May, Worms, Ducks, Sale and a Freebie Oh My!

Hello May!  (How did I miss the first 5 days?)  At any rate I have so much going on as you will see in my post.  It may be a little long... so I am giving you 2 3 FREEBIES!

To start things off I am linking up with Farly's Oh' Boy 4th Grade May's Currently.  This is a great link up with so many fabulous blogs featured.  I can literally get lost on this linky for hours....  I only a few days late linking up, so here is what I am currently up to!

I want to update you on our little ducklings.  We had 9 of our little ducks hatch Saturday during the day.  I was so bummed that it didn't happen on a school day.  I was able to stream it live and many families watched.  I also recorded it to show my class too.

Aren't they adorable!!!  I will bring them in for my students to see tomorrow.  I will have to wait until after we complete the sections our standardized test for the day.  I will hide them out in my office until then.  Here is a "Hatching Announcement" we will complete to share the great news!  It can be used for ducks or chicks!  Students draw pictures of the new arrivals, list their names and their hatchdate.  Grab it FREE here!

In addition to hatching our ducks, we also have been learning about earthworms.  Before you ask, NO I am not going to feed my worms to my ducks!  Although I could use it to teach about food chains!  Before doing this earthworm unit, hatching eggs was my favorite unit/ lesson I did.  Now, I will have to say I think I like teaching about Earthworms just as much as my little guys love learning about them!

I have put together everything I have used while teaching about these amazing little diggers in to my new (finally completed) Primary Unit All About Earthworms!  The unit is packed with so many activities and printables.  It is for sale in my TpT and TN stores for $2.95.  There is a great FREE activity in the preview.  If you are looking for a fun, educational and dirty activity for the last few weeks of school, this is it!!

It gets even better with Teacher Appreciation Sales this week!  Teachers Notebook is running a sale all week!  Teachers Notebook is giving an extra 10% off sale prices for the entire week!  My items, including my new Earthworms Unit are 20% off, for a total discount of 28%.  Teachers Notebook is also having a giveaway everyday!  Make sure to stop by for your chance to win!
In case you haven't heard, Teachers Pay Teachers is having a 2-day Teachers Appreciation Sale May 7th and 8th!  You can save up to 28%!  So start adding to your wishlist!

Speaking of Teacher Appreciation Week, I thought I would share one of the items I am giving a few of my favorite teachers this week!

Click here to grab these tags free!  They also make great gifts for volunteers at the end of the year!  I actually make up a few to have on hand for whenever I may need them.  You can get these cute coffee cups at the dollar tree!  Include a coffee gift card if you like!

OK, I guess this about does it!  I am linking up with Manic Monday!  Don't forget to check in over there for more great freebies!  Check back later this week for information on a Teacher Appreciation Blog Hop coming up packed with freebies for you!
