SOL#23 - March 23rd
Today is day 23 of the Slice of Life March, the writing challenge sponsored and run by Stacey and Ruth of "Two Writing Teachers".
The weekend has arrived! But it will be busy, just as this week has.
Friday was my student teacher's last day with us. She has been practice teaching here for 4 weeks. I am really sorry to see her go, as were the children.
She will be an asset to the profession - she had such a wonderful rapport with the children and developed several excellent units. It was Lisa who suggested robots to end the 3D geometry unit.
She is hoping to teach in Italy and then England for a year.
Today was also our marble party - a party the children earn by filling a jar with marbles by performing cohesively as a group. It was great that it worked out for Lisa's last day!
The children planned their party and wanted food (of course), pjs and stuffies and electronics.
A fun time was had by all.
I even learned a new game - if I had a smartphone I might become addicted: 4Pics and a word. I love word games - this would be on a lot!
My husband and I then had supper out at Swiss Chalet (a chicken place we love), as a gift from Lisa. What a lovely start to the weekend.
