This week has been pretty intense... I haven't blogged all week. The students had their Fractured Fairy Tale projects due Tuesday. I had 5 turn them in late and 12 decide to not turn them in at all. It is absolutely frustrating... They didn't seem to mind that it counted as a test grade in Reading and English. Most of the students were more affected with getting written up for having more than 1 homework miss. My hand hurts from filling out disciplines.
Anyways... We started a unit on Chris Van Allsburg and inferencing this week. My kiddos are LOVING it. I bought the unit here. I have already sent praises to the creator ( Runde's Room ). She is FABULOUS!! We added a little flair to one of the writing activities with watercolors.... FUN! I can't wait to continue with the unit next week. :)
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! (I am just hoping to keep myself from coming up to the school Sunday...)
