What a week!! It has been fun but tiring! Here it is with my Five for Friday hosted by Doodle Bugs Teaching!
1. Though I can't say that Kindergarten is my favorite group to work with, I am amazed at their progress so far this year! We have been working on poems to gain concept of word, and this week, some of them have it! I am shocked! I had them find the word on the card in their poems and then try to figure out the word. They did it! They tracked right to the word that was on the card. Usually by this time in the year, we are struggling to even track the ABC's!! Here is the success I have seen!
Polka Dot Lesson Plans! It was great learning with someone else from my own state!! And she is super nice with some great ideas to share!
4. And, then for some super fun! I met two wonderful Virginia bloggers at Cheesecake Factory for dinner!
Melissa from Don't Let the Teacher Stay Up Late and I have become friends through our blogs and share a lot of the same life experiences. Nikki from Teaching in Progress was super fun to talk with. If I wouldn't have had a two and a half our drive home, I think I would have stayed all night and talked! About 1:30 today, I started to feel that lack of sleep!
5. And tonight is The Mother/Son Amazing Race at my son's school! It is always so much fun, even if we don't win! Synergizing with so many other students and moms is always so much fun! I can't believe that next year will be our last year to run it!
Head on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching for today's Five for Friday!
