The end of our nonfiction writing unit was coming...the last day before Spring Break was coming. My teammate and I decided to make our day before Spring Break a Nonfiction Writing Celebration. We had our students bring in their favorite stuffed animal. We started our day by making portfolios to take home our nonfiction informational and how-to books. Next our two classes got together with our stuffed animals to share a couple of our books. Then we had some yummy snacks. Last we drew a picture and wrote a fact about our stuffed animal.
Inspired Owl's Corner for their monthly Pinterest Pick 3 Party.
During April we focus on all things Spring. We circle back around to our study of trees and what happens to them in the spring. We make some spring bunnies along with some other spring crafts. My last pin is a yummy treat that I made for Easter but will be making again this month because it was a big hit and anything that has M&Ms in it makes me happy.
I have an End of the Year board instead of an April board because for me April and May blend together into a very busy time of the year in Kindergarten. Make the most out of the last couple of months with your little learners!
Draw the bed with a brown marker at the bottom of the page, add the pea with a green marker, glue on rectangle strips of scrapbook paper and use markers to draw the princess on top.

Draw the troll with a Sharpie marker and then paint the troll and the background with liquid watercolor paint.
These are my favorite fairy tale books. The stories have been shortened and the illustrations are adorable. I have collected this series of fairy tales at Ollie's Bargain Outlet which is an awesome place to find inexpensive, mostly hardback books.
