We introduced our "Just Three Words" project for Veterans Day this week. Students started creating posters and other media to show veterans how much we appreciate their service. I learned this year that "Veteran(s) Got Swag".... we may need a few more mentor sentences to make it grammatically correct but you have to love 5th grade heart :)
My pups were dressed and ready for Halloween, too bad it poured down rain! Boo! Raincoats and umbrellas were the number one Halloween accessories in Cincy! So, now we have a large bucket of candy for our house and the pups had to be paparazzi'd since I didn't have any trick-or-treaters.
One one homeroom is half way through the great state race! They even acquired Hawaii! They have 26 postcards but the other classrooms are not far behind... I can't believe how motivated students are to get to the finish. Although, we did promise a "sweet" victory treat! If you want more information on The Great State Race check it out here.
After a very, very long Friday, I'm exhausted. Plus, I think I'm getting sick. I have a sore throat, my nose is runny, and my eyes burn. This is no good. I ordered pizza so I could get a 2-liter of Sprite and I've already take some E-mergency. I'm in desperation mode. I
hope need I feel human again to get caught up on grading and some lesson planning for our next region. Ugh. At least I have a few days off to get better and a snuggle buddy!
Hope you had a spook-tacular week!
