Thank you Lord…Friday!
Still have 4.5 days…
plus workdays-I am already dreaming about organizing my closet…my life is sad
today was Ice Cream Day
to be honest, until 9:30 it was 2 kids cleaning the closet floor, 5 kids plus me fidgeting with this dang dinosaur model they started on TUESDAY!, and the rest of the kids organizing the classroom library and Clorox wiping ev.ry.thing
before lunch we surveyed to find out the favorite ice cream flavor in second grade. NO, I mean no one voted for Neapolitan but me and a few others who want to be me. Let me tell you, I was excited cause I was gonna get to take the whole dang tub home for the weekend…and guess what they all wanted when it was time to eat…my Neapolitan!
After gathering the data, we pooled it all together and I made a tally chart, they colored scoops for a pictograph, and 2 of them made the cone for our hallway display. If you look at the cone you can tell 8 year olds made it. This is one of the ways I am learning to let go…it hurts though
After lunch we began fractions. I like to use voices for teaching the vocab…num.er.a.tor!! in your best superhero voice with a Superman pose. And denominator in your best thing crawling around in Hades voice. Hey, it works. Then we usd Amy’s Make a Fraction Sundae activity. They are beginning to ask about this mysterious Mrs. Lemons…
they are pretty cute, but sometimes I wonder what kind of scream bowls they eat from. I mean, some scoops are simply floating in mid-air.
Then after Lab we made our sundaes. They are not scared of the prospect of puking. Gah…ughhh. I couldn’t believe what they were eating.
Overall good day, I wish I had time to use Hope’s ice cream unit. Not sure I can devote that much time to it, but maybe next year. I am enjoyed following the pictures!
and fyi…clearance at Michaels $8.99!
