I am so glad this week is over. It was a nightmare! First of all, we had our district testing begin. This threw off our schedule but that was okay. I can deal with it, The part I couldn't deal with was the evacuation from the building on Thursday due to a water main break. Four hours stuck in a gym with a school of students in our sister school was torture. We still had tutoring after school in that building for an hour and a half. I thought the day would never end!
With that in mind, I was able to have 11 students join Fun Friday. I was actually surprised at how many were able to attend. This week our theme was winter. I meant to start out the festivities with a snowball fight found here but totally forgot with all the excitement of the week (since I was going to make something that I did not have to pay for). Instead we made the Help, I'm Trapped in a Snow Globe craft/writing activity found here. My students have discovered a love of glitter. This is all it takes to make them happy. I even wanted to make "snow" with baking soda and shaving cream but forgot the shaving cream at home. I can't get over how unorganized I was. Those that finished their snow globes project played some games I got of off Donors Choose. They were super happy!
Speaking of Donors Choose, I got my project funded! Between that and my best friend getting us New Kids on the Block tickets (proud of the fact that I still go to their concert!), there were some great things that happened this week,
