I haven't been the best blogger out there. I haven't even been good. But, life has been busy, I have been a bit stressed, and I haven't made the time to blog, nor was it a priority. I have some time tonight, so what better way to spend the night than by updating my blog. Here's some stuff from the last month...or so!
We celebrated the 100th day of school in January. I have had the kids do a "family project" for many years. They are to create a poster with 100 things, whatever they want. Some are very creative and there was a lot of thought put into them, while others aren't as creative, but the child and their parent worked together for a bit!
Teacher Bits and Bobs and just had to do it. The kids loved it and were so happy with how they turned out. I am sad to see them go, but it's time for something else to go up!
Deanna Jump's page and just had to do it. Too fun! We also did a directed drawing of the Statue of Liberty. I don't know where the pics are of those, but the actual pics are in our office right now! I have never done this unit justice in the past, but I did a bit better this year. I actually did more this year than in all the years combined. And I had fun! Now to add to it to make it even better for next year!
This week will be a crazy week. On top of being a short week (Amen!), I have to finish all my testing for report cards. I need to get math testing done, along with the DRA's, word tests and a writing sample. It's never boring, that's for sure. But, to get the testing done means there is yet another week where we aren't doing reading groups and working on reading at all the levels. Hmmm...what's a teacher to do? I would love to take the day off and test, but I doubt my principal would go for that. How great would that be...a whole day to get testing done without missing instruction? What a concept!
Happy Sunday all! I am so glad I have an extra morning to sleep in and get things done. I am so looking forward to laying in bed to watch GMA and maybe even eating breakfast in bed! What a glorious thought! Here's to the start of a great week with the thought of another night of blogging in the future!
