We had our last conferences for the year on Wednesday. I had 15 conferences practically back to back so it was a very long day. We’re very lucky that our school gives us a day off to do conferences so we’re not having to squeeze them in before and after school…but it was still a long day!
We continued working on fractions this week. Yesterday we played Fraction Bingo. The prizes were stickers and notepads from Mrs. Johnson’s closet lol. I’m trying to do a little spring cleaning and figure I could share my items with them!
Speaking of spring cleaning from #2 – I have a problem…I am a hoarder of teaching supplies. Like it’s bad. I’ve been at my current school for three years and opened boxes that I had no idea what was in them. Things I haven’t touched, used, or needed for three years – so it’s been a week of purging…
The students finished up their Think Like a Disciplinarian presentations this week. I know I mentioned them last week, but I have to brag on my kids again. They did such an amazing job! Each presentation was unique and each child presented their material in a different way, which made it fun as an audience. My friend in the picture above learned about being a magician. He even did an awesome card trick when he was finished!
So I’m sure everyone is feeling the end of the school year crazy. This week I instituted quiet classical/soft music pack-up. They had been especially crazy the day I started this, so we listened to some Piano Guys tunes while packing up and the room became more peaceful and zen. I highly recommend trying it!
Hope everyone has a great 3 day weekend!
