I know many of you are beginning to count down the days, but meanwhile I am over here with more than 7 weeks to go! wah!!!
However, the end of the year brings, in most cases, more maturity and than means more fun stuff. I know I do a lot more crafts with our lessons because at this point they are a tad more independent so they can do a craft on their own while I am conducting reading groups.
In fact, just yesterday we watched The Lorax (unfortunately it was only the 30 minute version) and afterwards I showed them a craft from Pinterest and they just made it! All I had to do was copy the stache because they would've made handlebar mustaches on the poor little orange guy! (and I forgot to take a picture, but it'll be on my IG soon enough!
I wanted to show you some perfectly adorable springy writing ideas I've rounded up from my Owl girls!
