What a Week!!!!

Hi All,

It's been all kinds of CRazy weathere here in Chicago, we started the week with two days of - below temps with high wind chills....brrrrr. Can I say how happy I was that school was canceled for two days. Although I was excited to see my little firsties, I didn't want anything to do with that wind chill!!!! I stayed hibernated for two days. I also gained a pound or two yikes!!! I have successfully lost 50 pounds with regular excercise, and eating right, so hopefully the weather will be betteer, so I can geet out to the gym. Anyhoo, our week went great, the first day back, I felt confused all day, and 10 students wer out, just a weird day. The next two days I was back, really back (mentally), and we got a lot accomplished. I am such a graphic organizer person, I love creating graphic organizers to accompany text. I create graphic organizers that support textual evidence and close readings. I love when my students really think deeply about text. This week we read Amazing Grace, I just love that story.  My kids made lots of connections to her.  I love the fact that she is a girl, who wanted to play the role of Peter Pan! Girl Power :) If you never read the text, its definitely a must read.
We discussed her inside and outside traits, as well as our favorite part, and we answered text dependent questions. My first graders loved the text and the activities. If your interested and doing those activities with this book go check out the graphic organizers in my store! click here
Happy Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to get out to the mall with my fam, and hopefully end up at the Cheesecake Factory, my fav restaurant, and they even have a slice a cheesecake made with sweet!
