This week has been an absolute whirlwind of activity and for that I'm so, SO grateful. Without a few activities outside of our normal routine, I might not have crossed the finish line Friday afternoon!
You see, we're down to 12.5 school days remaining and while I don't advertise that fact in my classroom, my kiddos instinctively know it's close! They're beginning to ricochet off the walls, bounce down the hall, roll on the floor, shout in the restroom, and vibrate during their center time. It's not a pretty picture, I tell ya.
Anywho... this is a snapshot of my week.
This process began 3 years ago and we just completed it this week with a thorough visit from members of the Blue Ribbon team.
If you're not familiar with this award, it recognizes both public and private schools where students perform at very high levels or where significant improvements are being made in student achievement.
I've always known I worked at a fabulous school and
we'll soon have a plaque to prove it!
Secondly, I've been busy teaching antonyms, synonyms, and homonyms.
I created these anchor charts while watching my favorite program, Hoarders.
(Yeah, it's strange and relaxing at the same time.)
Can you tell my other passion is clipart?
I whipped up a quick set of oi/oy activities for centers this week.
Two freebies are up for grabs.
After that, it's available here.
Just leave a comment (and your email address, of course!).
I mean, how else would I know where to send it?
Enjoy your weekend, folks!
