First on my list this week is that we had our first parental involvement event of the year. It was our annual NFL event. NFL=Night of Family Literacy. We do it each year, and it is the biggest hit with our families. We start with Tailgating food and fun and end with entertainment. This year, we had a storyteller come and do campfire tales. He was perfect for our event since his specialty was Appalachian Stories and Songs.
Of ours, we also finished up the end of the first quarter. Our Accelerated Reader goals were due from the children along with grades, comments, and on top of that, my Professional Growth plan. It meant a long week of record keeping and such, BUT...it all got done. I'm so proud of my kids' hard work too. During the week, we worked on fluency with this freebie from my store, so my students asked me to bring in pie for them if they all made their goals. Well, I guess I get to do some baking. Good thing I found a produce stand along the way home today that had fresh apples, Yum!
Well, I could not wait for Friday to come this week because I got to spend the weekend away with this guy. We had a blast this weekend. We've been married 24 years, and it's been ten since we've been away overnight from our kids. We were extremely overdue!
I will end with pictures from the weekend. Virginia is just gorgeous this time of year.
And now for my Sunday Scoop with The Teaching Trio...
Guess it's time to get busy on this list. Have a great week readers, and be sure to download the freebie I added. The kids had a great time with it this week. You can use it during the coming weeks as Thanksgiving approaches.
