Aloha friends! I am back to work and have officially been back for two whole weeks! I'm not going to lie that first week back was tough! 5 full days of instruction without any specials and 7 year olds just coming back from summer. I was thoroughly exhausted by the end of that first week!!0
After a much needed weekend of doing absolutely nothing I headed into the second week refreshed. This week was much smoother and it actually seemed to fly by. Here's a look at what we have been doing.
We created our Surf Buddies and they came out so cute! You can grab this Freebie HERE.
We started learning about Timelines and created a fun Birthday Timeline along with this graphing activity.
We read the story "Have You Filled A Bucket Today" and created our bucket filler chart.
We also read the following books which I love for Back To School.
We ended this week with a fun art project.
This project was a lot of fun to make. It came from HERE. My class really enjoyed learning some facts about the first Olympic games and sharing their favorite events.
I started this week with a clean desk and I am really hoping I can keep it this way for just a little while. We'll see how long it lasts!!
Did you notice my new lesson planner? I absolutely love it!
I think it suits me very well. I just need to look at it to transport me to the beach in those stressful times!
I have to say I was so busy that I didn't even think to take pictures of my classroom setup. This week I will get it all together and share with you next week.
I hope you all had a fantastic week whether you were in the classroom or still on vacation!
