I'm linking with Ruth Ayres, and her weekly link up. Read More about that here. And then join in!
Dear Celebrate Friends! I can't wait to see what you've been up to! That part will come later, as soon I'm going to be running 2 beautiful boys to basketball all day. I'm adjusting to having to think about 2 of them with this schedule. It's definitely messed with my Saturday groove! :) And it's not even that intense...but there is much to celebrate! Let's go!
1. Let's Celebrate Some Food! Here's a link for spaghetti and meatball subs. We broiled them. (No George Foreman since 2001.) Anytime the family can agree it's good; we celebrate that!
2. Our Mock Caldecott work. This week one of the books we read was Louise Loves Art.
The students are so amazing at predicting and celebrating great stories! We've read several for our Mock Caldecott work; but I loved it when One Little Friend leaned over and said, "This one is my favorite so far."
3. My Math Block. I blogged about the choice time in December as I was processing a few things. As I continue to work on this, some more pieces are coming together. (More on that later.) Math is becoming almost as cool as Literacy in my classroom. There is freedom to work and explore math concepts, and I think it's working!
4. Kindergarten Basketball and their coaches. I mean, last night at practice, I was watching how gentle the coaches were. "Okay Buddy, don't forget to dribble!" "You can't hit your buddy to get the ball." "Okay Buddy, but you have to dribble." We Celebrate the people who give their time on a Friday night after a long week of work to mentor these little Kindergarten Friends.
I'll be checking in again later to see your links! Have a great day!
