So I had every intention of finishing my post for the Five for Friday linky party on Friday. However, I was out three days this week at a training, our beginning of year assessment data is due in a week, and I have yet to get conference prep done for conferences that start this week...so needless to say it did not happen. However, I am happy to be linking up now, and doesn't Funday sound exciting!
I mentioned in my Science Saturday post last week that we were researching different science careers using the cool Science A-Z career sheets. The final posters were turned in while I was gone, and I am so impressed with their hard work and creativity. Here's a peek at a few of the careers my students investigated. I modeled a poster for them and outlined the requirements. They took it from there!
We had a blast with Celebrate Freedom Week this week. Unfortunately, due to being out for three days, I didn't get to do all the lessons I usually do (including a birthday party for the Constitution where we make mini-apple pies). However, we still had a blast learning about the Preamble and why the Constitution is important. I love using We the Kids as a way to introduce the big vocabulary and what it means.
I also love using the Preamble song from School House Rock...needless to say, I've been singing School House Rock all weekend. I dare you to listen to this song and NOT have it stuck in your head.
So there you have it! I am working on a Peek at My Week. However, I am not sure if I will finish it before the week actually begins. I've got to get working on the conference forms for the 7 conferences I have this week...YIKES!!
