It has been almost 2 months since I've blogged. My question to all you (if I have any followers left) is - how do you all find the time to do school stuff, be a mom, and a blogger? I stay at school until 5ish, come home to cook dinner and help my youngest with homework, then I sit down to grade papers and do other things to get ready for the next day. It seems that I am never going to get ahead...ugh!
This week is a three day week for me! FALL BREAK is only 2 days, but it is better than none. I really need a few days off! Since it a short week, we are not doing our normal weekly reading story and activities. I am really excited because I have several fun things planned to do this week on bats. This includes reading Stellaluna and Bats by Gail Gibbons. I will try to remember to take pictures this week and post them on here.
This past week at school, a local farm came to school and put on a short program about the making of their ice cream and what it was like to work on the farm. They even brought a calf. The kids adored it. The best part at the end of the program, they gave each student a mini ice cream cone and a glass of the best chocolate milk ever! I was one happy teacher because they gave me a half-gallon. If you are ever in Knoxville, TN in October, you must check out Cruze Farms! Here are some pictures from the program.
Have a great week!
