No TPT store for me! But...

I still am enjoying all the looks and dreams of the sale.

Last week was our state mandated testing. Last week my word wall went from this covered and bare to

I have this polka dot theme so when I found these Frye words/Dolch words on TPT I had to snap them up. 

Erica made these and you can find them here.

Last week we finished up our study of wild animals. We finished and published our stories of "That Stinks". 
Our school board is coming to visit this week so I have those on display in the hallway along with these skunk non-fiction writings.

This week we have our end of the year field trip on Monday. We will be attending The Barter Theater in Abingdon, Virginia to see a play and then play in the park. Thursday we have a half day set for our Field Day and Friday the kids have a day off for staff development. I also will be at a meeting on Thursday morning. This means only two days to get started on Charlotte's Web/Farm Unit. I bought Abby's unit and will be using lots of her activities because... the mayor, the director of schools, and the school board is coming to visit my class while we do small groups. No pressure, right????Well, maybe just a little.

We are synthesizing a bit during reader's workshop and tying in a little elements of Fairy Tales.

Have a great Teacher's Appreciation Week.
