I am doing my usual double linky with Teaching Maddeness and Doodle Bugs Teaching and sharing about our week in Room 29.
Monday was our 100th Day of School. You can see what we did HERE. Had to share my pic again, 'cause it's adorable. :)
Monday was also the start of our March is Reading Month activities. This year our theme is Story Laboratory: Experiment with a Good Book. We had a kick off assembly led by our Principal. He was trying to design the perfect book. Each grade level team had to tell 3 clues as to what their book was and the kids tried to guess.
Can you tell what 2nd grade's was?
Clue 1: Hola Dudes! Our book is about a kitty boy with a sassy mommy and 3 equally sassy sisters.
Clue 2: This kitty boy likes to bounce, Bounce, BOUNCE on his big boy bed... and once or 6 times he lands on his head.
Clue 3: His ears are to beeeg for heeees head. And heees head eees to big for heees body. He is not a Siamese Cat. He is a Chihuahua!
If you guessed Skippy Jon Jones then you are correct....and if you didn't then you must not teach a younger grade. LOL!
This is our principal as his alter ego Dr. Schroederstein. They had dry ice going in the bowl in the middle of the table and we added colored potions to the bowl when we read our clues. There were sound effects as we added them too. It was SO cool!
We are working on finishing up our research report writing unit. And I am working on putting the finishing touches on the organizers we used/ are using for sale on TPT. Fingers crossed I can get it done this weekend!
I changed this page a little and got rid of the bubble strips in the middle. They were cute but kind of cluttered up the page.
Today we started working on our fraction sundaes for the work we love board. I love, love, love this project and always will. It is one of the first things I purchased on TPT when I started using that site last year. I cant wait until they are all done and put on the "Whale Done Work" board. If you love it you can purchase a copy from Amy Lemons ( LOVE HER!) HERE.
The last thing I am going to leave you with is a picture of one of my peanuts reading to the class. This year they started something that makes me kick myself for not starting myself and that I want to keep going for years to come. One day one of them brought in a book from home and asked if she could read it out loud to the class. I said sure. (I mean how do you say no to a request like that?!) And suddenly I had 5 or 6 kiddo's asking if they could do the same.
I LOVE it! I love that they want to read to each other and that this is something they started all on their own. We may not always have time for it the day they ask ,but I try to get to it within a day or two. I think next year I will do it on a rotation, so that whoever is my right hand for the week will have the option of bringing in a book from home to read to the class.
I love these guys. :)
Well, that is all from me. Link up and have a FABULOUS weekend!
