Don't you love it when your principal walks in and you are doing something that she might question the "Instructional value" of??? We don't have specials on Thursdays and usually I try to do something hands on or a instructional video or something in the afternoons because we haven't had a break all day. Today, since we're learning about plants, I decided to make "dirt cups" with the kids. You know, the pudding and crushed cookies with a gummy worm! Well, this would be the day that the principal would walk in (and with a parent too- but not one of my parents). Our principal is on maternity leave so it was our substitute principal who I haven't had much interaction with...I am not sure what she thought as my kiddos are all reading while I am mixing up the pudding for the dirt. They stayed for what seemed like forever! After I pulled the kiddos back to the carpet and we reviewed how soil is one of the things plants need- they left... It was so frustrating because I have no idea why they were there and no idea what they thought of the whole thing... UUUGH!
