After we read the book and did all of our activities we invited the parents to come and join us to watch the movie!! Woot! Woot! There were so many that had never seen it and they were THRILLED to get to watch it!! We turned it into a party too (of course!) and had Over the Rainbow Cupcakes, Yellow Brick Road Rice Crispy Treats, Wicked Witch Juice, and Cyclones (Bugles) - and we had popcorn during the movie too!! It was really awesome. I had a good amount of parents come in and join us and am so thankful for their support and participation. I love to have them in as much as I can get them. Here are some pictures of the yummies...
I get the pleasure of teaching with Stacy from Funky Fresh Firsties and she made all of the teachers on our grade level an awesome t-shirt to wear yesterday. Here I am in mine. We did our hair and wore sparkly shoes too! (Did you know that the shoes in the book were SILVER????, not RUBY RED???) I found some at Walmart and was so excited to wear them (though the blister is killing me today)!! The kids thought it was too cool that I did my hair like Dorothy too! LOL
OHHHHH!! Our A.W.E.S.O.M.E. librarian tries really hard to do things to help us out when we have things like this so she dressed up like the Wicked Witch and made an appearance at our parties! It was so fun and the screams were priceless!!

So that's it for me folks! Here is my faithful, amazing, talented, supportive, encouraging, hysterical, loving, caring 1st grade team of Hotties (and Joni, the librarian) together yesterday. We were grinning ear-to-ear all day as we helped make memories for our sweet little boys and girls! Can't wait to see what else we come up with this year!!!!
