Ocean Unit and HUGE TPT SALE!!

Happy Saturday blog buddies!  Lindsay here . . .

Have you ever watched that TV show called "I Shouldn't Be Alive"?  I personally try to avoid it (I really don't enjoy watching people ALMOST die long, traumatic, tragic deaths on TV) . . . but my husband just LOVES it.  He could sit on the sofa all day Saturday and watch a marathon of it.  Crazy, right?

Well, yesterday at school was my very own version of "I Shouldn't Be Alive".  For whatever crazy reason, I thought it would be a good idea to finish up be-dazzling our Rainbow Fish (for Open House) with glitter, draw Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz's (from Dr. Seuss's ABCs) for our A to Z art book, paint plates for our Rainforest guide art project, AND modge podge our Mother's Day plates.  (Warning: Do not try this at home. Or at school. Or ever.)

Really people. What was I thinking?  Needless to say, by the end of the day my room looked like this . . . just a giant, wet mess of art supplies. Everywhere.



But I have to say, everything turned out super cute AND we all survived!  Here are the finished products:


Plates - soon to be Rainforest guides!!


Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz - for the Z page of our end-of-the-year art book!


And of course, our plates!  (Don't you just love her cute bun and bow?!  Accessories are everything, right??)  



Its a good thing that  I managed to survive the disaster that was Art Day too, because I have a brand new unit to share with y'all. Presenting . . . I Wanna Be Under The Sea - Math and Literacy Centers!

We'll be making safari guides this week too. I just love them! Your plates are cute and you have put together such terrific activities. I wondered if you could tell me where you got the sponge "brushes" that are in your picture. My teaching partner used to have them and I'd love to get a set. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas.
