Well, we survived another week! 11 more days of students plus 2 staff days (Boo! for snow day make up!)=13 days of work until SUMMER! One more Friday left to link up with Doodle Bugs for my 5 random moments of the week!
Field Trip! Monday we went to an area nature center and the park.
The kids used nets to fish out little insects/larvae from the pond.
The day was a lot of fun even though it started to rain later on and a student from another class fell in the pond (yikes!!).
K, L, M, N, O Days for our 26 Day Countdown!
K was supposed to be Kindness but we were at the nature center. Those teachers that didn't go did a lot of things with being a bucket filler using this book and video.
L was Ladybug day! Look at this cutie who took the day very seriously!
M was Movie and Mismatched day. We all dressed in mismatched clothes and watched A Bug's Life. I know, I know! That's a long movie but we took an intermission and then did a character map of the main character. I promise that
I got my assessing finished something was learned!
N was New Name. Kids could pick a new name for the day. It was a lot of fun to see what names they created for themselves. I wrote it on a sentence strip so they could wear it on their heads.
I was amazed at how easy it was to remember their new names, too!
Today was O for Olympics.
Love this video!
We also ran the track and read some great non-fiction books about the different events.
Here is Ladybug Girl (from above) again with her Olympics gear. Her friend is wearing a gymnastics leotard. So cute!
I reviewed this AMAZING sharpener this week!
