Wow! What a busy week! I am excited to share what has been happening this week with you. I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday so that I can keep everything organized. Here are some of the highlights of my week.
On the weekend we had our annual Vancouver Island Ukulele Workshop. It was very busy, but all went well. We had about 30 people attending that ranged from new players to advanced. Some were university students, and some were seniors. Several teachers also attended. The excitement was evident throughout the day and people had a great time singing and playing.
Heritage Project Celebration
Monday we shared our heritage projects with families and friends. This was a big project for my little grade 2 and 3 students, but they did an amazing job. Check out the photos below to see samples of what they created. More importantly, they were able to talk about their countries and how they were important in their lives. It was awesome to see their beaming faces as the parents talked to them.
In December we had a big challenge for reading. We had to create a chain that went from one end of the school to the other end in order to cheer up Grumpy Santa. Each link of the chain was 20-30 minutes of reading. As a celebration for completing the challenge, the whole school went skating today. Half of the school went in the morning, and the other half went in the afternoon.
I have been busy creating more Dolch word games using winter themes. Here is my latest one. I just finished it last night. My kids have fun using it to play WORDS today. Each set is a different sport theme so it is easy to identify when using only some sets. Click here to find out more about the product. The WORDS cards are part of my limited time free product for this weekend's Facebook Free-For-All hop.(See #5 for more details.)
Finally, I have been working with an amazing group of teachers for the past couple of weeks preparing for a Facebook Free-For-All blog hop that is beginning at midnight tonight.
