April Linky....Another first for me!!

I decided to try out my first Linky Party from Mrs. Kelly's Klass.

Here are her instructions below:
Here it goes!

1. April Favorite:  My favorite thing about this month is most certainly all of the chocolate. Though I'm not sure it's different than any other month for me. I consume a lot of chocolate (and Diet Coke).

2.  This April in my classroom:  I have started doing more inquiry based learning and this month my students are interested in plays.  They have created a play and will be performing it, making the set and props and anything else involved with the play making process. There is a lot of excitement in my room right now!

3: April Must Have:  New clothes! I've lost 60 lbs since giving birth to my son and last years spring clothes no longer fit. YAY new clothes!

4.  April Make It: I want to make an anchor chart like this one from acupcakefortheteacher! 

5: April Goal:  My goal for April is to have one sale on my TPT store! 

One Blog I know and love is 2nd Grade Shenanigans!  Her blog is amazing and has so many great ideas.

Here are two blogs that are new to me that I am enjoying browsing through:

The first one is Mrs. Kelly's Klass! I just found her blog and joined this Linky party.  She has a super cute blog with a lot of great ideas.

The second one is from a new blogger who is exploring play based learning in Kindergarten.  I am also exploring play based learning with my grade ones and twos so I am watching her blog with interest. http://kimclarkkindercritters.blogspot.ca/

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I always lust after those fancy anchor charts! One time I made mine with my iPod right on the rocking chair in class tuned in to Pinterest so I could make it the same - still didn't turn out as cute!

  5. Thanks Jessica! I do love me some shopping. And this year the spring clothes are super cute. I just bought a really cute blue and white polka spotted sleeveless shirt and a few other springy shirts. Now I just need the weather to cooperate so I can wear them!
