Canoeing Fun and Feelings

Hey y'all! If your summer break is here, I hope you're enjoying every minute. If you're still in school, I hope you're surviving the last few days. I know they're busy days!

In my last post, I said I was going to do something fun because I've been working so hard in this class. Well, we did just that! We went on our first canoeing trip. There are two options of going down the spring. You can go on a canoe or in a tube. I think we were the only folks in canoes. We definitely want to go again! 

I shared the pictures on Instagram. My kids were only in the boat long enough to take a picture. I didn't allow my 13 year old to canoe with the girls. Instead, I let him paddle me around for a while. Needless to say, we got stopped by several stumps that were in the water. :)

 We ended our day by getting Sonic shakes after dinner. If you wait until after 8 pm here, they are half price! Yum! 

Onto something school related. 

Let me start by saying that I have fallen in love with Melonheadz clip art!! I have only bought two sets, but I have several sets on my wishlist. 

When I saw the set of clip art for feelings, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them. 

I have found that most of my first graders have a hard time identifying their feelings or the feelings of a character in a story. I made posters to hang in my classroom to help with the understanding that we/characters can be more than happy or sad. 
There are nine posters with four printable options. You can pick yellow chevron, yellow polka dots, red chevron, or red polka dots. 
I'm printing the yellow set for my room. They are so bright and cheery! I love 'em!  

If you'd like to win a set, leave a comment and your email address. I will pick a winner tomorrow. 

I had my mother-in-law pick a number, so 
Michelle Jaquillard is the winner! Thank you for commenting! :)
