Thanks Mrs. Wheeler for your weekly linky party!
Just before Easter our third quarter of school ended. To celebrate the end of the quarter and the successes everyone had our wonderful PTO group provided bouncy houses for the elementary students. The students loved their time in the bouncy house and they were certainly tired when our turn ended.
This week was a week of extremes! Beautiful tulips blooming in the house and icicles hanging on the house.
Two snow days!!!
Yes, two snow days in April! I think that is a first for me in my teaching career. Even here in northeastern Wisconsin, this was a strange week.
The good news, later this week the temps should be back to close to normal.
This week we will be working on our graphing skills. I was off to my favorite Dollar Tree to find what I could find. I was very pleased with these items - little erasers, assorted animals, building blocks, and baseball cards.
Students will use these items to create their own picture graphs and bar graphs. More about our graphing adventure next week.
We are WRITERS! I'm so proud of this group of students! They are writers, they take their time, they think, and some even remember capital letters and end marks. 😄
Our class is currently working on completing the Student Treasures published book. Anyone else complete a book this year? I have a parent volunteer coming in later this week to help with the final copy of written pages. I'm hopeful it will only take a day or two to get the perfect, mistake-free pages we need.
I know I've shared pictures of our school's family meetings before, but these monthly meetings always impress me. I love the organized look of everyone in their grade level colors, second grade is purple.
We always have a character education lesson and pick names for prizes. The prizes are the best part!
It is hard to believe that we are in our last quarter of the school year! Where does the time go? Like you I have so many things that I want to do with the students.
What are some of the end of year projects you plan to do?
Have a great week!
