Five for Friday...on Saturday!
I spotted this linky and thought it would be the perfect way to get my rear back into blogging. I finally found my stride this week after struggling to get back into the groove. Coming back from Christmas break and being sick both took it out of me. I was finally productive with my planning time (I can often be found visiting with colleagues to avoid my massive To Do list). Not this week! I organized and labeled cabinets, rearranged center spots in my classroom, and even cleaned out files. The most amazing thing of all was that I got to school 30 minutes earlier than usual most days this week so that I could get it all done. My 10 month old decided to wake up at 5:30 each morning this week to get me rolling. :) Can't resist her smiling face so up we got! Here's what has been happening in my classroom this week... We celebrated Kansas Day! Kansas turned another year older and we celebrated with lots of Kansas activities throughout the day. The kids made sunflowers (our state flower) with 100 sunflower seeds glued to the center. They counted out 10 piles of 10. We are experts at this after celebrating the 100th day of school last week. We also enjoyed a little chocolate "Kansas" treat. A mini Hershey choloclate bar with the corner bitten off. The mini M&M represents where we live. They loved it! The fun idea came from my teaching buddy next door. Love teamwork!
