I survived this week! There must of been something in the water, because classes all over campus were going crazy this week. Did anyone else have a crazy week?
I've linked up with this amazing linky party. I love love love Five for Friday. Here are my five random things from this week.
We took advantage of the beautiful Florida weather this week (northerners, don't kill me). I snapped this picture at the park. My sweet girl loves to be outside. I can't wait until I can spend all my time with her. It is so hard to have to be away from her during the day.
I might of gone a little overboard with shopping for my class. Yup, that is all for them. I use a classroom economy system. Students earn money in various ways. I host a classroom store once a month. The students have to pay me rent and then they can spend what they wish at the store. I'm hoping this will instill a sense of money responsibility for when they are older.
This was a gift from a parent. A very unexpected gift.I guess everyone knows that I am obsessed with owls. I love it!
I think I jinxed myself with my post on behavior management. You would swear that I knew nothing about behavior management on Monday and Tuesday It as awful. A.W.F.U.L. The kiddos were so mean to one another. It hurt my heart. I read Chalk One Up To The Teacher blog post about a Kindness Revolution and I just knew had to do something like that. I created some kindness posters and had our SUPER talented art teacher create a beehive. The kiddos write an act of kindness that someone did for the on a bee. I then hang the bee by the hive. I'm going to be writing an in depth post about this. Stay tuned.
My kiddos worked so hard in centers this week. I told them that they were completing centers made by me. They were SO excited to complete each task. Need a little extra to your centers? My center pack includes plurals, suffixes, and synonym activities. Your kiddos will have a blast completing each activity.
Well, there you have it. My five randoms from the week. How was your week? Leave a comment below.
