Rewind Time....Beauty Queens, Pirates, & Burgers

Can you believe it's May?  Where has this year gone??? I was looking back at the pictures on my phone and I realized there are a few things that I meant to share with you but never did.  Oops!

A few weeks ago we had the privilege of meeting Miss Collierville (a suburb of Memphis).  She is  She's the one on the right....  :)
Isn't she cute?  My kids were absolutely fascinated by the fact she could walk in her pumps.  Not to mention she had a real crown....She read Recess Queen to us and talked to us about her plans for future competitions. 
Her talk actually blended right in with our Social Studies discussion.  We had just finished making Rockin' Teacher Material's "Where in the World Are We?" booklets.  I was able to connect that to Miss Collierville's plans for future pageants.  I explained the whole Miss Collierville---> Miss Tennessee ----> Miss USA progression. 

Like how I connected her visit to our learning?  I'm getting good at this.

Moving on.....we also completed our Mapskills Review Unit- pirate style.  I used a lot of materials from One Extra Degree's fabulous unit. {Love her!}
Here is a picture of one of my pirate's with her very own map.  We used recycled paper bags to create our maps on, of course.
One last share tonight.  We modified Amy Lemon's burger template from her Main Idea unit to create these.  Anyone care to take a bite out of main idea?

Tomorrow is our Field Day!  I've got to tuck in early because it is going to be one exhausting day.  I leave you with a picture of my sweet ones decorating their banner for the festivities!

Yes....coloring is tiring...that must explain why one of my kiddos is laying down on the banner...



  1. Her laying on the poster cracked me up..its getting to be that time of year :)

  3. Love your treasure maps! We are doing a pirate summer school theme and I just created a board on Pinterest for it. We were going to order treasure maps but I told my principal we could easily make them. So I am shooting this to her too! Thanks!
