It's the first week back to school since Christmas holidays and my kiddos were right back at it. What a great week! It's been busy but they have easily adjusted to the routines and expectations. Phew! I think many of them couldn't wait to do our Brain Breaks. It's so peaceful and they are getting so good at it!
I am linking up with Kacey over at Doodlebugs teaching for another 5 For Friday. Go on over and check out other people's random happenings from the week.
It was our first week back after holidays. The students were so good! We worked hard all week. Here are our New Year's Resolutions that we made into bookmarks. I laminated them and students will use them each day during reading and to remind them of their goals. These bookmarks came free from Matt Sutton over at Digital Divide and Conquer.
We started looking at mapping skills. The kids loved the big map.
We read my map book and then created our own "fun maps". This one reminded me of my mindful student and teacher poster (which I haven't even put up yet) or the "parts of a student". So cute.
I went grad dress shopping with my oldest daughter. I can't believe she's graduating!!!
We started wondering this week as a first step to starting our passion projects. For a blog post on this click here.
We created some 3-d winter scenes. The winter backgrounds were painted. The figures were cut out and colored with crayon.
Later, we made accordion paper and glued it to make the image "pop' out.
I hope everyone had a good week!
