This is going to be a fast Five for Friday!! Memorial weekend is NEVER relaxing for me. NEVER! I've got report cards, graduation invitations, slide show, art portfolios to prepare, goodbye notes (to be found later) in the back of their journals, and you should see my classroom! Oh my. And I have to deliver fabric to a seamstress 1 1/2 hours away. And we have company coming Sunday night. And I think I feel a melt down coming my way...
So, thank you Doodle Bugs for hosting! Here goes...
On Monday, our sweet secretary greeted anyone who came into the office decked out in the tutu apron! It helped to chase away any bad atti"tutu"des! She's turned to the side a little and you can't totally see the word twirl in the pocket!
She's the best!
I'm off with fabric to the seamstress! We'll make a few of these in different colors for the Vegas conference!
We made bubble art hydrangeas!
Every weekend I pick a project to get ready for the I Teach K conference.
I've made bags, and cut hundreds of cards for packing.
I'm working hard!
I hope someone comes to my booth!
Thursday may have been the best day in kindergarten EVER!!!!!
We're learning about forces and motion right now so I took out some styrofoam thingys and you'd have thought I'd invented the best marble works tracks in the world. I'm not kidding when I say that there were squeals of laughter and ohhhhhs and ahhhhs going on in my classroom. An aide from next door came over to find out what was going on because they could hear us through the walls! I was supposed to be assessing kids and I had to stop to help with the tape dispensing. We used up all of this year's allotment as well as next year's supply! There was tape EVERYWHERE! Including my hair and clothing.
Here's the clever zig zag model. See the towel at the bottom? That's how they decided to stop the marbles from the ever popular hit the metal bowl and ping across the room version they had earlier.
I realize that this is a weird picture, but I don't post pictures of my kids and I couldn't get them to stand far away from the "Let's send a speeding marble clear across the room" track.
Wednesday was our Parent Appreciation Breakfast.
I made cards and gave roses to my volunteers.
My blood pressure goes down when they walk into my room.
I love my helper-outers!
Happy weekend to you!
