Bunny Job Application freebie and a Peek at My Week!

This peek at my week is not Deedee style (insert sad face here) and that is due to a snow day last week moving things into this week. Instead of indulging in my fancy lesson plans, I am submersed in chaos! 3rd quarter grade cards go home in 4 days.  Which means, rummaging through STAR reports, DRA's, and weekly grades that have culminated into a minor headache for me....  Thank the lord we only have to this 4 times a year.  If it was 5, I would retire and take up golf with Chris! 
At the moment, I am drafting grade card comments. 
I make a separate sheet for comments that accompany the grade card.  These babies take me roughly 2 hours to write.  Grueling and I don't particularly rate it high on my "favorites" list, but I do believe it is a strong connection to the parents.  So needless to say, my weekend was stolen by the grade card caper.  If you are interested in the comments template I have created, shoot me an email and I will forward it to you!

This is our last week before spring break and its shortened with having Thursday as our last day. So for lesson plans, let me show you a few Eastery, Springy fab-finds that I am doing this week!  First up,

Brittany's Easter Compound Chop will be a huge hit with the kiddos!

The adorably fabulous Sarah Paul has this fantastic "Egg"-cellent Inferences pack-

 How lucky was I to win this yummy Marshmallow Bunny Fact Family Center from Kidsrcute!

Mrs. Leeby shared her awesome freebie, "Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Basket"

The very creative and talented ReaganTunstall has given a whole new meaning to the plastic egg!  I just bought 3 packs of eggs and can't wait to share this with the kids!  Word Work time will be EXTREMELY popular this week!  

And if you happen to be reading The Easter Bunny's Assistant,
The Easter Bunny's Assistant
the very eager Julie Marciniak (me) has created a little fab freebie just for you!
How would your kids like to apply for the Easter Bunny's Assistant position? 
Sounds like too much fun, don't you think?!
After all applications have been recorded "on file" yours truly will have a secret meeting with the big furry rabbit after school and decide who is a "good fit" for the job.  The winning applicant or applicants get to wear bunny ears and a special furry badge on Thursday!

and don't forget a little TPT feedback!

So that's the plans for the week!  Woo-Hoo!  
T-Minus 4 days and counting...
Spring Break, can't wait for you to take me away!!!


  1. I just got this book through a Scholastic book order last week. Thank you for the freebie to use with the book! Super cute :)

  2. Whew! Spring Break is almost here!! We probably should have been working on report cards, but we have a workday on Thursday, so we are going to see if we can get them done then.
