Stellaluna SWBSF Freebie!

OK....

So....

some of us were talking one day...

and I showed them how I was ready for my bat unit...



Can I tell you??

a paper cutter is THE best investment (besides, of course the laminator)..and this is a cheapy one from Walmart (eek! don't tell on me that I went there one day..lol)

Once I started cutting with this, the time I spent cutting out stuff was cut into THIRDS...lol...

yes, we DO have paper cutters at work, but when I bring stuff home, print up and laminate at home, this is MUCH more convenient....
besides...ours at work are pretty dull...so I don't do my good stuff there...

Anyway...back to the post...

so, we haven't even SCRATCHED the surface with bats this week - it is TOTALLY going into next week...

BUT, we did do some reading response activities.

We did the "SWBSF" activity in my All About Bats unit...




I NEVER knew about this until I started blogging... and OMGosh!!

It. is. uh-ma-zing!!!  so simple. yet so effective.

click the pic to get a copy for your students!

Then, I taught them how to take THAT information and make a paragraph....



It's a work-in progress...
 they have such a hard time with writing...


So, everyday after lunch, I have to have my chocolate...

it helps me to not binge on the junk food...ok?? 

ok.

Anyway, so I ate TWO Dove candies...

you know them..

the OH SO DELICIOUS chocolate??

uhhhhhhhh.....(envision Homer like drooling)


lol...

anyway, so I ate my TWO pieces...

and they BOTH said the SAME thing!! 



Think someone is trying to tell me something??

Well, my friends...

I AM going to do something for myself...

I'm doing the MUD RUN this weekend!!!

So excited!!


Some girl friends and I are doing it - and my hubs is doing it too!!

I'm totally going to kick his booty!! lol

I totally will - he may be a man...and a firefighter...but I WILL beat him!! haha!!

So tomorrow is a student holiday - teacher inservice day...my oh my, wouldn't I just LOVE to have an entire day to work in my room???

yeah.

right.

I LOVE SWBST (or F)! It's also good for planning a story. Graphic organizers ROCK. So does Dove chocolate. I don't chew them, though. I just let them melt slowly in my mouth. Talk about delish! Have fun mud running!

Start Feeling Young Again Being on the cutting edge of technology means that you always need to be looking forward and the nickel and lithium rechargeable battery is a doorstop to the old hallways of the antiquated and the old. If somehow you fell down then there is no need to get worried about the rechargeable hearing aids because normal physical stresses can do nothing to them.
