Monday...ONLY Monday?

     Gosh, today felt like it lasted 15 hours! Do you ever have days like that? We are in the midst of assessing our students for the 3rd 9 weeks. It takes so long to do assessments one on one. This time we also have to do a Running Record on the students. To be on grade level, they have to be reading on a level A or B; at the end of the year they have to read at least a level C. What does your county require from your students? 

     We had a great day today..............we decided as a grade level to celebrate St. Patrick's Day today since we had a half day on Thursday and a workday on Friday. Man, the kids were so excited to find the gold nuggets the leprechaun left for them! I did take pictures of the leprechaun traps on Friday.  I also took a picture of the small shoe and hat the leprechaun tends to get caught in two different traps! They love this. He left a note for us to please find his shoe and hat and if we leave them for him, he will leave a surprise treat for us! Guess what he is going to leave? Well the magic powder of course! LOL Check out some of the traps below. I was so proud 20 out of 24 students made a trap! They were all great-of course you always have those that go above and beyond-I love the simple ones just as much and always make a big deal out of all of them! Enjoy the pictures and I'll try to post more pictures on Wednesday from the fun things we did!

Oh and I have to tell you about Buggy for Second Grade's giveaway....she is going to give away 5 math center games. You leave a comment about what inspires you as a teacher. I loved reading all of the different comments people have left so far. But hurry, it ends Thursday!

Have a great Monday-off to watch The Voice! I love this show; not too bad that I love, love, love one of the judges on there too-such a cute country guy! Any guesses?

    Our district says kids have to be at a C at the end of K as well.
