Driving home today, I was just so overwhelmed with all of the things I have to do before 9:00 am tomorrow morning (entering grades, reorganizing guided reading groups, entering RTI data, getting organized for my newly started reading conferences, etc.)...not to mention I found out at 1:30 today that I have to go to a PD all day Thursday...and I was left thinking, "how can I fit in what I was planning to do in 5 days into 4 days?" Well, the answer probably is, it's impossible, but I'm going to try. I just couldn't help but think, "is anything I am doing working? Are my kids learning?" Gosh, I hope so!
When I got home, I got an email from Stephanie McCumbee, with her 100th Day packet attached. She gave it away to the first 2 comments on her post about it yesterday, and I was the third. How amazing of her to be so generous to email it to me too! I am thrilled...it made my day :)
On to gummy worms!
Last week we did this really fun experiment with physical change - I got the idea from Doris at Third Grade Thinkers (totally obsessed, if you can't tell). Basically, you leave a gummy worm (or bear) in water overnight and observe the changes. OMG, the changes are CRAZY! Even I was amazed! Here are some pics:
We are finally finished with matter, and on to African American history! Yay! Hopefully I'll be back this weeks with some pics to share :)
