My kiddos had fun making the football players and cheerleaders from Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher. I changed them up a bit to make them look like the Tennessee players. They turned out so cute. We tested almost all week (like 3-4 hours a day) so this was a welcome break from the testing.
After I was in a bad mood because of the game, I was putting my leftovers from lunch in my refrigerator and a container of French onion soup fell out. The bottom of the container busted and French onion soup was all over my kitchen floor. I've already mopped 4 times since then and it's still sticky and smells like onions.
I did have some good news today. My Donor's Choose project for science resources from my classroom was funded. The people at Daily Kos (a blog that was unfamiliar to me) pick a science project each week and their readers try to get it funded. It was amazing how fast it was funded! I am so excited to get some hands-on materials and science books. I love Donor's Choose!!!
In other news, I have finished the response journal prompts for Unit 2 in Treasures. I think my kiddos are getting so much better at responding to their reading and rewording the question in their answers.
Here's a couple of samples:
There are 10 total prompts included and you may be able to use them without using Treasures.
Please leave me a comment if you grab them so I know how many people are using them and if I will continue to put them on my blog.
I am leaving you with a sneak preview of my next unit. It's a group of games for centers or extra practice.
