When I walked outside yesterday morning this is what I saw:
|It looks like the moon is resting on the branch!|
As luck would have it "my" computer lab was being used for other purposes yesterday afternoon. This meant that at the last minute I had to come up with alternative plans for my afternoon classes. Extra recess is quite popular especially with the middle school crowd! After they got to play with my new Corian blocks and play Who Can Build the Highest Tower game we headed out to listen to the songs of birds and look for signs of spring.
Things are pretty slow in first grade this week with achievement testing going on. There are somethings we aren't willing to give up this week, however. We have to keep reading and laughing through Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, and reading Clifford books. We keep working a little each day at counting money, too!
|Didn't my Firsties do a great job turning Clifford into a big, RED dog?|
Happy First Day of Spring to you! I hope your weather is as delightful as mine!
|It's fun going from first grade in the morning to seventh and eighth in the afternoon!|
