Oh Yeah, I've Got Spring Fever

Ah, the first day back to school after Spring Break.  It was soooo good to see all my little guys again and hear all about their adventures over break.  We shared laughs, had an awesome math discussion about polygons, worked on suffixes and played some of my March Madness activities in small groups. That being said, I'm now quite tired :)

While today was a good day overall, I should mention we had indoor recess.

All day. 

Because it was snowy outside.

Say whaaaat?  It's March 25!  I want to feel the sunshine on my face and see flowers blooming! (and have the kids run off some energy outside...)  Lucky for me, Amanda over at Mrs. Pauley's Kindergarten has started the cuuuuutest Spring Fever Giveaway and I was fortunate enough to participate along with some amazing bloggers! Have a look below at these creative lessons and activities that YOU could win! I contributed the Springtime Math Activities (full of bright and fun math to chase away those winter blahs), and the other products from fellow teacher bloggers are so darling and creative. The giveaway starts today and runs through midnight on Saturday, March 31st.
