Raindrop alphabet and some lucky leprechauns

This has been a busy week. We have been preparing for Fallas and St. Patrick. I used this easy printable with my secondgraders before our tests.
I have included English-Spanish and capital letters too. Enjoy! 

They love everything crafty! :)

 I also loved our Leprechaun directed drawing. Jennifer is an artist. And this was just perfect for my Art lessons in English.

We needed three 45 minutes lessons to complete them. But the results are worth it!
We draw them with pencils and colored with watercolors. On the last day they traced them with the black markers. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Bye bye Fall

We have been working on Proper Nouns and Common nouns. If you have been following for a while you know that I would not miss the opportunity to create a craft. So we created these Fall trees and I asked the kids to classify the nouns (Proper Nouns on the left/Common Nouns on the right). We also added the definition in the little boxes.
Get the pattern here (English & Spanish). I added some blank leaves to write their own nouns.
On the other hand I finished my Fall crafts with the first grade classrooms. I love being the Art Teacher! We created cute Fall leaves in a very short session. 
First we glued a leave in the middle of a yellow paper. Then added some colorful strips of paper as borders. 
The kids added the eyes made of punched circles and drew the arms and legs. It worked great and they were really proud of them! :)

I did not invented this craft myself I just used a cheap version of this one leaf people from Mess for Less.

Halloween party!

We have been having fun all week! We started with a scary story on Monday. It is included in my Ordinals pack. It is a ghost story to review ordinals. The kids loved being able to change the little boy faces.

Today we earned a big celebration. 
I told my kids that my grandma was a witch and she left me a brew recipe. I have shared a blank pattern so you can create your own. :)
We filled ours and then we moved on with the brew.
We started our brew! If you are interested in the witch craftivity check out the previous post.
 
To set the table I used IKEA plates, glasses, napkins and confetti. It was quite cheap. With every step we added it to our recipe.
All the ingredients were pretty simple: milk, sugar, yogurt, cocoa, nutella, cream… 
Each kid got a small glass with brew. They loved it!
Don’t forget our GIVEAWAY!!!
