I'll righty bloggy friends, we are fully back in the swing of things. We were able to accomplish A LOT today! I have been blog stocking Abby at Inspired Apple. She always has great ideas and it seems like we are on the same schedule. Every time I check her blog she is doing the same thing we are...how convient!
First we have been working on contractions. Today we did an activity that Abby posted about, contraction friends and made a contraction chart. (I think she called them people?) Here is how they turned out:

Also this week we talked about our 2012 school goals and our "one little word." Holly over at Crisscross Applesauce made some cute worksheets that go along with both of these. My kids really enjoyed making their goals. Who knew they would be so honest!

Last but not least we compared and contrasted two different items in our story this week. We just used a simple Venn Diagram. I think sometimes the oldies are the besties. I let the kids color them and then I am able to put them up in our reading area.
So... I think the 4 miles yesterday caught up with me just now. My legs are finally sore. I guess that is a good thing. I have heard a great new excuse today. I had a student that was being disrespectful and I asked him why he was being disrespectful. His response was because of video games! I was like VIDEO GAMES!! I couldn't believe that came out of this mouth. I didn't know if I was totally shocked or I was angry!!??!!??
*****I will post the winner of my giveaway in the morning!!***************
