My girls are LOVING this warm weather. I am too!!!! We hatched chicks at school so my girls are having fun with them on the weekends and in the evenings! They will go to a farm on Wednesday! Thank goodness… They’re starting to stink!!!! This week we also planted a little garden… Our back yard is a work in progress, so my husband made me this garden on wheels. I hope it works!!!
My kiddos will be performing a few plays for their parents next week… They have been working hard to create their scenery!!!
I came to school on Wednesday and quickly remembered that we were going to be on a special testing schedule. Our big kiddos are taking the KPREP! Bad for us because we have a third grade class right beside us! And… they can hear every word in our classroom. That means we had to be silent!! I had to be silent too! Apparently, I have a loud voice when I’m teaching/talking… ha. I had panned for us to work in groups to practice our plays… That definitely wasn’t going to work with testing going on! So… Thankfully, I had planning the first hour of the day. I decided that I wanted to spend the last few weeks of the school year reviewing the various reading strategies that my students have learned to implement throughout the year..
We read a Bad Case of Stripes and discussed character traits/change.
Thankfully the second trimester has been MUCH better on me… but I’m still having a hard time getting back into the swing of creating! By the end of the day my brain is gone!!! And… it’s still gone on the weekends!! Hopefully all of that energy and brain power will come back soon… Until then, well… I’m not really sure!! So… I decided to do a little shopping for my house. I really need to stay away from Pier1. I can go crazy in that store! Especially when I have a coupon. I buy NOTHING at full price… but when I think I’m getting a great deal I have a problem!
Last but not least….. I now have an embroidery machine! I have not tried it out yet, but I am really excited! I’m thinking that embroidery might be fun because I won’t have to use too much brain power… we shall see… I’ll keep you updated!!!
