Five for Friday--April 24th

This has been a long week. It was one of those weeks where you think it's later in the week than it really is. I was convinced Wednesday was Thursday. Monday we were observed by county people. Tuesday observed by teachers. Wednesday was the great Earth Day activity day. I'm beat! 
We didn't just celebrate Earth Day. Oh, no! We celebrated Earth WEEK!
Reading, posters, planting flowers, bird feeders, and crafts. 
Too much fun = very tired teacher.

I posted my first Art in 30 post where I'll show how I incorporate art into my classroom. Each activity takes 30 minutes or less.

Be Responsible! I borrowed this idea from Kasey at Doodle Bugs Teaching. You all know that you've said one, or all, of the statements below ten trillion times this year alone. I am so tired! So, like Kasey, I made this board for students to show responsibility. When children are not showing responsibility, they have to turn their jar over. At the end of the week, the students with a name showing get a treat. I'm not yet sure if it'll make students more responsible, but at least I can reward those that are.

I posted 7 statements on the board. 
1. I write my name on my paper. 2. I do my work and I do my best. 3. I'm at school on time. 4. The floor around my desk is clean. 5. I keep my folders organized. 6. I do my homework. 7. I have a pencil.

I won! I won! I won two great products this week. They came at the perfect time. The garden unit is from Megan Baker at Mrs. Baker's Dozen and the ladybug unit is from Second Grade Stories.
