Let me just say that this is from the second week of school...... most of my first graders are much better than this now! I never bring any of my students' work home but I found this downstairs and I just wanted to hug myself because they have come so far this year!!!!!!!! I haven't kept any of their work but next year, we are going to be portfolio-ing it up, that is for sure!
What did I do this weekend?
I worked on my final project for my Cross-Cultural Education class. After Tuesday, I will be halfway to my ESL endorsement! YAY!
I started crocheting a baby blanket! Typically I am not a crocheter, I knit for the most part, but I found a pattern online and my BTF (best teaching friend) helped me get it started. Here is what it looks like so far.
The next stripe will be brown! I love how it is turning out so far.
I also read a big chunk of this book:
It's by the same author as A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, which I love. What a different world it was in the 1920s!
I also got an award from Heidi at Raki's Rad Resources!
When I checked out her blog, I found that she has some GREAT ideas!! Her most recent post is about 10 different ways to use sidewalk chalk in educational ways. Love it!
Lastly, tomorrow I am planning on joining up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her monthly 12 For 12 post! You should, too. All you have to do is take 12 pictures tomorrow (the 12th day of the month) to document your day. Get your camera ready and snap away!!
