We are culminating our penguin studies, preparing for our Math Benchmark, and Testing for Report Cards!
It’s all so exciting. We are SO SMART!
I am pretty sure I am the last teacher on Earth studying penguins, but maybe this will help you prepare for next year?! 🙂
Today we made these Emperor Penguins!
We also wrapped up our book study on THE EMPEROR’S EGG!
They KNOCKED my socks off with their learning!!!
We also read TONS of favorite penguin books (Tacky included of course!) and used these penguin themed reading responses!
We are preparing for our Math Benchmark. We feel prepared to take THE BIG TEST! It’s fun when we get to prepare with Math Centers! Our benchmark test is Thursday! One more day of practice before…It’s ON!

Finally…I want to invite you to a Spring Break Blogger Get Together! Farley from Oh Boy Fourth Grade and I are hosting a get together at The Lion and Rose in San Antonio on Wednesday March 14th at 5:30. We had such fun last time and hope a few more friends will come out! Here’s the website link to the restaurant. (I am the body double for the girl lying across the bar—kidding!)
We are going to be out on the patio so we can gab and eat and GAB!!! CAN’T WAIT!
Please let one of us know if you can come! We already heard from Jennifer at Rowdy in First Grade! She is going to try to come! Fingers crossed- I adore her!
Finally….I am ready to link up with Farley for March Currently! (but now I just realized how L-O-N-G this post has gotten..I hope you are still reading this!)

You've been busy! Love all the penguin stuff.

WOW. My sixth graders couldn't score that well on your rubric!
And… A ream of printing?
Do you have the most super dooper printer on the planet?!
If I were trying to print that many pages, you would be able to hear me at your house (from my house in CA) as I was yelling at the mangled paper jams!
I love that you love your "cozied up" little family.
That thought just makes my whole heart happy.
Now I went from being mad at my printer (which was resting peacefully through this comment) to being all sappy about your family.
I must need more ice cream.
Loved all of your pics. Thanks for the Deluxe post!

Cute idea! If you get a chance head over to my new 2nd grade blog. http://secondgradeperks.blogspot.com/

Your penguin pack is in my wishlist cart on TpT. I already taught penguins but I will be getting that for next year.
2 things that don't go together— printing TPT stuff and no film in the laminator- that's what I call a crisis!!! I hope it gets solved SOON!! 🙂
In the mean time, stop by my blog- I blogged about the Looking for a Leprechaun activity. It was a BLAST!!! A new fav. of mine and will be using for years to come!!! 🙂
Let's Teach Something
Heather's Heart says
Do you teach Bridges? Have I asked you this before? Am I losing my mind??!!!???
I know the answers to the last 2 questions are a BIG Texas YES!!!!!
I would love to come to SA….but it is a 4-5 hour drive. Yes, you and Farley are worth it but I bet either of you want me for a house guest. I am not as tiny as Ms. TEENY but I can curl up into a small ball.
Do you dare to share how much you spend on ink?!???!!!???
Jen R. @ The Teachers' Cauldron says
ok, bummed I'm missing y'all AGAIN!!
Also, I just tried updating my roll with your new button, but it still shows the old pic of your old button…hmmmm
