Peek of a Hopefully Five Day Week!


It's Sunday night, and that means that it's time to link-up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings for A Peek at My Week!







This week we'll be focusing on Chinese New Year.  In Reading, we'll be using the book:



I love this book because it tells about Sam's Chinese New Year lucky money and how he finally spends it - to help a homeless man.  It's just an all-around heartwarming story.


In Science, we'll be starting to learn about weather.  If you need a Powerpoint about weather, I have posted mine to TPT, and you can get it here:

I decided to do weather now because our weather has been somewhat unpredictable.  Yesterday was supposed to be a warmer day, but the wind made it feel just as cold as it always seems to be lately - although it is above zero which is much better than some other places like Wisconsin (where Mrs. Laffin lives).  Any way, we'll be tracking the weather soon so I'm hoping the weather will be different as in it might be a little warmer.


Head on over to this blog to check out:

This blogger is only 24 years old, and she has some great products in her TPT store.  I am pretty impressed!

In exciting personal news, I bought a new extra capacity Whirlpool washer and dryer yesterday.  The gas dryer in my house is about 20 years old, and it started screeching last week while my 10+ year old front loader has a crack inside the door.  It was time to make my move.  I'm especially excited because I'm supposed to wash my comforter monthly due to my dust mite allergy.  However, I need to go to the laundromat to wash my comforter so it doesn't get washed nearly as much as needed.  My new washing machine can wash a king sized comforter.  Now I will have no excuses.  Plus, I love how the front doors are glass so you can see your laundry (not that I'll be watching, but it looks good).

Have a happy and healthy week!

  1. This weather is making me absolutely CRAZY that there's no way I could study it in science right now. (We did end up having a snow day today, and probably Tuesday too. :(.

    Congrats on your new washer and dryer! Going to the laundromat is no fun so I'm glad that you were able to get something to prevent this.

    Have a great week!
