I met the 2 Sisters!!!! Plus, Life Cycles!

I seriously couldn't be anymore excited about the weekend I just experienced!  I left school at noon on Friday and traveled to Chicago with two awesome colleagues to see the 2 Sisters, the Daily 5 Creators, the Masters of Language Arts Instruction!!!!  OH MY!  I LOVE them!  How many of you teach using the Daily 5 and CAFE?  I have been using it for 3 years now and you will never get me to go back!  If you have never had a chance to attend a Daily 5 and CAFE conference, I highly recommend.  They are just awesome and funny too!  It was such a great day!  As you can see, I am so proud!!!!

I also just wanted to share a peek of what we have been doing in Science.  Life cycles are so much fun to teach and the kids love it!  Here is a picture of what we did last week as we wrapped up our butterfly life cycles.  I purchased an awesome life cycles unit from Amy Lemons and used it along with some of my ideas.  LOVE Amy Lemons!  I also highly recommend!  Look her up on TPT.

Summer break is just around the corner!  If you are like me, you are starting to panic as you think about all the things that need to be done before you send on your little darlings....assessments, grades, awards, gifts, parties, end of year books, etc.!  Busy! Busy! Busy!  Good luck to you all!
