Wow, it's been another great week, and I'm really feeling delightfully appreciated this week! Not only did the week start with Mother's Day, but this was Teacher Appreciation Week in my school!
I know it's technically not Friday, but I'm still linking up with Doodle Bugs Five for Friday. Here are 5 things about my week!
I was lucky to be able to spend some time with my delightful daughter this past weekend for Mother's Day. We went out to eat (twice!), saw a show, and spent some great time together! (That's always the best part!) Plus, I got a basket of gifts!
We have absolutely the best parents at my school! Besides the above teacher appreciation luncheon in our beautiful library on Wednesday, we had a breakfast, loads of sweet little goodies in our mailboxes each day, and an amazing raffle! The best part? We get to work with their kids!
This was the best. It was a Candy Bar! I know there were a few more calories than a salad bar, but who doesn't need extra chocolate this time of year?
My class is performing at next week's Memorial Day assembly. They'll be telling a few facts about Memorial Day (Which we researched together from a close read in THIS packet.) and they'll be singing a medley of armed forces songs. Our fabulous art teacher helped us out making posters for each of the 5 branches of the armed services. I was absolutely amazed at how well those posters were coming out! Plus, it was a great opportunity to work at the skill of making group decisions, which they handled beautifully!
I'm starting to think in terms of "End of School Year" mode, even though we still have 22 school days left.
I tend to play a lot of active games with my kiddos, including this Social Studies scoot to review those important skills I don't want them to forget! You can download this freebie HERE.
Have a fabulous week!
