Well, today was NOT one of them. Today I felt so congested and icky I felt like I was teaching underwater. BUT... we did get a lot done. We are working on my Stone Soup Unit and my students are LOVING every second of it. Tomorrow we are making soup and I think they might explode from the excitement - which is kind of funny, because soup is sort of the opposite of exciting, but when you are in second grade, everything has the potential for excitement, which is why I love it. Here are some pictures of what we have been working on. You can pick up my Stone Soup unit here - http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Stone-Soup-A-Folktale-Literature-Study
My class really is the sweetest group of kiddos ever. We received bean bag chairs from a Donors Choose grant this week and it was like Christmas had come early. They were so excited! They were also super excited when I had to run around, throwing them in the air while chasing a scorpion that was running underneath them this morning. - LOL! But it all comes with the territory... right?
When I got home this bit of awesomeness was waiting for me! I ordered this from an incredibly talented (and funny) former classmate of mine. She is a high school art teacher and a clay artist! I LOVE it so much! If you would like one you need to check out her facebook page right here... https://www.facebook.com/pages/aj-clay/247148188628716?ref=ts&fref=ts .
Happy, Happy Friday Friends!
