Pippi Longstocking!

Thursday, I finished reading "Pippi Longstocking" to my class, and let me tell you...they.loved.every.minute!  So, what do you think we did on Friday?  Watched the movie, of course! 

Don't you just love you some Pippi?  I know I do.  And so did my class.  Obviously....Can't you tell?  

Boy are they glued to the tv!

One of the little crazies even had Pippi Hair for the occassion!

But, first I gave them a template and told them to draw what they thought Pippi was going to look like based on the descriptions in the book.  And this is what I got....... 

Right on, right?  Love it!  So, what fun books are you reading to your class? Any great ideas I can steal?

Wow, I feel like such a jerk.  Here I am, gaining magnificent new followers, and what do I do?  I go a month without a single post.  What a jerk.  Will you ever forgive me? 

So, anyway, Happy March, friends! 

I just love the month of March (despite the fact that I totally forgot to change my class calendar!).  Not only because Spring Break is only a month away (can i get an Amen on that one?!), but also because it is sooo nice outside.  80 degrees to be exact.  I just love the weather today!  I might have to migrate my class outside for a lesson or two. 

So, quick question to all you blogging pros out there:  How in the world might I upload a document like a worksheet or something to share with you guys?  I have been getting kinda creative with the worksheets lately, and I'd love to share....if only I knew how!  Can anyone help a sister out?  I'm still new to this!  :)  Thanks for the love, guys!
