Flow Charts (Freebie!)

How was your long weekend? I had a four day weekend and it was lovely. I read a LOT, especially this wonderful book.
Any Tina Fey fans out there? I have just started getting into 30 Rock and I think she is HILARIOUS.

I totally forgot my camera at school because I was in a rush to leave since I had class tonight, but I can still share some things!

Today in Social Studies, we learned about flow charts. Our unit has been about government, and we used a flow chart last week to learn that when community members work together, they can make changes! Our book's example was that the bus stations in Harlem were taken down to make road repairs, but were never put back up. The kids were super, SUPER concerned about the poor people of Harlem being cold in the winter. Thankfully that problem was solved.

Today we reviewed flow charts and made our own. They had to come up with their own problems and potential solutions. So far, the best problem was, "There was one prince and two princesses."

This is big stuff, people.

Anyway, when I was looking for a flow chart online for them to fill out, I couldn't find anything that looked like what I needed, so I made my own. You can have it if you want! Just click on the picture. Let me know if you take it. :) 
And here are a few pictures for ya... sadly, from my phone.
Here's the pupster in his little seatbelt harness on our way to el banco yesterday. Unbeknownst to me... el banco was not open! Oh wells. We had a fun little ride. 
My first box of cookies came in!! I got 2 more after this. And it is only the beginning...
And another Hey Girl for your viewing pleasure. This one made me laugh so hard, especially because my boyfriend totally knows what TpT stands for!!

  2. I LOVE Tina Fey. She's my favorite. My brother calls me Liz Lemon. I don't think he means it as a compliment, but I pretend it is. Her book was great.

  4. Oh my goodness, the hubby and I LOVE watching 30 Rock! Almost every night before bed, we Netflix an episode or 2. I LOVE when Tracy randomly lifts his shirt and pooches out his tummy. :)

    Oh, Blerg.

  5. I must have been in a funk when I started this book - I'll have to go and start it over again - there must be something good about it if so many teachers love it! Ryan Gosling...sigh!
