This week involved a little of this and a little of that. With no snow in our area this week, I decided to hold off on the snowflake craft that I had planned on doing. I replaced it with a cute story called "The Mitten Tree" by Candace Christiansen. It's about an elderly lady who knits mittens for all the children in the town and puts them on a tree. I should've done this before the holidays, but oh well. I printed out a mitten page (see below) and we colored, cut them out, described them, and glued them on a tree.
I found some great MLK freebies, like this one and this one that worked great with my older kids. I also used grade level passages from ReadWorks because I like to sneak in some curriculum based lessons as much as I can. This week, our schedule was really different since a lot of my kids were being tested. This resulted in me running around trying to find the kids, switching kids, etc. Needless to say, I'm happy it's Friday! And the start of a long weekend!
