This week, we're hittin' the beach!!
No....not on a field trip - although my kids have told me that REALLY would love that as a field trip - I think I'm rubbing off on them! haha!
We've been doing my beach-themed centers...
They brought in their towels and sunglasses and have been doing centers while lounging on their towels.
Tomorrow I'm bringing my beach umbrella and maybe beach chair - since you know...they're always in my car anyway...ha!
You never know when you're going to make a trip to the beach...right, Corinna?
Back on track.
Another activity we did today was a glyph from this book that I got during Scholastic Dollar Days Deals... (still going on, I think!)
Now, let me say that I never really did glyphs because I thought they were just too easy - waste of time - yada yada yada...
Was I wrong.
Ummmm....they had a HARD time with this!
I think it's the following directions they struggled with (go figure).
We did the beach pail one since it goes with our theme, and they were a little confused on it - lol.
So I've decided, I'm doing a glyph AT LEAST once a month next year (along with Reagan's quilts!)...and maybe with my themes :)
Only 3 more half days!
Which, ok, I'm excited about.
But that also means that one of my best friends and fellow 2nd grade teachers/podmate and Autumn's friend (her daughter) are moving away!!
Insert sad crying face here.
I'm a little sad.
Ok - a lot sad.
This is THE sweetest, nicest, kindest person you'll ever meet. She has done so much for our family and been such a good friend to me and Autumn.
I was doing the dishes tonight after dinner and started thinking about how I'm going to have to say good-bye, and I actually started tearing up.
Ugh. I'm going to hate Friday.
Oh well my friends.
Friday isn't here yet- enjoy what we have right now - right?!
Hope y'all had a Terrific Tuesday!
