Saturday Snippets: 03/22/14

As Abby would say...
What a week folks. It started off with a bang. We came off of Spring break and hit St. Patrick's day in the face!
This little quick and cute activity was a perfect "take-home" activity to help reinforce those position words. 
Kids manipulated the leprechaun around the rainbow and learned the words over, under, above, below, beside, next to, in between, around, on, off, etc...
Here is one in action.
Couldn't resist making these cutie Smorgasbord hats with my Firsties. 
They thought it was excellent, too bad I forgot the gold in the pot!
Then we ALL contributed to our list...
and made an interactive reader to take home to color and share. 
Here was my Kinder craft for the week...
and the Firstie craft. Which in reality is 3 different crafts put together.
As if that wasn't enough mid week I decided that I didn't want to make a boring list of position and preposition words. So I scrambled to make a last minute cave and snatched a bear off of my Zoo bulletin board set to make copies of on brown paper.
Kids cut out the bears and wrote the words on the bears. 
Easy Peezy!
Is so much cuter than I imagined.
Finally, we ended the week with a wedding. Two weddings to be exact because I have two Kinder ELL groups. 
First thing is first, the decor. It really doesn't compare to Maria's wedding, but I really didn't have much time to prep. Have to admit her pack made my life sooooooo easy! She did all the work for me.
Here is how it all went down.
We had a down and dirt, quick wedding and party. I mean The Little White Wedding Chapel couldn't have done it faster. Ha ha.
As the kids worked on their wedding crowns
we listened to The Dixie Cups, Going to the Chapel song.
Once we were ready for the ceremony to begin the Wedding March began and our bride and groom made it to the front of the room.
I printed these on an 11x17 tag sheet, had them laminated and cut out. I wrapped a popsicle stick in some left over ribbon and attached with some glue dots!
Our grooms (all the gentlemen) and brides (all the ladies) said "I do" together after the "officiator" (me)  stated the vows. After the I do's and I pronounced the husband and wife I got several cheers for a kiss. LOL These kids crack me up.
You know what happens after a wedding right?
A party!
Get your filthy minds out of the gutter, these are 5 year olds. Bahahahahaha. The kids got to dance to Bruno Mars Marry You and Pharell's Happy. In the end even our bride and groom were exhausted. :)
Here is a little funny. Yesterday, the Superintendent of my district visited our school. He has a no jeans policy so we were told that we could wear jeans on Friday, but that admin would not be and so the staff decided they wouldn't either. I was pretty surprised. So the moment he was out of the building, I shucked off my boots and put on these babies. :)
During the wedding party, as I was taking pictures, this little cutie runs up to me and says...
"Look, Ms. We are the same!"
It was so adorable I had to take a snap.
Alright folks that is all I have to say for the day.
Don't forget you have one last day to enter my giveaway!
