Our Fun and Productive week and a FREEBIE!

Let me tell you, it has been an exciting and productive week over here in room 219!
Even though we are COUNTING DOWN the days until the end of the school year, my students are staying engaged, and motivated! (Don't worry, they are loud and crazy too, but they're still working.. and that's all that matters!!)

They are LOVING their Narnia lapbooks that I have bragged so much about. But I can't help it, I love seeing their motivation! So here's a glimpse into what we've done this week with them and other things!:

We are more than halfway through our Vocab flipbook, Settings are colored with captions and quotes to support, our About the Authors are done, are Social Grams are completed, our Making Connections Pockets are assembled and completed, and our Cause and Effect foldables are done! WHEW.. we worked hard this week :) Onto finish the book next week with these skills in the lapbook: Figurative Language, Symbolism, Summary, and Theme.
{This is my kiddos new FAV thing to do; Open their "Wardrobe Doors" and "go into Narnia!" before we read. I LOVE <3 their creative minds!}

In celebration of my kiddos doing such a wonderful job on these, and end of the years wrapping up meaning preparing for next year, these Narnia lapbooks will be 20% off in my TPT store until Tuesday! That means you can get this entire 4-6 week common core aligned unit for only $5.60!

Some other things that happened this week:

 I got to play in our fun, awesome beach volleyball league! We are 9-0:)
I love my nail lady, she is so creative :)

Morning runs went from 80 degrees, to 40 degrees in two days. Really Ohio?! :)
I finally caved and went to the Scholastic Warehouse sale.. 82 books later, haha woops! My hubs loves me still though ;)

Lastly, I wanted to leave y'all with a FREEBIE for Memorial Day! Here are Veterans Templates to write three types of poems for Memorial Day: Haiku, Cinquain, and Rhyme poem with your kiddos!

Don't forget about a few end of year projects you can do with your kiddos. Our next two weeks will be busy! We will be finishing up Narnia lapbooks next week, then doing this Father's Day Craftivity and Splash into Figurative Language pack. We will be doing our "Snapshots of My Year" books the last week of school, and The End of Year Awards are for our Awards Day :)
Linking up with some amazing linky parties, of course!
