Easter and Some More Random Photos!

Easter is on the way... :)

Easter is coming next week and I FINALLY finished my Easter "Egg"citement pack! Haha...I've been working on this pack for about 2 and a half months now (very typical of "Last Minute Mary" as I call myself).

IF you want to look at it, click the picture below. I really wish I had gotten these games done sooner but oh well... at least I am done with them and blogging about them BEFORE Easter is over! :)

Now I'd like to share some more photos from my classroom! I decided to have fun practicing our long o Spelling Words so I broke out the SHAVING CREAM!!! The kids LOVED this so I'm pretty sure we will have to do this again! 

After they spread the shaving cream out onto their table space, I called out a spelling word and the students wrote it in the shaving cream using their fingers! After I had squeezed in as many words as I possibly could, I let them draw as much as they want! 

BONUS! The shaving cream can loosen up sticky glue on the table and clean up marker, pencil, any crayon marks on the table too! I sprayed the tables down with Formula 409 and the room smelled FANTASTIC!

My AWESOME student teacher was in the room to experience the craziness/fun and she had fun too! You'll see her with the kids in the final photograph. I can't even begin to tell you how much fun this is! 

Honesty Time: ;)

YES, shaving cream was everywhere (on the floor, on chairs, on shirts, on ME) but we were able to wash off all of the shaving cream with a few trips to the bathroom! 
He spelled "low"! Wish you could see the proud look on his face! :)

Hang in there...just a few more pictures of our classroom FUN! :)

My sweeties are reading "Have You Seen My Pot of Gold?" which is part of my Lucky Leprechauns pack (I know, I know more product promoting! Sorry I'll quit after this, I promise!) They really love this book! I can't help but feel successful when I get the seal of approval from my kiddos! 

LAST photos, I promise!!!! I HAD to share these! I got a few love notes on Valentine's Day (I just ran across them on my phone!) and wanted to share! They "love" me! :)

Thanks for hanging in there so long! Isn't this job just the BEST!? Oh...and apparently, when addressing a card to me, all of my little sweeties think "Underwood" is my full name! Ha!



  1. Just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog. :) I have always thought about the shaving cream thing but I'm such a control freak!

    I was thinking maybe--just maybe I can do it in small groups...maybe. We'll see.

    You Might Be a First Grader...

    1. The shaving cream was a FUN mess! Having an awesome student teacher in the room helped a lot! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :) Let me know if you ever try out shaving cream!
