This week I felt like a teacher rockstar and it was due in large part to Abby over at Babbling Abby. I purchased her Inference Investigators unit and it was super fantastic. Like awesomely amazing fantastic. I had my formal evaluation coming up and I was kind of
The funny part is that the highlight of the activity is about a snow day. Well, my little Florida friends knew next to nothing about snow or snow days, so we had fun reading books and watching Reading Rainbow to build up our background knowledge. Love me some LaVar! I didn't think it would look right to take pictures of them during the actual investigation while I was being observed...but I may re-create the scene at a later date to snap a few because it was that.darn.cute!
So...what else. Lemme see...
We made these sweet as can be Heart Maps for our February bulletin board. These came from Cara Carroll, another teacher who's covered in all kind of awesome sauce.
And how cute are these Friendship Hearts from Mrs. Lemons?! I've been a big fan of hers for a long time. She rocks it out pretty regularly.
We also completed our Me on the Map projects from Clutter Free Classroom. I changed it up just a teensy bit. Cute right? The kids really got a great understanding of where they are in the world after this. They still kind of confuse things from time to time, but for the most part they're much better at geography than I was at their age!
That just about brings you up to speed on the happenings in my little corner of the world except for today's Seuss-a-palooza (pix coming soon!) Right now I need a nap to recover.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
P.S. I have an amazing giveaway coming this weekend from Scholastic News(!) so be sure to come by and check it out.
