What's in the Bag?

 Any guesses what all I've brought home today?

I hate bringing work home, but this is the first Saturday that I *won't* be working since school started. I'll be coaching at our first volleyball tournament. So excited!

My homework this weekend...

Book order
Grading handwriting 
Grading placement assessments
New science curriculum
(need to plan for next week)

After last week when I had so many pictures, I couldn't share them all...this is the ONLY picture. :(
Short weeks always seem so much harder to me! 

Here's a quick rundown of our week (without pictures):

We practiced Daily 5 rounds--ready to rock and roll on Monday (I hope)!

We continued our Addition Strategies unit and started on Subtraction Strategies as well.

Speaking of love the simplest games. Give them two dice (one with larger numbers) and let them roll. They write a subtraction number sentence and solve. Happiness all around. :-)

We learned the "rule of 5" for illustrating. Not sure where I got this, but the kiddos have to make sure their illustrations have 5 details and 5 colors.

We studied The Pledge of Allegiance in K-2 social studies and made these books from Sliding into Second. 

And finally, I was adventurous this year and ordered some stability balls for my class. I only got 5 for now--wanted to try them out. I'm drawing names for now and making observations as to how it helps--or distracts--my kiddos. I can't believe I didn't take a picture of them! I promise I will soon.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I have the same issue! There are weeks I have picture overload, then weeks where I'm reaching and putting way too much effort into figuring out what to take a picture of. Hope you enjoy your weekend!!

  2. Weekends are all about homework for me. At least I get to sleep in. :) Good luck at your v-ball tournament!
