Testing & Mama's Day! - Susan Jones Teaching

Testing & Mama's Day!

Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders just began taking their CRTs here in Nevada. High-stakes testing... ahhh!

We knew how stressed out they were about the test so grades K-2 threw an adorable pep rally for the kids yesterday afternoon. We cheered, danced, and wished them well! We also paired up with a 5th grade class and we have a few surprises for them each day of testing. Tomorrow we are giving them these treats I found on Pinterest! The free printables are here: Smartie pants!
Aren't these just the cutest?!

On a different note...Mother's Day is coming up soon and we will be making these little "Mother's love" recipes:

See an example of how to fill it in at my TpT store: Mother's Love Recipe

Last year I baked these sugar cookies and brought them into school to share. Then I printed the cookie recipe back-to-back with the "Mother's love" recipes on card stock. We gave the moms the recipe card (laminated), a cute letter, & a place mat craftivity. I am on the lookout for a new, cute, craftivity for this year! What are you all doing for the holiday?!
