It's Friday...time for a 3 day weekend since I'm still in school. I have lots of house chores to get done! Linking up with Amanda and Kacey to look back at my week! Busy week at home and school! This will be quick because I'm off to play my first kickball game! My husband and I are on a co-ed team-hopefully I'll be back for my own linky tomorrow (Spark Student Motivation Saturdays) if I'm not in the hospital! haha
My daughter got her recital costume! She wanted to "try" it on to make sure it fits-seriously, how cute is that costume?
Had dinner with my former students from 12 years ago...2 of them have babies! These girls (women) are still so special and dear to my heart! Yes, my shoes do match my shirt! :O)
Owl pellets! My students were a little reluctant at first...but then they really got into it! If you're not familiar with the website www.kidwings.com it's wonderful when you're dissecting owl pellets. There's lots of good information plus a virtual owl pellet dissection-very cool!
Our wonderful media specialist held Reading is Magic for all the students who earned 125 points in Reading Counts this year! It's a 6 hour event ending at 8:00 filled with fun activities. This picture is the rocket launch! Not trying to brag, but I'm sooooo proud of my students, so I'm going to share: all 25 of my students earned Reading is Magic!!!! My class is CRAZY about reading!
Here's my princess again with one of her besties with their soccer trophies! Can you tell they're divas??!! :O) They're cute and aggressive!
Hope to see you tomorrow for my linky party! How do you keep or get your students excited or motivated? Or, more importantly, how are you staying motivated? Link up any idea that makes you or your students smile!
