Mother's Day Coupons

Mother's Day is just around the corner and we are going to spend next week getting our gifts for mom put together.  Pictures are always a favorite, so I'll be taking pictures this week of my little ones.  I found magnetic frames at The Dollar Tree, so they will be perfect for our cute pics.  I also wanted a little something extra for their moms, so I put together this little coupon book.  There are a total of 10 different coupons included.  There is also a page with blank coupons, so students can write in coupons of their own choosing.

Easter Fun!

Happy Easter Weekend!!! I am certainly welcoming this 3 day weekend.  Yesterday was a super busy day in the classroom and we had so much fun!!!!  Our second graders don't traditionally do egg hunts in the classroom.  It is usually reserved for our kindergartners, but I decided to turn egg hunting into a math lesson.

I began with an egg for each student.  I simply put a NO Homework pass inside with some candies.  I also found some cute little bunny shaped crayons at Walmart that I included.   



Each egg had a math problem on the outside that students had to solve.  I used 2 digit subtraction problems in which the answers were my students numbers in the classroom.  So, basically each egg had an answer of 1-19.  I had them walk around with clipboards and scratch paper searching for eggs and solving the problems until they found the egg which resulted in their number.  I didn't really hide the eggs.  They were in plain view, but they had to go through several eggs to find their own.  It was a great activity, because they didn't have to rush around frantically searching for eggs.  They knew each one of them had their very own egg.  They just had to figure out which was theirs!

They were probably most excited that inside the egg was a no homework pass!!!  No homework passes seem to be a sure way to put a smile on their faces.  You can get them for free by clicking the image below.

We also did a little bit of Easter themed persuasive writing.  Their job was to persuade me that they would be the best choice for an Easter Bunny Assistant.  I read aloud the Easter Bunny's Assistant before they began writing, and that book is seriously adorable.


Here are a few of their writing pieces:





They created their own bunny for their cover using my Build-A-Bunny Patterns:




After writing, it was time for a yummy treat!


I also took pictures of all my second grade bunnies.  
Here's a picture of my favorite bunny, my Greysen!  I added their pics to a template that is included in the same resource as above.  I got the cute little bunny sunglasses at Walmart. 


Wishing everyone a safe and glorious Easter! God Bless!
