On Monday I went to school after having enjoyed a week of vacation time with 2/3 of my real life children. My vacation time went way too fast, but I was pretty happy to get back to a routine. Luckily Mondays are our iPad and library days. I'm getting better at using my iPad days in educational ways. I came home on Monday feeling pretty tired.
On Tuesday I got a free download from Carson Dellosa
. I took a school iPad home to play with. The book, Run! Predators,
is very engaging. From the first sentence, "Have you ever seen a bear with a shopping cart?" to the Bengal Tiger at the end, I was prey to a common core aligned non-fiction book! Many of the animals had features that allow the reader to hear the sound the animal makes...Sweet! The map feature allows you to quickly see how close the predator lives in relationship to you! I plan on getting more books from this series to feed my non-fiction predators. After devouring this book, I was still tired.
I have a download code for one lucky winner! Will it be you? I hope you aren't too tired to enter!

On Wednesday we started playing a new game in the math work stations. The kids enjoyed playing the Very Smart Mathapillar! I had found awesome sparkly pom-poms for sale right after Easter. Here they are in action. Click on the picture if you'd like a copy of the mathapillars! I came home on Wednesday still feeling tired.
Thursday brought the story of Doubting Thomas to my class. I'll be giving chapel in a couple of weeks, so I'll pass it off to my owlets and let them do chapel for me! They are ready and will enjoy leading the school in worshiping our awesome God who is NEVER tired or crabby! They are practicing this Doubting Thomas story to present during chapel time. I know that some of you can use this too so click HERE
for this freebie. I came home on Thursday later than usual and I was still tired.

I'm going to watch Merlin with my family now. I'm going to wrap up in a blanket and I'll probably fall asleep before the end. In the morning I'll wake up refreshed and and ready to fly into the weekend!
