1. Thinking Maps
I recently introduced compare/contrast maps and y'all? These are their favorites! All throughout that week, they made them daily. And they did so good with them! We compared and contrasted books by the same author and I'll share more later but just know that I am firmly and comfortably in the Thinking Map camp and do not see a change to that anytime soon!!
2. Yummiest Chocolate Ever!
Just do yourself a favor and go buy some. You won't be sorry. Trust me!
3. Family Dinner
Last Friday, we had a family dinner and it was much needed because I hadn't seen my grandpa or aunt and uncle in a long time! It was so fun to catch up and spend some time with them!
4. Last Saturday
We kept Ryan Grace alllll day, it was raining alllllll day and college football was on allllllll day. So, yeah. It was pretty awesome.
I'm not sure that I've mentioned it here, but I collect milkglass. When my grandma was still alive, she gave me a few pieces. Then, in the last two years, I've bought a lot of pieces at flea markets and thrift stores. I have a $10 rule. I don't buy any piece that is more than $10 because for me, it's just fun to search, ya know? The last few months, my grandpa has been giving me the last pieces of my grandma's collection. So, needless to say, I'm ecstatic to have these pieces because they belonged to her! I think I'm about out of cabinet space, though! Might need a bigger hutch, ha!
6. Text Features
This week, we learned about nonfiction text features. I made this chart an we used it all week as we read articles incorporating the features. Then, the kids made posters about a topic of their choice that included text features. They turned out great! I will blog a more detailed post soon!!
7. The Baby
