My kids are independent enough to work on projects. And they LOVE it.
They turned out really cute!
I went to Target and picked up three bags of beans. One being black beans. I'm usually a lima bean kind of girl.
Do you see that black bean?! Grew right through the bag!
Needless to say, the black bean is the new lima bean.
Scholastic Book Club for dollar books! I'm reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume to my kids. It's the prerequisite to Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great. I loved this book as a kid.
Unfortunately, we're having some issues with that in class. For things that should be considered fun.
So, we are now using the word industrious.
"Are you being industrious?"
Which reminds me, have you shown your class these adorable Class Dojo videos? This one is my absolute favorite!
It's about a little monster that is giving up on something new to her.
She finds out that she's in "the dip," which is where we all get stuck when we're learning something new.
This is the conversation I heard this week:
Girl: This is hard!
Boy: It's OK, you're just in the dip.
Not a long conversation, but cuter than anything I've ever heard!
I love hearing what other teachers are reading, so I thought I'd share some of the books I love.
Thanks for stopping by. Head on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to link up or to read some more.
