Educational Chaos

This week was one of those weeks where we had to throw schedules and plans out the window... 

I call it educational chaos.

It started on Tuesday when our K-2 students traveled to the other building for a huge pep rally. It was the day of our last home basketball game and the staff had something special planned for the kids.


 It was great!
P.S. The crazy guy on the black team is our superintendent. His wife, in the red tutu, headed up the red team. :-)
The video even made the news--super exciting for our little district!

Then on Wednesday, we got to head back to the other school for  Body Venture! Have you heard of it?


It may be old news to some of you, but I got to experience it for the first time this week and it was so cool! My students loved it!

To summarize, you start your experience in the cafeteria and become a "food." Then you travel through the body learning all about nutrition and health along the way. 

We got back to our school in time for a little bit of math. What better way to review and practice perimeter than to use the Body Venture booklets we received?

 
Then on Friday afternoon, PTO held their Walk-a-Thon. This is their main fundraising event throughout the year. Kids collect donations and then we walk--although it is much more fun than that! They have obstacles set up, music and dancing along the way, and of course a yummy treat at the end.

What can I say? There was a lot of jumping!

So while we didn't get to everything I had on my lesson plans for the week, we did have fun AND learned along the way!

Educational chaos in a nutshell.

Have a blessed day!
