The kids spend the entire day outside.
Most of the day was spent in the pool. However, they also spent lots of time fishing and enjoyed a huge water balloon fight.
At the end of the day, someone got the idea to have the kids dive for pennies at the bottom of the pool. Somehow, the "pennies" turned into a ton quarters, dimes and nickles.
As we started laughing about how expensive this game was getting, my cousin started throwing in dollar bills. This was a huge hit with the big kids!
At one point he hurled a credit card into the pool too. It was so funny. All around, a perfect day.
Monday was the first day back to school. I have made lots of progress in my room... but you will have to trust me until next week since this is the only photo I took of my classroom all week.
I saw this on Facebook last night and couldn't stop laughing. SO funny!
(Thanks for the laugh Teaching in Progress!)
We have actually had more time in our classrooms this year than any other year. It has been wonderful... but I think most teachers can relate to this feeling at one time or another ;).
Last night a huge group of teachers from school got together to go see the movie Bad Moms.
I think there were 23 teachers that went. We figured out that we had teachers from every grade level and every team. It was SO MUCH FUN. The movie was hilarious. There is some off color language but it is hilarious! We have never had such a big group get together outside of school before and it was awesome! We are hoping to make it a monthly thing this year.
Anyway, I wound up writing two Donors Choose grants for my classroom!
Kindergarten Kids- Wiggling Our Way to Healthy Learning and
Tiny Teachers: Playing and Learning Our Way to Healthy Habits, which only needs $97 more to be fully funded!!
All donations made to my projects before August 9 will be matched by Donors Choose when the code LIFTOFF is used... in case you know anyone who might be interested in donating. :)
Finally, I am putting my #1 seller on sale this weekend!
It includes 40 different character traits! So, you can focus on a different trait each week... or you can just pick and choose the traits that your school focuses on.
There are 2 different posters, a writing prompt, and "caught being good" slips included for each of the 40 character traits.
You can grab this on sale through Monday HERE.
Have a fabulous weekend!!
