lately and a freebie :)

We have been some busy little bees lately! It's crazy to think that there are only 36 more days left of school OR 6 more Mondays of school! :)  That is so exciting and nerve racking at the same time.  Still a lot to squeeze in!

We spent two weeks learning about plants and how to grow plants.  Here a few things we did:

Then, we got our lima beans and began our four-week seed observation.  Here are our "greenhouses" hanging in our windows!

Our bean seeds are days away from needing to be planted into our soil pots!  It's always a SUPER exciting time when we open up our papertowels to see our sprouted bean seeds! Every day is more exciting as our roots continue to grow!

In math we have been learning about 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes.  We first did the marshmellow and toothpick hands-on activity.  Of course we had a blast AND I forgot my camera! 
For the 2-D activity we created "Shape Creations!" For this we used 2-D die cut shapes.  We then used the shapes to create our own creations and then completed a corresponding recording sheet. 
Here's a few that we created:

And here's the recording sheet for FREE:
The fun plant activities are just two from my Spring Fever unit.  You can find at my TPT Store along with my brand new Flat Stanley Unit!!!!!!! :)  
{heart} some Flat Stanley! 

Today is the start of a very super busy week! Phew! I'm tired thinking about it.  Hope you're week goes just as well!
