Zoo Trip!

Happy Saturday! We only have 24 more schools days left...it's kind of hard to believe!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs teaching to share my Five For Friday, on Saturday. I was just waaayyyyyy tooooo exhausted to blog yesterday. It has been a long week.
I didn't spend this past Monday in the classroom. I was in Albuquerque, New Mexico for my brother's graduation from Physician Assistant school! We are all so proud of him!
Oh, and did I mention the weather is CRAZY in Albuquerque?! 65 mph winds! Here's a picture of me that will probably make you laugh!
Tuesday, we had our grade level field trip to the zoo! My little firsties were so excited! Several of them had never been to the zoo before...so this was an experience! 

I'll take a moment for a little teacher confession. I was absolutely terrified that I was going to lose a student inside the zoo! Keeping an entire class of first graders together, by yourself, can be a challenging task. So, I made these tags for each of my kids to wear. I also stuck a fruit snack in the back because I knew they'd get hungry:).
In case you're wondering...nobody got lost:). 

I took a bazillion pictures of our trip to the zoo! I'll spare you, and not share them all:).
We learned a lot about animals this week! I purchased this awesome pack on TPT to go along with our animal unit! It's so nice when I find an awesome product and don't have to create it myself:)!
The kids hard at work:). Isn't that drawing just the cutest?!
I am loving these water-color paintings! My kiddos are becoming quite the little artists! I love directed drawings; the kids are getting much better at following step by step instructions.
It's time for a giveaway! Enter to win one of my packs along with many other AMAZING products!
