39 School Days Left

So, the countdown has begun... maybe not with the kinders yet, but I am definitely counting the days.  It's hard to believe that the school year only has 39 days left.  Wow!  There's so much to do and so very little time, but yet these days will just drag and drag.  We have no days off left AND we're basically on lock-down all day during testing week with no specials and no recess!  So, we have to make it standards-packed and fun all at the same time. 
We've been enjoying our fairy tale unit.  Each week we read a different fairy tale.  I find different versions of it to read each day and we compare and contrast as well as focus on beginning, middle, end and characters, setting, problem and solution. 
We just finished our plant mini-unit and now we're focusing on magnets and motion.  I have some fun activities planned for that so hopefully I can share some pictures of that in action.
Well, I am off to school year this morning.  I have to change centers and make sure everything is ready for a unscheduled observation from my principal sometime this week! Gotta love our new evaluation system!!!
Happy Monday!


  1. We have about the same amount of days left and no more days off until the end. Good luck with your observation!
