Just some pictures to share today! I have a new obsession with the Picasa download! You can make collages very easily and I much recommend it.
First, I wanted to show off my clean room!
I guess this just looks moderately neat... but that entire windowsill by the circle table was COVERED with stuff. It's the only surface in my classroom where I can stack things, and stack I do. Before the open house I just shoved everything into that blue plastic tub there. I love the way the windowsill looks now!!
One of my little ladies was in India for three weeks and she brought me back a gift!
It hangs up and each panel is a pocket! It is so pretty and I love it!!
We also got to eat Indian candy!
It was a chocolate bar that was a little nougat-y in the middle. It says it had caramel but it wasn't overwhelmingly carmely. Yummo!
Last week we read The Pokey Little Puppy, and one of my second graders made a copycat version starring kittens. It was quite lengthy, but the last two pages were my favorites.
The End............ or is it? DUN DUN DUN! Haha!!!!! I always say "dun dun dun" at the end of our Magic Tree House chapters. This seriously cracked me up yesterday. I loved it more because her story was incredibly not suspenseful, as it was about kittens eating dinner. Haha!
Tomorrow we start our ABC Countdown! The last 26 days of school are upon us.... ridic. Are you doing an ABC Countdown? Here is my schedule if you need some ideas! Just click on the picture. :) And if you're interested, and want to know more about a specific day, let me know. Or stay tuned because I will be excited (hopefully) to post about the days of our countdown.
I am really hoping that I don't regret making tomorrow animal day..... let's see if we can keep it together!
