It's FRIDAY, and I'm as happy as a little girl! (SNL Dieter Flashback - Sorry!)
I work for an awesome district. Several times a year, they offer "Make and Take" sessions. Tuesday, I went to a Science inservice. I was able to make and laminate 5 stations. I, also, walked away with four books. (If you'll notice my cat, Kipper, is reading the "Rain for the Bluebonnets" board.)
Friday was my teaching partner's birthday! I made her a vase out of Junior mint boxes. I added flower candles, her favorite snack (almonds, cashews, and pistachios), and a set of monogrammed stamps. Then, I added a pretty ribbon. It turned out pretty cute.
Last week, I mentioned that I made my first foldable with my 2nd graders. This is one of my student's foldable. Me = Blown. Away. She trimmed the pictures, but left the name of the Science tool attached. This was nicer than my example.
As I sat on the floor with my kids, I couldn't help think about the students and teachers at Sandy Hook and the terror that they went through hiding in closets. Even though, I prepared my class for the drill today, my heart still skipped a beat when the administrators checked my door to make sure it was locked.
To celebrate Patriots Day, I made my "My Hero Writing Project" FREE until Veterans Day!
Another quick freebie, I made a Properties of Matter Scavenger Hunt for Science homework this week.
Hope you had a great week and have an even better weekend!
