MY NEW LOOK, Giveaway WINNER, and Friday Science!

Happy Happy Friday Everyone!!!
Did you notice my new look?? I could NOT BE HAPPIER with my new blog makeover! I have been trying to makeover my blog myself, but was not happy with my results. That's where Ruby Slippers Blog Designs came in!
Barbara was amazing to work with, reasonably priced, and so creative! She worked quickly, and took the time to find out exactly what I liked/didn't like...etc. I would HIGHLY recommend her!
We've had a busy week, but lots of fun activities to go along with Mother's Day and Celebrating AZ's 100th Birthday in our school.

I recently hit 100 followers and had a big GIVEAWAY!!!! The winner of that giveaway was COMMENT #15, which is Joni from KinderKids Fun! Thanks for entering Joni, and be on the lookout for emails from me, Lacey, Tessa, and Cara!!! Congrats on all your goodies!

Anyone else study the Polar regions, Antarctica, Penguins, or Polar bears??? We do a big Penguin/Antarctica unit in our class and we are in the midst of it right now.

I came across the most amazing HANDS-ON (yes...I love all things HANDS ON) website for this unit!
The website is Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears !

It has all sorts of activities that are extremely hands-on, educational, and super fun! The focus of this website is to be able to arm you with all things POLAR, so you can have a "polar festival", however, you could also just look through and pick and choose the ideas you'd like to use with your class. It covers animal life, climate, geography, and more!!! I am going to be grabbing several ideas from this site!

Hope you like it too! If you visit, I'd love some feedback! Comments are always welcome!
