how to tell your students you're pregnant

I knew I wanted to do something special for my second pregnancy. But, there isn't exactly a tutorial on how to tell your class you're pregnant, so I knew I had to get creative. I took a photo of each student holding a sign and will show what it spells out when put together on Monday to tell them...none of them figured it out yet! I think this will be way more fun than just telling my students like I did the first time around! I can't wait to surprise them!

If you can't see that photo on the bottom very well...I found the shirt on Etsy (I recommend ordering a size up though...I wasn't able to wear it for very long).
Yep! We are super excited and can't wait to complete our little family with one more!  We aren't going to announce the gender, or any name ideas we have floating around, which is how we handled my first pregnancy. It's about the only secret I've ever been able to keep! I have to try really hard to not let "he" or "she" slip out in conversations, which takes extra effort with pregnancy brain...

If you're also a teacher expecting and looking for something to do with your class, I've made this fun packet--My Teacher is Having a Baby! It also includes baby shower printables if you'd like to use them for yourself or another teacher in your building--they're perfect for decorating the staff lounge and include a few quick activities.
