I don't know about you, but I don't feel like we're close to the last day AT ALL! I feel like the kids are crazy and I'm irrational as if it were the last day, but our actual last day isn't until mid-June. Doesn't that sound like an eternity from now??
So, I've been working hard at being a teacher, acting like I haven't mentally checked out and pretending like the students still care. What better way to do that than with a little science fun with BUGS!?
Did someone say, bug vacuum? No?
Well, I did! The kids go crazy for it and love sucking up ants.
(No insects were harmed during this process.)
Then we were able to expand our bug jargon by looking at bug heads, thoraxes and abdomens! So cool!
|Clearly this guy wasn't listening when I said that ants have THREE body parts. Sheesh. . . :)|
Could it be any cuter?
And our alphabet countdown wouldn't be complete without a silly hat!
Now for the good stuff!
I showed up to school yesterday, to find this. . . in my purse. How did she do that? I turned my back for a moment and her quiet, little, dainty, quiet-as-a-mouse self snuck this in. . .
Awwww! I couldn't ask for a better blogger bestie, real-life friend and coworker! I blocked out the TPT code she gave me for a present- ha! Thank you, Kimberly Ann!
And, as promised I found some dude to pick 5 random numbers from yesterday's (awesome) comments and here are the winners!
Congrats and check your inboxes!
