One day left!!!! If my kiddos get scores based on their effort then I would be super happy!!! They have been workin sooooooo hard and I am sooooo proud of them:D I wanna plan something special for Friday....don't know what.....any ideas anyone??????
Now me on the other hand.......I'm a stressed out mess!!! Thinking it's cuz I don't have enough coffee in my system........and last night I woke up at 3!!!!! That's A.M. and didn't get back to sleep......cuz I couldn't shut my head off!!! Hate it when that happens!!
I am too excited to be introducing our Lit. Circles tomorrow after the test. I'm not quite sure how it's gonna go down with trying to get it in with Daily 5....I'll post about it soon though cuz I've had some questions about how I do it:) With Earth day coming up....and the test the only thing on my mind.....that's right, couldn't think past it.......I wanted to repost a couple of things we have done recently that would be sort of cute for Earth day activities.......
First, our "If I was a Lorax for a Day, this is how I would make the World a Better Place" paper. That was the prompt I gave the kids and then after they wrote their paper, they topped it off with a Lorax. (I read the book to them first and saw these Lorax toppers on Pinterest somewhere....can't remember where...sorry)
Of course these aren't hanging in my room now because of testing and dark, depressing test mode:// But that's over tomorrow afternoon:)
Staying with the Lorax theme I made this worksheet that the kiddos did during Work on Writing in our Daily 5. I have a ton of magazines (Nat. Geo, Big Backyard, Discovery Kids). They chose a magazine, then an article and read it and then completed the Fun Facts with the Lorax sheet.
You can get this free at my Teachers Notebook store HERE. The kiddos had a lot of fun with it and learned tons too, as a matter of fact, so did I as I was grading them:) I actually copied this on both sides (saving trees:) ) so they did the activity on 2 different articles.
That's all I've got for now:) Hoping.....no praying to get a good nights sleep tonight:) If ya hear a YAHOOOOOOOOOOO tomorrow around 11:15ish that will be me and my peeps celebrating the test being OVER!!!!
