I started the week out in one of my favorite places... CHICAGO! Got to see the Chicago marathon (AND Sean Astin was running - Go Goonies!!!)
|View from my sister's apartment!|
|Run Forest, Run!|
But even BETTER than the marathon?!
Seeing my two beautiful nieces!!!
|This girl is ALWAYS smiling!|
|Hard to catch this one standing still!|
We got a Donor's Choose project funded, wahoo! The materials came in - the perfect kid-sized headphones for my lil firsties. No more whining about not being able to hear / the headphones are too big / the wires are tangled!
Just the sweet sound of silence as they submerge themselves in technology.
|Math Bingo App|
|Practicing our "counting on" strategy!|
We are knee-deep in Daily 5 and reading groups and I am LOVING it! This is my sixth year using Daily 5 and I can't imagine how I ever taught without it! My kids are so engaged in their activities and they absolutely love making their own choices.

I started reading this fabulous book on the plane this weekend, and I can't seem to put it down! I highly recommend it. She has some great management tips and a TON of mini-lessons with mentor texts. I am DETERMINED to become a better writing workshop teacher this year!!!
Changing my bulletin board was WELL over-due... so I gave it a fall overhaul! I absolutely love this craftivity from Miss Kindergarten. Her crafts are so adorable!
That's what we've been up to lately... and hoping I can get back into a better blogging routine!
