April Pinterest Pick 3!

I'm loving these new graphics Lisa from PAWSitively Teaching made for our Pick 3 Linky! They are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you Lisa!
After a whirlwind March with St. Patrick's Day, Easter, and April Fools' Day, I'm excited for a calm month! This month I plan to celebrate Earth Day for more than one day. We will be finishing up our insects study, then we will be moving on to plants, then Earth Day activities. I'm looking forward to getting more ideas from the AMAZING bloggers who link up with us this month! Most of my classroom ideas from last month came from the bloggers who joined us! :)

I adore this first pin! What a perfect way to use up all of those extra plastic Easter eggs sitting in a box! I love the idea of putting a battery operated tea light inside the egg so it lights up. The kids would go crazy over these! They would be a fun incentive to give students as a desk buddy for a day, too. Maybe if they have a "lightbulb idea" to share with the class, then they get a friend to keep for the day? Hmmm...

My second pin would be a yummy treat to make for the class! We could watch The Lorax and pass out Earth Day popcorn. I have made something similar with a bag of microwave popcorn and melted Wilton's Candy Melts, but it would be fun to make it in Earth Day colors. (For that, you just melt the candy according to the directions, pop the popcorn, then mix both in a bowl. You then lay it out on waxed paper to cool).

I love this pin! Everything about them screams Earth Day! We will be studying plants next week, so it would be fun to have the students bring in a water bottle and decorate their pots and plant their grass seeds. These are just too adorable!

  1. I love the glow bugs! Those are so cute. This summer our town is having a parade at night and these would be awesome to have some of the float riders to be holding. The grass heads are fun too. You found some great ideas to share!

  14. Fireflies, brilliant. Popcorn, a good idea. Grass in bottles a twist on something I do, but seeing the roots would be neat, as well as it being a good way to use the bottle. Thanks! Kathleen
