Happy Birthday to ME! :)

Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend so far! Today is actually my birthday...I hit the big 2-3! I spent Friday night and most of today in Raleigh with my boyfriend, and we had an awesome time as usual! Over the course of our visit, we ate at Piebird, saw the Evil Dead, went to the flea market, ate at the Yard House (Google FAVORITE restaurant), and rode around on the motorcycle after getting home...lots of fun!

A funny birthday story from yesterday...while I was eating lunch, one of my girls came up to me and informed me that 22 years from Saturday, I will be 45. What? At least she WAS applying math in a real-world situation! :)

I'm done talking about are are couple of things my sprouts worked on at the end of the week!

Our "creative" small group activity for point of view...I wrote all over my kidney table to make a giant sort, and then the sprouts categorized some passages based on their point of views. It was a great activity, but it further proves the point that I am essentially a graffiti artist in my classroom. ;)

We created a simple four-flap foldable to keep track of some of Earth's landforms! We are going to start talking about different bodies of water this upcoming week. I am excited for more opportunities to compare and contrast...I am clearly trying to reinforce that reading objective as much as humanly possible! Speaking of comparing and contrasting, one of my little sprouts came up to me on Thursday and informed me that he was comparing and contrasting two texts by the same author! Cool, right? I looked over at his desk and saw he had two different Big Nate books out...I then watched him read one page of one, and then one page from the other. It cracked me up! At least he was trying to demonstrate mastery of one of our objectives, right? :)

I hope you have a happy, relaxing Sunday tomorrow! :)
