I have two four day work weeks in a row. The students will be hyped up the next few weeks between the field trips, half day, awards day, and field day!
I started a poetry unit in April because it was our state testing month. Then I had to go be a scoring leader. Then it was the beginning of end of the year reading testing, I just decided to keep going with the poetry unit since the kidos loved it.
Here are a few random pictures from the unit:
One of my favorite poetic devices.

Do you use "I can" statements where you teach?
Here is a sample poem I wrote.
I asked the kidos to find the poetic devices.
I love when I have to take a day off and the kids leave me messages!
I do not know where April went. Too many days of testing and then make-ups. I had to be a scoring leader, so there goes another teaching day!
Here is this month's Currently:
I love Nascar. I am a huge Jeff Gordan fan and I am sad that this is his last year.
This weekend was so sunny and after the long NY winter, it is SO NICE!
I need to get some food for this house. I will be shopping later!
It is suppose to be 77 by Friday and I cannot wait!
I have been tired lately and need to get back into a good sleep pattern,
I always spend time by the pool reading. I am looking forward to some relaxation and summer reading! I would love to go to Disney, but I do not think it is going to happen. I'd also love to go see a Broadway Show, but I don't think it is going to happen.
Go read some more Currently. It's a great way to find new blogs:
