My Week In Pictures!!
We had our Vocabulary Parade this morning. It was AWESOME! My kids were ah-dorable in their word costumes and they rocked it! We walked up to the high school for our parade and then paraded around our elementary building. They had so much fun!! Today was one of those days when I looked around and almost got teary eyed that they would leave me in 9 days. I love my class. 🙂
We had fun with my Forces & Motion Unit this week! We learned a lot about push, pull, friction, and gravity! Next week we will finish up with our playground missions – it was so rainy this week!
We practiced counting coins in small groups during Math Lab. Coins have been taken out of Common Core, so we save this skill for the end of the year. I have to say, saving it for the end of the year allowed my kiddos to catch on SO quickly! They did a great job.
I spent a good part of my week finishing up one of three presentations I’m giving this summer for teachers. This one is finally done! YAY! These next two weeks will be fully consumed with finishing my second presentation so they are ready to go in June! I can’t wait to meet lots of fabulous local teachers, share some fresh ideas, and collaborate together!
Guess who got a fancy new camera?! I’m in love with it! After lots of help from my blogging buddies, I went with a Canon Rebel T3i. I have A LOT of learning to do this summer! I’m hoping I can take a photography class because the camera slightly scares me. It’s pretty intimidating since I usually just use my iPhone. I felt like I needed to be grown up and get a real camera for all of the pictures I take.
My sweet friend, Laura, introduced me to these CUTE camera bags from JoTotes. They were having a sale so I snagged this adorable mint one to hold the lenses and the camera!
Confession….I found the camera bag first. It was sooo cute that the camera came AFTER the camera bag. That’s probably not the correct way to do that. #ilovebagsandpurses
Thanks for letting me share my week in pictures! I was sick with the flu on Sunday and Monday, so the first half of the week was a bit hazy for me. It was filled with sleeping, sleeping, and more sleeping. I’m finally starting to feel like myself again! 🙂
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
