Currently April - Plus an Earth Day Freebie!

Oh' boy fourth grade

BUT...before you head over, I want to say THANK-YOU to you, my faithful bloggy readers. And for you - and you ONLY! - I have a freebie for you - just in time for April:

Earth Day is April 22nd and it's an opportune time to talk with your students and children about doing our part to keep the earth clean.

"To Recycle or Not to Recycle..That is the Question" is a fun sorting activity where students draw cards with items listed and must decide if that item is recyclable or non-recyclable. An answer key is included.

This is a 12-page packed, filled with fun and engaging activities that leave your students knowing a valuable life skill.

Also included is an acrostic poem template for "RECYCLE."

Oh - this is what I'm going to write on my board tomorrow for Homework:
  • Read the dictionary
  • Choose a volume of the encyclopedia, read it in it's entirety, and write a book review
  • Write your multiplication facts 100 times each
  • Write a paragraph defining each of your spelling words. Your paragraph must include: part of speech, country of origin, pronunciation, definition, and a short story demonstrating that you understand the meaning of the word.
Just a little delayed April Fool's fun - I can't wait to hear them panic! :)


  1. Really? You have to wait until the END of April? That's just cruel and unusual punishment. Sending you energy to make it!

    LOVE your advice about taking lots of pictures. That really is key. I have a little point and shoot camera I keep in my classroom so I can snap pictures when inspiration strikes. :)

  2. Great advice for sure! That is my favorite part of everyones blog. I love seeing what everyone is doing. I love your recycling product - I am going to go put it in my cart. I don't know what is worse - the END of April or the BEGINNING of March - We had ours then and I am already ready of another break! So glad to find your blog!

  3. I love your homework assignment for tomorrow. I think my kids would be shell shocked! Thanks for the Earth Day freebie! I just posted my Earth Day packet too and I am giving away a copy over at my blog. Hope you can use it in your classroom!

  5. Love the Earth Day Freebie, thanks. I am having an Earth Day link up at my blog if you want to link this post, its perfect! Fun in K/1

  6. Love your homework assignment! Since I forgot to do my prank today, I am going to do it tomorrow. I am going to go to the letter punch machine (Edison?) and punch out some brown colored "E's", put them in a glass dish with tinfoil on top, and serve them to the class as brownies! hahaha I am your new follower and a fellow East Coaster!
    Have a great week!
