Skipping Ahead... and a Bulletin Board!

I get antsy... which is why it's still March and I'm skipping ahead to April!  Maybe it's the b-e-a-u-tiful weather outside?!  Or maybe I wanted a head start on April themes, since we'll have a week off after Easter.  Any which way, I got the itch to change my hallway BB *immediately* so I got to work on some Earth Day fun!

First we read a story about helping the Earth, and then we brainstormed all the ways that we can HEART the Earth.  We made this anchor chart {which is now linked up to Ms. M's fun linky party!}:
I added the cute details to the anchor chart while my sweeties worked on a little writing:
After writing, we completed the activity with a craft... and after school, I put them up!
What do you think?  I'm lovin' it!  But I am biased ;)  I got the craft and writing prompt from my heart the earth {craftivities} packet, available on TpT and now TN!
