Five for Friday and a Sale!

I've missed a few weeks of linking up with Kacey at Doodlebugs Teaching!
So glad to link up today! Here are five random things from this week!

1) Spring is Here! 
 Is it really Spring?? It certainly doesn't feel like it here in the Deep South!

2) The Day it Rained Nouns! 
 Our Noun Umbrellas created with Washi Tape!
We used Halle's cute literacy pack for The Day it Rained Hearts to
complete this activity. We added nouns then a little Washi tape for fun!

3) Katie's High/Low Linky Party  
My sweet friend, Katie, at Teacher to the Core is having a linky party
to feature our best and worst moments of last month.
