Anyways, I promised I'd award some commenters with their choice of item from my store, so I picked 3 random winners and they are:
Thank you so much ladies! I will be contacting you shortly to see which goody you'd like!
We are on day 3 of inside recess. I think I can safely say that I am a wee bit cranky at this point and my students are a wee bit crazy. I am praying for snow or warmer weather. At this point I don't care which - this in-between stuff is killing me - either it has to be warm enough to go outside or too snowy to come to school! However, we did have a ton of fun during recess today:
Puppet Center is always the first to fill up - love how these kiddos are using both sides of the stage to interact!
To entice a few kiddos to drawing center I got out the markers and the colored pencils - gasp!
My block center kiddos made a helicopter pad - love how they put the helicopter on top of the H block!
The Marble Run is actually my very favorite - I could play with these things for hours and so can my students! They are getting to be good little architects!
I am sad to say that our copy machine is down due to lack of toner. Apparently we are shipping in replacement toner from Timbuktu and it won't be here until next week sometime. I was sincerely relieved that we had library and computers today, at least a little bit of time was eaten up that way! I am not sad that I don't have worksheets, as we don't usually use them much anyways, but I can't even send home a sight word list or print any recording sheets for units! Today during library time our librarian read Snowmen at Night and I can't even use the super cute Snowman at Night Craftivity/Writing activity I found that goes with it!
Yep, the January blahs are in full force, I think it's time to cut this pity party short! In order to cheer myself up tonight I created a fun little graphing freebie that goes along with some cute marshmallows I found at the grocery store! They come in banana, strawberry, orange and raspberry shapes, and as soon as I saw them I knew they'd be a perfect Friday treat! Hopefully you can find them at a grocery store near you and use this freebie too!Just click the picute to download it in Google Docs!
