Last Weekend of October Updates & More!

It's hard to believe that we're on the doorstep of Halloween and November.  Time sure flies during the school year.  Today I'm linking up with Jan from Laughter and Consistency for Saturday Sum Up;  

and the Blended Blog for Friday Favorites

and Erika, Narci, and Andrea for Friday Favorites:

The Voice ~ A Poem by Shel Silverstein

I LOVE this poem and used it in Monday's Morning Message:

More Monday Excitement!

The kids had so much fun planting their lima, pinto and grass seeds.  I gave them a cup of dirt, and they were off and planting.  When we can into school last Monday, the plant were actually thriving!

New Chromebooks Arrive!

The kids were extremely excited to use our new Chromebooks.  For the first 30 minutes, they did either Lexia or Freckle (formerly Front Row):

In addition, we started making some Powerpoints using Google slides.  I LOVE having new technology as well as having the computer lab come to us!

Life Cycle Learning Continues

I really love when I can incorporate what we're learning in class into our Morning Messages.  Since we're still studying life cycles, we learned about the spider life cycle:

My Son, Andrew, and his Fiancee, Angelika, are front page news!

That's Andrew's pumpkin in the top row on the far left.  I think it's a Nintendo character.

Last Tuesday, we had severe thunder and lightning, and a church in my town got struck by lightning and burned to the ground.  You can read more here. 

Have a wonderful week and a fun Halloween!

  1. Your son's pumpkin is impressive! Isn't it great to have Chromebooks to use? Our school got 1:1 Chromebooks for the 3rd graders last year, and it's been so great to have them to use whenever we need them. My kids like Lexia, too. And we create Question and Answer books in Google Slides. I'd love to see more about your life cycle activities! That's a unit I don't feel totally comfortable teaching. Thanks for linking up!
