Here's a quick look at my week...
1. I've spent a lot of my down time loving on this little sweetie! He really seems to like his new bed.
2. We are studying Plant Growth and Development in science. Our school system uses Foss kits that are sent to us four times a year. My students really enjoy all the hands on activities that the kits include. This week we observed dry bees. I don't know if you ever smelled dry bees but they stink! Students had to glue their bee on a toothpick for observation. Several girls were scared to death of the bees. I assured them that they wouldn't come to life and sting them. Here are our dried bees on a stick!
3. This week my class went to see The Hundred Dresses at our local theatre. Two of my students had parts in the play, so it was fun to watch them act. The girls did a wonderful job. One of them had a lead role as Peggy. She was amazing! She is in the yellow dress.
Every student that went to see the play was given a copy of the book. The Hundred Dresses is a great book to read when addressing bullying with your students.
4. I've been working on a math workstation activity for a first grade teacher in my building. It should be finished this weekend. They're called Math Mats. Here's a sneak preview!
This is what I've been up to this week! Head over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to link up with Kacey and give us your Five for Friday!
