Aloha! Who's happy it's Friday?
It's been a pretty good week, but who can't be happy about Friday!!!
I haven't linked up in awhile with Kasey from Doodle Bugs Teaching and thought it would be fun to share a few pics from my week.
We started off the week with a fun writing activity using M&M's and Skittles.
I gave each student 5 M&M's and 5 Skittles. They tasted each and
had to decide which was their favorite. Of course they loved it!
We also started our Magnet unit this week.
We experimented with different items
and then sorted them into Magnetic and Non-Magnetic
pockets in our science journals.
In social studies we are working on Economics.
We learned about Natural, Capital and Human resources.
This activity was great for students to see how
producers use all of these resources to make and sell their products.
This week I also went to a 2 day training on the other side of the island.
This is a view from the Pali Highway. So beautiful!
Kaneohe is where our training was, which is about an hour from where I live.
It's always nice to get to other parts of the island.
I spent Thursday and Friday in a Thinking Maps training geared for K-2.
I gained lots of ideas and will be taking them back to my team to share out.
There are so many ways to use them in all areas.
I look forward to implementing some new ideas right away.
I am really going to hate driving alone to school next year.
Who will listen to me ramble on about waves, surfers, whales and tourist traffic?!
I hope you had a fantastic week as well. Head on over to Kasey's blog to check
out some of her cute February activities.
