This week I'm linking up with Mrs. Reed's Let's Get Acquainted Linky and sharing my three favorite areas in our classroom.
I hope that everyone is having a wonderful spring. Today was our first really nice, warm spring day, and I was loving it! Especially since we didn't have our typical spring vacation week this year. We ended up having to go to school three out of five of our vacation days to make up for some of the many snow days we had this winter. I am definitely looking forward to getting the patio set back out on the deck and enjoying the sunshine! =)

April? Seriously? Pause button please. We had a very lovely Easter this weekend. We cooked a nice dinner at our house with my mother-in-law. My own mother is currently on vacation in Washington, D.C. so we didn't have our typical egg hunt for the kiddos. We'll have that when Granny returns from her trip. Even with such a relaxing weekend Monday is back and I'm exhausted! I'm thinking it's from all of the hard work we're doing in class. ;) We are chin-deep in our fractions unit, and presently reviewing before our unit assessment on Wednesday. Once we finish up with fractions we're moving on the geometry. I have to say that this year's class has really enjoyed fractions much more than classes I've had in the past have. Two resources that I have used along with my fractions resources/lessons are:
These two were worth every penny! My class has really enjoyed digging deeper into our math notebooks, and they keep asking to play fractions tic tac toe. The hands-on activities in More Time 2 Teach's unit were excellent!
I suppose it's time to swap out our seasonal writing prompts. I use these for my students who are fast finishers. Time to take out my April prompts I suppose!
Sorry for the glare by the window...
Speaking of April, I've linked up with Farley for this month's currently.
Happy Spring! =)
