I survived Field Day with the kidos. We enjoyed some water games, freezie pops, and a read aloud. I also managed to get some things organized in the classroom. It is a strange feeling cleaning and packing up someone's room. Every day for the past week, I have brought a box of something home! I tried not to buy too much for this job because it was not my forever school. I did buy a few things for end of the year gifts for the kidos.
I have 7 and 1/2 days with my kidos left. Some of the kidos are ready for the fun days - the upcoming field trip and the field day. Here are a few photos of the activities we have done:
Kids will be decorating the gift bags and writing notes this week.
I went with colorful card stock for the hand prints.
We started a unit on plants and the kids love it! I actually had two pages of "What I know about plants"
I had my students draw their own life cycles.
I am finishing up a unit on measurement this week and then giving my students their last math test of the year next Monday. I think Tuesday will be game day in math.
On a non-teaching note : I did an outdoor spin at my gym to support the local cancer research hospital. There is a huge bike ride in a few weeks and every year my gym drags the spin bikes outside to raise money in honor of the bike ride. Here is a pick of me during the ride:
Today I went to an art festival with the husband. After three days of rain the sunshine was wonderful! I bought two cute things from two local artists:
It's back work and rain tomorrow! It's my last full week - I can't believe it! Happy Reading !
I cannot believe May is over. Where did the time go? I have 12 days left with students. I am sad about it because I like the kids. Plus, I will have worked at another school with no job for next year. It makes me wonder what God has in store for me! Anyway, here is what I did this on Sunday:
Yeah - ignore that bag of mulch. I ran out of steam when it came to the last bag. LOL.
I have a few more things to do with flowers, but there is the start!
I am now onto working on parent volunteer gifts, Father's Day gifts, and a mini plant unit. There's a lot to do with the kids and not a lot of time left! YIKES !
