Well, hi! Hope your week has been great!
1. My week started off awesome and so productive at school!
On Monday we spent some time partner reading from our book bags...
Anytime we make a student reader together as a class, I have my students keep them at school in their book bags. That way, we all have the same books and can use them to partner read.
We also completed our first personal narratives. We wrote this one, about trick-or-treating, together as a class. They are ready to dive into the next one on their own!
2. Monday's end-of-day recess was super cold. The wind chill was 6 degrees and boy was is WINDY! So glad I had my awesome recess partners to brave it with me!!
I posted this pic on Instagram.... you can follow me HERE.
3. The snow and wind didn't let up and Tuesday was our first snow day of the school year. In November! Before Thanksgiving! So crazy. Crossing my fingers that this isn't a sign of what our winter will be like! Missing my sunshine already!!
BUT....we made the most of our winter-like day and put up our Christmas tree! I had two happy little helpers!
4. Wednesday we were back at school and busy! I re-discovered my "whisper phones" after forgetting about them for several years, and I've started "Whisper Phone Wednesday" with my morning reading group. They LOVE these things!!
5. Thursday was another snow day! SO much blowing and drifting snow. I can't even believe it. The local meteorologists announced yesterday that this is the snowiest November ever in my area. Lucky us!
BUT...we made the most of another snow day and went out to get groceries. On a weekday! It was bliss! No weekend crowds or lines or empty shelves. And of course having my sweet helper along made it even better.
Two more days until Thanksgiving Break for me! Happy weekend!!!
