Throwback Thursday.... Colorful Cats and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!

Hey y'all! I hope you're having a great Summer!  I don't know about y'all but it feels like it is flying by.  I'm smack dab in the middle of moving to Florida and trying to get everything ready for I TEACH K! in Vegas next week.  I hope to see y'all there!!!
 Once again, I'm linking up with my sweet friend, Cara's Throwback Thursday post.

Colorful Cats Glyphs...

Our Colorful Cats Data Analysis sheets...

Rainbow Milk Science Experiment

GRRRR!  I couldn't for the life of me get the picture to quit turning sideways!  Blogger needs to get a rotate button.  SERIOUSLY!  
This is one of the emergent readers we did.  The kids circled the color word and highlighted the capital at the beginning of the sentence and the punctuation at the end.

We used Skittles to do some fun (and yummy) 10 frame math!

The activities above are just a small sampling of my Colorful Cats unit.  You can click on the cover below to check it out if you are interested.  

I love the poem, Rainbow Hair.

  10. ps, I used to do a science activity with the rainbow milk. I would use whole milk vs low fat and skim and compare. its very pretty and fun

    1. That sounds cool! I am looking forward to putting this milk experiment into action at some point. Go Gators!! (I personally did not attend UF but my husband did and I have been adopted as a fan ;)

  11. Love all the pictures and ideas!! I saw the milk experiment on Pinterest a while back. That's awesome that you did it with your kids. The pictures sure make me miss school and my kiddos! Best of luck with your move to Florida!! That is where I began my teaching career and still miss my school there. Have a wonderful time in Vegas!
