A quick peek at last week!

Last week was just a great week! So why not blog about it?!

This will be quick...really needed to start dinner 20 minutes ago.... oh well :)

A few days a week, our class does Exit Slips before we dismiss. I started this 6 weeks into the school year and I really have enjoyed it. Such a great way to see what my individual kiddos think about certain questions I ask, like "What is 1 thing you learned today?" or "What will you tell your parents tonight about your day?" ETC

Well, this one below is, by far, my favorite from the week.

Doesn't that just make you smile?! Coming from an already awesome kid!

It has 12 different question prompts with response pages. 

The exit tickets fit in those library pockets. I made this out of poster board and cute border. Easy to make and so fun!

On Friday, our 2nd graders went to our district's aquatic center for a preview of their Swim & Safety program coming up in February! Our school was chosen to help make the marketing video for the swim program so we went to star in the video! It was such a fun time!

Here are a few pics!

We get to go back for 4 days in February and the kids can't wait!

How was your week??

Introducing a New Me {A Poem for the New Year}

Just sharing a cute poem to use with your students when you return to school. For me, it's MONDAY!! It has been a wonderful break but, man, it went by way too fast.

I use this poem to introduce New Year's Resolutions to spark conversation before we write down our goals for the year. We keep a poetry folder in my class and we add this to our folder.  I had planned to whip up a printable activity to go with the poem but I am running out of time. Maybe next year. ;)

To get the poem FREE, you can find it HERE!

Also available in printer-friendly black & white. :)

Enjoy and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
