Oh What a Day.
That is what I'm singing today.
And I am singing it good, not bad.
Today I took the plunge. Math work stations.
We already knew how to play the games. So what we added was independent/partner time to play/practice.
It's not that I'm a slow learner (I've known about stations/centers for years), but I am slow at figuring out "how" to do them so that I don't go crazy. Today worked.
This wonderful group worked for 15 minutes and they were using a whisper voice, so that they did not disturb the kids around them. Talk about a happy teacher!!
And as an elementary teacher, I have to teach apples in September, right??
After a little compare and contrast lesson, we "busted out the seeds" as one funny kid said. (Really, a sharp knife did the trick.)
And now woking on a science experiment to learn if seeds will grow without sun and soil.
The idea for the experiment came from here.
For the next three days we will be observing changes in the seeds.
Aaaaaaannnnddddd--it's a girl!!
We are getting a heifer calf this week. She is coming from our farm family (Mr. Williams) and will arrive soon. Mrs. Jones decided that we should spruce up her new pen a bit...
Once again, she did the hard work, while I monitored the students. I did loan her my chore boots (why doesn't she have her own??).
Pictures of our calf will come soon.
