I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share about my week.
I posted on my Facebook page ( follow me HERE) that I came home from dinner last night to NO power! It was just out in my neighborhood, so we went to my best friends house and played with her and her dog Henry until the power came back on.
We were making Henry be a circus dog. He was thrilled. :)
And just to brag a little bit about my awesome Hubby, we went to dinner last night to celebrate his passing his firefighter exam and officially becoming a firefighter for the township. YAY! He has been working SO hard this year and it has taken away SO much family time that we are ALL glad it is over. Ironically, after dinner, he got a call and had to go help with a fire.
On Tuesday, Peanut had an appointment at the allergist. So we had a mommy/daughter day. It was great.
Here we are being silly before the doctor came to check her out. Look at those red allergy eyes. Poor kid. She should really live in a bubble.
Then we went to Frederik Meijer Gardens to see the butterflies. ( The same place 2nd grade went on a field trip to a couple of weeks ago.) The gardens are literally across the road from her allergist so we go there after her check up every year.
After that we went to Olive Garden for lunch. YUMMY! And then we got ice cream on the way home. It was an awesome, relaxing day.
We are taking the reading portion of the test next week so we have been doing some prep for that.
We practiced adding prefixes to a word and learned what they meant. ( Monday we will be working with suffixes.) I found a great prefix and suffix freebie from Amy Lemons. Check it out HERE.
First we sorted words by which prefix we would add to them.
One of my teaching partners found a power point to use to review for the reading and math portions of the MAP test. ( You can check it out HERE.) The questions are all aligned with the 180-200 RIT range. It has turned out to be a great resource.
I put the questions up on our white board and the kiddos wrote their answer down on their mini white boards. Ones that a majority of them missed we went over as a class. I was pretty pleased by how well some of them were doing.
Well, that's all for me for this week. I am hurriedly trying to get my Earth Day pack done today. Check out my Facebook page this weekend for the giveaway when it is done.
Enjoy your weekend friends!
