Five for Friday, June 7th

Fly By Like a Butterfly For a Fabulous Friday!

We have had a tremendously busy week.  Here are five happy highlights.

1.  On Thursday, we had field day.  The weather was perfect - sunny and in the 70's.  The gym teacher, Mrs. Hale, did an excellent job setting up the 18 activities which were manned by excellent volunteers.  In addition to the 18 stations, the kids got two slushes and enjoyed the music provided by a Goodyear parent, Mr. Wilson.  Here is a picture of the hockey center in the gym:






2.  In computer lab, the kids are busy finishing their portrait poems.  I am happy to share one of the finished products with you.






In addition, here is the link to this activity, if you would like to check it out yourself.

3.  On the rug, the kids are sharing their expert books.  As a class, we made a list of expert topics.  After that, the kids wrote their own books complete with a table of contents, three chapters, pictures and a conclusion.  The books came out tremendously well.  I am going to write an entire post about this activity later, along with the link, if you would like to buy it for yourself as I purchased this activity on Teachers Pay Teachers.

4.  Additionally, the kids finished their Science ABC Vocabulary books, and those came out great - I'll post more pictures of those later as well.  Again, here's the link if you missed it last week:

5.  Today was Retro Day.  The kids and teachers could dress like people from the 90's, 80's, 70's or 60's.  The kids had a lot of fun with their clothing.  There was even a parade around the school so that everyone could see the different outfits.  I wore a pair of overalls that were actually from the 90's.  Gee, it doesn't seem that long ago, and now it's considered "retro."  Does this mean that I'm getting as old as some of my clothes?  Maybe I need to go to Marshall's and get some updated outfits - now there's a great idea - shopping! 

Happy Weekend!  Remember to eat some delicious watermelon!  One of my favorite new combinations is:  arugula, watermelon and feta salad topped with balsamic vinagrette - delicious and healthy!
