to CO often enough, but my husband is a fanatic about checking the ski conditions out west and probably already knows about your cousin's site. I'll be sure to share in case he doesn't. :)
