What Better Way to Combat “Testing Blues” Than With a Fun Mother’s Day Project?

What better way to combat “testing blues” than with a fun Mother’s Day project?! Mother’s day can be a really happy time for many children–or a sad time, if children do not have a mom at home. This 50-page best-selling packet includes the main “flowers in a vase” craftivity, along with tons of other options–all for “mom,” “mommy,” “grandma,” “mum,” or for whomever else your children choose.



What Would You Change if YOU Could Create Your Own Country?

This is a Great End of the Year Hands-on Project! Newly updated and improved with informational articles, vocabulary words with posters, and engaging student activities related to all the different themes such as culture, flag facts, climates, housing, natural resources, agriculture, transportation (and more) of this creative hands-on project.



I LOVE these ideas! Thank you for reading! Please let us know if you use, or plan to use, any of these in your own classrooms! We love to hear from readers!

Giveaway at Savvy Teaching Tips

Here’s what’s up with Sandra’s Savvy Teaching Tips.

Happy Saturday! I hope you’re relaxing and getting a chance to enjoy the weekend. It’s pouring rain here in Vancouver this morning, but hopefully things will dry out for my children’s baseball games this afternoon.

I had the chance to participate in a fun product swap hosted by Melissa over at Jungle Learners.


This time around I was partnered with Lisa from Second Grade Stories. I feel very lucky to have been partnered with her.  When I looked around her store, I think I wishlisted half of it.  She has a real science focus which I love.   And check out how cute her blog is.  I’m so happy that I found another great teacher-blogger to follow.   

I’ve only just started using this great unit with my kiddos.  But here’s a quick summary of the great stuff included.

Want your own copy?
Lisa has graciously offered up a copy for you to win.
