It's not only Friday, but it's the Friday of a long weekend!
I'll be linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for 5 for Friday!
Here are 5 highlights from my week!
My kiddos completed THIS 2015 freebie (from Rachel Lamb), and needed the opportunity to use glitter. (This was last Friday, after 5 days of indoor recess.) We finally got the finished products mounted and on the wall. Unfortunately these photos don't quite capture how sparkly and pretty they turned out!
I used THESE Thank You cards, and my kids just loved writing them! Plus, they love decorating them, and especially loved receiving them!
After 8 days of indoor recess, we FINALLY got to send the kids outside to recess on Thursday and Friday. Boy, did they need to get outside! They'd been real good sports about being stuck inside, and I pull out all the good stuff they usually can't use when they're stuck inside, but they needed to breath real air, run around, and PLAY! They were in such better spirits by Thursday afternoon!
I really love the sound of snowpants swishing as they walk down the hall! :)
We've studied all about Martin Luther King's life, and how he chose peaceful protests rather than violence. By Friday afternoon, they were ready for a craft. I ran off the earth pictures on blue paper so that the ocean was blue. They traced their hands on different colored construction paper and decided how they wanted to show Dr. King's dream of peace between people of different colors. I purposely pulled out several shades of brown, orange, yellow and pink to represent the many different skin colors. I was very pleased with how their projects came out! (I'm not a fan of craft projects that look exactly alike, so I'm glad each one showed their own personal flair!)
My blogging friend Celeste from The Education Highway is having an awesome giveaway! Be sure to check out her 5 different prize packs, especially #4 which has my Mental Math 100, just in time for Day 100!
