Greetings friends! How’s your week going? Mine…longgggg. That is to be expected since it is the week after Spring Break and my sleep schedule is still off and my bladder thinks it has the right to pee at any moment. You didn’t know? Teachers don’t take restroom breaks! LOL. Monday wasn’t really that bad. First of all, we got to wear jeans. Brilliant idea by my principal! Then, my team got awarded two grants by our local education foundation. We were awarded one iPad for our tutoring groups (for the team, not each) and four Leapfrog tablets (one each). I totally didn’t think we would get chosen so it was a happy day when the “Prize Patrol” came. Not like that dude who shows up on your door with millions, but we still got the “big check” to hold and pose with. Pretty sweet!
My teenagers will be gone this weekend for Winter Jam..an apparently cool Christian concert. So, I think the little man and I will finally go see The Lorax and I will make my Spring/Plants unit. J It’s Spring after all…though you wouldn’t know in Texas because our weather is cray-cray! Seriously, it was pretty chilly today. Hot all winter, but cold the second day of Spring. Whatever.
I am doing a little changing of my centers next week. I want to add a few more sight word activities. We have nine more weeks of school so I need to make sure these sweet babies have a good reading foundation before we set them loose for the summer. I hope they will keep reading BUT just in case they “don’t have time” I want to get the two steps ahead so they come back right where they are supposed to be. J I thought I would share today’s creation. I made flash cards too. I will pick a few flash cards each week and keep this as a constant center (but switching out the colors) for the remainder of the year. Click to download. It is ten pages!
Let me know if you like them, will use them, or just need a nap! J
Love and hugs!
