Not all of them...some of them are my solid rocks...and I tell them how much I love them for it all the time! And I do love ALL my students, of course, I really do...but this week, they have just made me feel like it's the first day all over again.
BUT, I have been feeling some love too....
This little note came from a parent on the bottom of my newsletter (I have parents sign the bottom saying they read the newsletter) - this just totally made my day!
AND, when I was checking their Spider Math Centers one day, I found this little love note...melt my heart!
Speaking of Spiders...my kids are LOVING our spiders lessons...In fact, there's no way we could finish in a week, so we're going to have to overlap with my bat unit next week....
To start with, we talked about what was in our schema...and as we've been learning, we've been moving what was in our schema to the misconceptions box if we need to.
(look at everything they know already!)
We also did a tree map...and this is one of the mornings that just made me feel like things actually work in my room! It was written on the board to finish their tree map in their journals (they had started it the day before, but didn't have time to finish) as part of their morning work...and they actually did it!!! I didn't even have to tell them...it was such a beautiful sight!
Check out my Spider Literacy Centers...there are more pix to come next week!
