Happy Frida...oops...Thur...oops...Wednesday! Hard to believe it's only Wednesday. Is it me or has this week progressed along s-l-o-w-l-y? In one way I suppose I should be quite happy as the wrinkles on my face are surfacing a bit slower than usual. (Pssst...wrinkles is one of our vocabulary words. The other day I asked the kiddos to give me a full sentence using that word...and they all looked at me! As if! Good thing I'm a pretty good sport concerning the humor streak within young ones! Actually, come to think of it, it matches my own.) Hey...we had a fire drill this morning and this grade was PERFECT! They set the example for some of our older grades. Not kidding.
Please Note: the Spelling paper sent along today was only a review paper. We will review our words constantly through our writing samples and learning games.
Additional Please Note: Ask your kiddos about the game "Compression." I use this game as a means to determine the number sense of my students. Happily they were able to take over in small groups of three and continue the game while I ran off down the school hallway in wild abandonment. Not to worry if they can't explain...I'll make sure we play a game tomorrow night. Remind me! I love your children for, believe it or not, they are keeping me YOUNG! (No wrinkles...)
Happy evening...Mrs. D. :-)
