Since it's Spring, A and I made my bird's nest cookies.
I'm sure you've seen them before, but just in case you haven't...
You need only 4 things to make these:
1/2 bag of choc chips
1/2 bag of butterscotch chips
3/4 bag of chow mein noodles
and peanut M&Ms or the robin's eggs Whoppers
Melt the two chips, stir in the noodles, then scoop them onto wax paper. Make a little dent and put in your eggs.
Easy peasy, right??
Now onto school stuff.....
Each month, I do an author study with my students. Along with integrated math, writing, and reading activities, my students complete this Tic Tac Toe, taking A.R. quizzes. Do you remember the Dr. Seuss one I posted for March??
Here is this month's author - I LOVE Laura Numeroff!

There are three different versions - Accelerated Reader, Reading Counts, and for those schools who don't have either, there is a Parent Signature page.
I'm in the midst of creating/updating my unit for her author study...I'm taking what I already do, jazz it up with clip art (my new addiction) and putting it all in one file - well, I'll separate it like I always do, but you get my drift.
So far, there are SIX math centers:
~Perfect Breakfast Graphing
~Double Digit Donuts Addition
~Muffin Madness; expanded form
~Theme Park Numbers; word form
~Snack Time! (15, 30, 45, and o'clock!)
And I have a few of the lit ones finished so far - /oo/ sound, contractions, and syllables. I have a few more Reading/Writing to add. Hopefully, I'll be finished in a few days.
I don't know though, we are having BE-A-UUUUUU-TEE-Ful beach weather :)
