Is it Spring yet?

My para's creative side is definitely in full swing now.  She has almost the whole hallway decorated!  She just completed our spring styled door cover as well as a floral mural!   Here are a few pictures of the flower garden mural:

 Look at those roses!  Isn't she amazing?!  She's added a few insects to this as well as a sun and clouds; I will post an updated picture soon!  We are working on creating some rainbows and bumble bees to add to her St. Patrick's Day and Bee Hive displays.

To tag on to get Spring fever I have created a Word Family recording sheet.  I am using this in my room a few times a week.  Since I have removed our Counting to 100 Days Tree, I hung a chart where that was and we are using it to make word family words.  I pre-write the ending 6 times.  I then ask students to think of a letter that they could put in front of the ending to make a word.  They then find the letter and put it right in front of the ending on the chart.  Once we have the six words the students go back to their seat and write them on this paper:
You can download your copy of this sheet for FREE by clicking on the image.  Happy March!
