IT'S OVER! WE MADE IT!
We took the last of our tests this morning. We had the math problem solving section and the science/ social studies section this morning. Thank goodness we were able to test in the morning instead of the afternoon. We needed our brains to be fresh and ready!
After testing we combined with Mr. Russell's class and watched How It's Made while Mr. Russell tested one of his students that needed a make-up. (have I mentioned how our students are addicted to learning how things are made? It's science and mechanics in action!)
After lunch we took an extended recess (not having recess all week, I felt we deserved it) and went back to class. I only had one student that required a make-up test. Yea!
We celebrated Fun Friday with a movie and ice cream. I neglected to get a picture of my kids eating because the lights were off for the movie. But I got a picture of the remains!
Ive cream with chocolate syrup, sprinkles and marshmellows! Basically, I sugared up the kids and sent them home. :)
Next week I'll be gone Monday- Wednesday. I'm going to the International Reading Association Convention in Chicago! Mr. Evans in his infinite wisdom, decided to send Ms. Beckett, Ms. Hall, Ms. Toles and myself to the conference! I'm so excited! I promised my students that I would take pictures of everything.
I told my students that I expect them to behave for Ms. Hubbard, who we've has as a sub before. Next Friday is Field Day and those who can't behave, won't be participating.
