Fort Mac Donation Stories

By now you have heard about the mandatory evacuation of Fort McMurray in Alberta. They had a horrible forrest fire go through their city, causing many to lose their homes. They are still without power in large portions of the city, and no one knows for sure when they will be allowed back to collect their things to either move on or rebuild.


There have been SO many heart warming stories to come out of this tragedy.
People across the country are doing what they can to do donate things residents lost and to help them get back on their feet.

Refugees from Syria are collecting money, clothes and more to send to Fort Mac Evacuees.
Bridal gowns have been donated so brides can still get married this week.
Prom dresses are being donated so grads can still have a memorable prom at the end of the month at their temporary high schools.

My friend and former coworker left with nothing but the clothes on her back, Her car was abandoned on the side of the road when it ran out of gas. She returned home to Nova Scotia to wait it out.

Tomorrow On May 16th, a group of teacherpreneurs on Teachers Pay Teachers are donating ALL proceeds from their stores to the Canadian Red Cross or another charity. Most are choosing the Red Cross because the government is matching donations, which is above and beyond what they will already be providing.


Click on the links to each seller who is participating to find the products you need for the end of the year, or to start preparing for next year. (My store is #10, or click HERE)

Mothers Day prep 2016



I'm sure most of you have SOME idea of what your class is doing next week. But if not, here's some inspiration!



Last year my class made Hugs and we shared a video of the class singing a song for their moms too a local Facebook group. It was SO cute. And SO easy. My class had very little attention span, so it was perfect for them.



I don't seem to have managed to take a picture of the teapots my class made the year before. But they were SO cute! Folded card stock and a teabag tucked inside.

This MAY be the template I used, but I'm not sure. There are many samples of this online. Click on the image to find it in her store.
Mother's Day Teapot & Cup Craftivity

Done these two ideas and looking for more options? 'll share with you my favourite Mothers Day Pins.



And I can't let this opportunity pass by without plugging a Freebie I posted. It's a Mothers Day Pinboard inspired by Pinterest! It would be easy to use them template for so many writing and reading response activities. Enjoy!

Parts of a plant



After learning about seasons we turned to plants and animals.
I started with plants because it's easier.
I like to do a lesson about the parts of a plant, and I matched the parts to a worksheet we also did, otherwise I wouldn't have labelled soil.

The Weird Family




















Who do you teach the double letter sounds?
I made this wall of the WEIRD family.

Obviously, a few of the sounds are actually the same as single letters.
CK WH and PH can all be directly connected to C K W and F, and as such if you're using Jolly Phonics like me, the actions you use for these are the same, but I still separate them since students need to know how to READ the sounds.

I love seeing kids do the actions for sounds when they are trying to read!
