Wild and Crazy Week--and a Freebie!!!

Wow!!!  Short weeks are a killer!  This past week was one crazy week!  We were off of school on Monday, Tuesday my student teacher arrived, I was observed by my principal on Wednesday, I did lots of after school shopping with my daughter for homecoming, we had a homecoming pep rally and teacher/student basketball game on Friday, AND I got a new student!!!!

During all that craziness, we did do SOME work!!!! :)

Writing about our dreams for the future!

Proving that air takes up space--as part of our study on the states of matter!  I have journal pages that my students used throughout the unit, but I need to check on Print Candee's TOU regarding freebies.  I'll post them tomorrow if I can.

Shopping Scoot!  My kiddos L-O-V-E scoot!!!!  I love that I can see who "Gets" it while they think they are just having fun!  

I played the Money, Money, Money, Money song when we scooted!  My teaching partner opened our adjoining door after about 5 times of hearing the music to see what in the world we were doing!!!  

Here is the song: sweet daughter was selected to be on the Homecoming Court this year.  I was too lazy to lug my big camera, and used my husbands little camera----and got cruddy pictures!!!  Lesson learned!

And....if you made it through all of's a freebie!

Well, I guess I better...
1.  Do my lesson plans
2.  Grade papers
3. Laminate, laminate, laminate
4. Go stir the red beans that are probably stuck to the bottom of the pot!!

Thanks for the great freebie. We are doing money right now. Where did shopping scoot come from? I need it.
