I can't believe I haven't posted since Sunday. Things are crazy busy at school and at home. Don't forget that this is my first year in First Grade. I had no idea how nutty the kids get, nor how much I would want to pack into 6 weeks.
In addition, I signed up to be in a spelling bee. Yes, really. I will be on a team of three. It's tonight over at our high school. I don't have to stand up alone and I get to write the word on a white board. I'm a pretty good speller. Now I feel worried that you'll look for spelling errors on my blog. I'm excited, but I woke up with a cold and a sore throat so that might slow me down a bit. No excuses, I still think I can spell just as well.
My plant unit is wrapping up. The kids Lap Books are looking amazing. I asked the art teacher if she would let them study Georgia O'Keefe and Vincent Van Gogh flowers and do paintings of the plants they are growing for our project. She delivered them yesterday. They are in watercolor and cray-pas. They are so totally beautiful and colorful. I laminated them and it made them even prettier! I am going to attach them to the back of the lap book. I will post pics this weekend.
I finished our NWEA computerized testing and the kids did pretty well. I am halfway through DRA2s. So with testing almost out of the way. I just have report cards and reviewing work.
Does anyone have suggestions or links to their own posts for making the end of the year less nuts?
