I know it must sound terrible of me to be excited for spring break but we haven't been off (aside from weekends but those don't count since we're still doing work for our kiddos) since MLK but that was only a day! I am looking forward to relaxation and possibly doing lots of exercising because I can feel myself packing on the pounds. I honestly don't know how some people manage a family and work and still have time to work out. Kuddo's to them, seriously!
Okay back to teaching! This week we were finally introduced to adjectives, I LOVE adjectives. I think the kiddo's do too! Well I totally got this off Pinterest (where else) and I had the kids make pictures of themselves and write at least three adjectives about themselves. Well some of them went above and beyond because well their first graders and they are ego-maniacs, ha ha! Below you can see the children's pictures and what they wrote. I think they turned out really stinkin' cute!
|Here are the adjectives the kids came up with for me. Aren't they too kind!|
|I love the lips on this one. She claims to be stylish, my kind of girl!|
|This is a completely unrelated picture. Our school had a fundraiser and the children who sold the most chocolate got to throw a pie in the principal and two other teacher's faces. The kids were SOOOOOOOO excited! I had a good chuckle myself! I can't post pics of the pie covered ones because they would probably kill me!|
This week we are moving on to controlled-r with ar words. We are going to be doing the Pirate Mark lesson from the wonderful Babbling Abby! I know the kids are just going to be ga-ga over it!
Well fellow readers and bloggers I need to start getting ready to go out. I'm going to the teacher store (love it) and Central Market for lunch with my mom. Sunday is always Mom and Daughter Day. Maybe if I'm good she'll buy me something! (I kid, I kid, errrr, maybe!) Ok see ya!
