And I'm so excited for Monday! What? You think I'm crazy? Well I am a little crazy...
But you see, I live near Chicago and the Dallas Cowboys play the Bears Monday night and
I CAN'T WAIT! I LOVE the Cowboys! Tomorrow I will be wearing either my Romo jersey or my Aikman jersey (haven't decided yet).
My birthday was Friday and I saved my "birthday dinner" for Monday Night.
We are all going to a local bar and grill to watch the game (it's family friendly). My girls LOVE the excitement when a big game is on...and I'm sure I'll be one of the few in a Cowboys' jersey.
My team bought me the cookie cake---which was hysterical after lunch when all the teachers came back with blue mouths! My daughter made me the monkey card. LOVE!
But anywho, last week was a great one. We started our novel study on Velveteen Rabbit and the kids are loving it! They brought in their "real" stuffed animals and they are writing a paper about how/why/when their animal or item became "real".
We also had two more Genius Hour presentations! The two students presented on magnets. They taught us how magnets work, what magnets are, and showed us a few things.
And another student presented on how to draw Luigi!
Students cracked eggs, cracked jokes, and located/explained the parts of an egg.
They were super excited! I was being pulled in all directions in the classroom because they wanted to show me the parts they found!
Another success is my favorite bulletin board!
After studying singular and plural nouns, I had the students choose a singular noun randomly.
They had to write the plural noun correctly and use the plural noun properly in a sentence. To grab this fun and easy activity, click on the bulletin board and it will take you to my TPT store for great price!
She probably is laughing and this cracks me up!
When we left the house it was a balmy 13 degrees. By the end it warmed up to 16. IT WAS SO COLD. My family laughed at me for only having my eyes peek out of my coat. Santa was about 20 minutes late (due to pilot being late-first time ever)...so we had been standing outside for about 30 minutes. BRRRR. We warmed up quickly when we went into the bank for some Santa time.
