First... this was a SHORT week; however, it was a LONG week! Short in that my work week consisted of only two days. Long in that my work week consisted of only two days. The other three days I was stuck indoors due to the extreme brr! temperatures. The cold is over for now, but there is something just as bad in our future. Take a look at the prospective weather for mid-week next week... I don't even want to mention that I am in the pink! Pun intended but not in a good way.
Next, we did manage to get a LOT of work accomplished in just two days.
Ms. Murphy, my student teacher, completed the perfect tense craftivity (one of Deb Hanson's projects) that she started with my sixers last week, pre-polar vortex. They turned out awesome!
We celebrated Catholic Schools Week this week. Unfortunately, most of the events that we had planned got nixed due to the cold weather. We did have Throwback Thursday, however, where our students were invited to dress as their parents would've dressed whilst they were in school. Ms.Murphy surprised all of us by wearing her old school uniform from when she was a student at our school. The kiddos LOVED it!!!!!
And finally something non-school related... my fur babies! Look, they actually sat together on my lap for the FIRST time. Granted it was for only a couple of minutes, but that is REAL progress. AND it only took seven weeks!
Oops, almost forgot... Since it's Friday, it's time for a FREEBIE. This week's freebie is in honor of Chinese New Year which begins today: Gung Hay Fat Choy! Here are some brag tags to share with your students. You can download them HERE or by clicking on the graphic.
