March Literacy Center and a Field Trip!

It's finished!  My first ever literacy center- in full!!!!  I'm so over the moon excited about completing this!

Here's the agenda for the literacy centers (complete with the common core standards it meets!)

A glimpse at what is included:

LOTS of student record sheets to make sure your kiddos stay on task!
 A writing prompt:

 A cute little St. Patrick's Day poem...
 Complete with word cards for students to match to the words in the poem :)

 Customizable detective center so you can target the words you are working on in your own classroom:

 Cutesy themed words to spell!

There you have it!  That's not all... it was 22 slides LONG!! :)  Check it out at my Teacher's Notebook Store- it's only $5.  You can also buy just bits and pieces if you don't want or need all of it!  The letter tiles activity is FREE at my TN store- so go check it out! :)

OH!  And we had a field trip today... and they LOST our lunches!!!!!  OMG- good thing a parent was able to track them down or we would have had some angry parents looking for their vera bradley and 31 lunch bags!!!!! 
So- my question to you-

What is the funniest/craziest/wierdest thing that has happened to you on a field trip???


  1. Looks great!!! I am happy you found the lunches! Serious chaos! The worst thing that happened to me was that a bird shit on my head (can I swear on a blog?)! It was the sickest thing ever!!!! The kids thought it was hilarious and I was freaking out!

  2. I think the craziest thing that every happened to our class on a field trip was when we went to the Sand Dunes (southeast Idaho), and we were taking a nature walk and we came upon a moose and its child (mooseling?). Well, moose are quite territorial and the mother turned to challenge us (first graders) the students were fascinated and one said, "are we going to pet them?" The teachers were panicing, just when I was getting ready to say run and picked up a stick, the little stinker of the group threw a rock which landed in the water near the moose's nose and the moose turned and ran. Yay little stinker! The rest of the day was great.

  4. oops meant "your" not "hour"...

  5. We took the student council kids to Ronald McDonald House to serve brunch. One always helpful kid was carrying a gallon of milk.... until he dropped it, splattering milk all over the vehicle and at least two students. Hi-larious start to the day!

  6. At a lunch were trying to catch a raccoon....highly likely a rabid raccoon considering it was out during the day.

    Love your blog!
