- We FINALLY finished our first math unit! Tested them and most of them did great!
- Finished some art projects and stuck them on the bulletin board
- Spent sometime outside playing games for science. We will likely be ready for a test in Habitats and Communities in another couple of weeks! I don't plan on starting another unit until after Christmas so this means that they will have lots of time to complete an awesome final project!
- Tested the French students on their colours, seasons, and types of weather. They are a pretty smart group.
- Chugging away at The Outsiders. I'm starting to think we may be finished the novel sooner than I had anticipated. I'll need to come up with some awesome final projects for them to choose from.
- Blogs are in for the month! I have a ton of marking to do this weekend *groan*
- Fall Fun Fest was this week... take a look at the photos for this weeks version of what I wore.
I forgot Monday was mismatch day and so I came to school normal (in my defense it was only mismatch day for the junior high and the elementary wasn't starting their days until Wednesday)
Tuesday was Redneck/Sports Day so I supported our football team by wearing this
Wednesday I took part in hat day on the elementary school side and wore a cowboy hat.
Thursday was costume day and I went as a peacock. The costume was a huge hit
Friday was pajama day so I wore this number in the morning
on the junior high side it was elderly day so I wore this number in the afternoon
Oh and what did I do with my lovely students on Halloween?
Twas the day before Halloween and Miss Penner had nothing planned because she is a morning teacher in the elementary school
And all her students were a beggin' for a party
So after attempting to purchase some Halloween cookies or cupcakes only to discover there was none at 9:30pm left in the store I bought them some M&M cookies, threw together some "Halloween" worksheets and attempted to find a non halloweeny halloween movie.... so we watched some Pixar Short Films instead. No one complained or even noticed that I completely threw it together at the last possible second.
