So, so glad it's Friday, and one week closer to Spring Break!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday and TBA with a freebie (scroll down to number 4).  Here are my five!

1. We celebrated Read Across America this week.  I saw the idea for these hats from Khrys.  Today kids were able to come as their favorite book character, and we made these so students without a costume wouldn't feel left out.  They loved them!

2. Here's another fun thing we did for Read Across America.  Using "Cat Cam" we made these pictures and used them for writing inspiration. 
3. We didn't do as much with Dr. Seuss this year, because I was also trying to prepare my students for a Charlotte's Web play that came to our school on Thursday.  We didn't have a chance to read the whole book, but we read enough for them to have a sense of the characters.  The play was wonderful!  I love the story and they stayed very true to it.  I teared up a little when Charlotte died.

4. We also began to prepare for a leprechaun visit.  We wrote letters to the leprechauns telling them all the wonderful green, gold, and rainbow stuff they can find in our room.  (Click the picture to download the writing page.)

5. Last but not least, be sure to check out Traci's Lucky 7 Giveaway - 7 chances to win.  You could win some great products from TpT stores (including an item of the winner's choice from my store) and Traci is also giving away gift certificates for clip art!  You can enter now through St. Patrick's Day.  Good luck!
