Happy Belated Earth Day!

Happy Belated Earth Day everyone! I thoroughly enjoyed reading books about the 3 R's- reduce, reuse, and recycle. Take this FREE literacy center as a Bang! Variation game... Why didn't I think of this before?

"We got the whole world in our hands" idea from Pinterest

Is it really almost May?! Well to kick of the lovely weather we have been having in Ohio (because we all know it could be WORSE), here are some more freebies just for you. Last week, we continued to explore plants and... as a small excuse to get outside, we went on a nature hunt! This is a great way for students to explore, read, and document what they see outside. If you don't want your students to draw what they see with crayons... I can see the dilemma with that- have them draw with a pencil. Another option would be for students to just check off what they see in nature and/or take actual pictures of their observations! (Click book to see on Amazon)


  1. Thank you for sharing this cute *freebie* and a new book for me to check out. =)

    Be sure and add a follow button when you get the chance. Go to design at the top of your blog and then layout. Choose add a gadget and then more gadgets. The follow button is the last on the page , #25. I would LOVE to follow you. =)

    I would love for you to hop over and visit me when you get the chance. I am a 1st grade teacher too. =)
