Happy Friday friends! I am SO glad the weekend is here! It has been a long, but great week! I am sure ready for some rest though. I am so excited to link up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for a little Five for Friday fun!
This week, we started learning about collective nouns. They sure are tricky! There’s no real formula…it’s all memorizing. I picked up this gem in a recent book order. The kiddos LOVE it and it’s full of great collective nouns!
Over winter break, I was grading some of my kiddos writing. Holy smokes! Their handwriting was SO hard to read I couldn’t believe it. It has just gotten SO sloppy! I had to do something about it! So, we started our handwriting books this week. Hopefully this cleans up their work and reinforces them taking their time when writing.
I have a very LARGE collection of books. Way more than any one person should have. But, every year when we start our folktales unit, I always hit up the library. I have spent a lot of time on Abebooks, ordering used books for this very unit. I have finally shrunk my library pile to this neat stack. It’s still a huge chunk, but it’s WAY better than it used to be!
We have had some beautiful weather in the PNW this week! I bribed my kiddos with some outside reading. They love to go out and read in the sunshine! It takes a special group to be bribed by reading. Another reason I LOVE this class!
Let me tell you…this warm weather is not common in the PNW this time of year! We got home at about 5:15 and it was still warm enough for the kiddos to go outside and play! I love it!
I hope you all have a wonderful and restful weekend:)
