Peek At My Week 3/21

Thoughts of spring were quickly derailed early this week with yet another snow day. Thankfully, the temperature has risen a bit and snow is far from everyone's mind (for now, at least). This week was a little of this and a little of that. Plus, the FIRST DAY OF SPRING! Which actually turned out to be a pretty nice day.

Highlights of the week:

My younger kids enjoyed Robert Munsch's book Andrew's Loose Tooth. I love his books! For homework, I pulled a tooth graphic from My Cute Graphics to make a quick homework sheet that I jotted down targets for home practice. This book was great for prediction, past tense verbs, and answering WH questions!

I pulled out a spring themed freebie from last year for synonyms - Bee-utiful Synonyms - to work on synonyms. I continue to use pages from S.L.A.M. too because it's quick and easy. At this time of year when I'm running myself ragged trying to assess, attend meetings, and do therapy, that's all I can ask for!

And now...drumroll please: I spent a whoppin' ONE DOLLAR on something this week that became a total hit with my kids. It is the magical giant fly swatter from Dollar Tree. You can tell that it's giant in the picture about, but I kid you not, it is giant. Like "I feel silly walking around with this thing" giant. But I added velcro to it and velcro to some laminated pictures and we had great fun slapping pictures and naming what we found. This would work quite well for lots of goals! Trust me and go get one!! 

Those were highlights from my week! What did you do to bring in spring?!
