Hey there! I'm linking up with Doodlebugs to share some random things about my week.
I gave up my day off on Monday to go to an Anita Archer workshop and it was soooooooooo worth it! If you have not heard of her, clink the link to go her website on explicit instruction. There is a wealth of great information--including video clips.
I love this!
I have struggled with how to teach writing ever since I became a teacher. I know some people have said just let them write, don't "squash" their creativity, etc.
I have tried that approach, and what I have found is that those that are good at it, are good at it. And those that struggle, struggle.
It was nice to hear that providing some guidance is acceptable and actually a good thing.
We've been working on adverbs that last couple of weeks, so it was time to pull out these fun task cards to review.
I'd share a link, but I can't remember where I got them and don't have the file here at home to look it up. If they are yours, feel free to let me know!
We did a two day art project inspired by Kandinsky (thanks to this blog post). They painted their backgrounds and then added the tree pieces the next day (forgot to take a picture of our finished work). Make sure you follow me on Instagram. I'll share some there next week.
This is my daughter's failed attempt to capture my vehicle reaching 111,111 miles while I was driving. What can I say? My kids have a thing about numbers... You may remember my son was disappointed to miss the 100,000 mile mark and it was a once in a lifetime opportunity...LOL! ;-)
Spring fever is officially here!
After a week of temperatures in the 70s here, I have been looking for opportunities to get outside for extra recess!
Enjoy your weekend!
