Peeps, Peeps, Peeps

Oh, how I love Peeps! In fact, the Easter bunny always leaves a box of Peeps for each of my kids and a box of Peeps for me (so I don't eat their Peeps).

Imagine my excitement when my good friend, Jennifer (Rowdy in First Grade), shared her For My Peeps: Easter Candy Themed Literacy Stations with me!  Jennifer was one of my first bloggy friends and we've been keeping in touch over the past few years.  From across the country, I waited for her to post wedding pictures, jumped up and down when she got a new car and smiled when the Winter X games came on TV.

Jennifer and her husband just moved (yep, in the middle of the school year).  Been there, done that...ughhh. It is all worth it in the end, but ya know. Perhaps you could stop by and leave my friend a positive message...

Now about those literacy stations...

 They are amazing! We've been doing lots of "how-to" writing this year. My students LOVED writing about how to decorate an egg! Another favorite was the compound word station.  You can check out Jennifer's For My Peeps literacy stations by visiting her Tpt store.

Today is my first day of spring break. I love spring break just about as much as I love Peeps. Ha!


  1. Hey You!
    I'm not much of a peep fan - but my firsties DO love them! And I love Jennifer, love you and LOVE that today is the first day of our spring break too!

    Hope you relax and enjoy some time with family and friends!

    Have you done any more projects around your house? Loved looking at your kitchen pictures!

  2. Jennifer ROCKS! I heart her big time! She's such a sweetheart that she even made a point to send me a Happy Birthday email mid-move!!! Love her AND Peeps!

    It's my first day of break, too! Woot woot!!

  3. You are too sweet! Thank you so much for the post! I have seriously been thinking of you throughout the whole move. I keep thinking "Kimberly survived this, I can too." Cannot wait for the whole move to be over. I'm trying to unpack today! How many melt downs did you have during your move? I lost it this morning! LOVE YA!

  4. I just found your blog. I don't like Peeps...but my boys do. Over spring break they took two Peeps and put a toothpick in each one. They stood them up in the microwave and turned it on. As they expanded, it looked like they were jousting! AH boys!!! We ended up going to the Peep store at the MOA so they could check everything out. I'm going to have to check out the Peeps pack. :)
