Peek At My Week 6/20

Disclaimer: Affiliate links are included for your convenience.

It's finally here. The last Peek At My Week of the school year. Unfortunately, it is not yet the last day of school. 3 more days and then it's officially summer vacation.

This week, I had a craft. I also had loosely planned lessons. Which sometimes got thrown by the wayside due to schedule changes, field day, or some other occurrence. I'm not surprised.

The craft was an easy paper plate and construction paper beauty. Cut a paper plate in half, glue on strips of paper and draw some clouds. We talked about summer vacation and what kinds of things they liked best about the grade that they will soon be finishing.

When time allowed, we read a funny book called The Sandcastle Contest by Robert Munsch. It's a good summer themed book about a boy who builds an elaborate sandcastle. 

After field day, I managed to see a couple kids. I work on past tense verbs a lot with these students, so retelling the field day stations was a great way to use these verbs in context. The students had fun telling me what they had to do at each station. Besides sweating it was 97 degrees when we did field day, which makes me wish we did this in the winter!

Overall, it's been a good year. Thank you to all those who tune in weekly to see what happened in my therapy room!

Next year, I plan to try something different and post ideas for the week at the beginning of the week rather than the end. Thoughts? Would you prefer this format? If so, comment below and leave your email. First two people to do both can chose a product from my store (no bundles)!


  1. I think it would be great to have a Monday Peek so as I'm prepping I can apply the ideas you have right away! Maybe we could do a linky party as I do a similar feature on my site?!?! My e-mail is

  2. Yes. Beginning would be better.

  3. Beginning of the week sounds good. Gives me a few days to get it ready for the next week. Love your ideas.

  4. I just like that you share your ideas and what worked :) Posting at the beginning of the week might be nice when it's holiday-related, but if you're like me, pre-planning that much isn't easy during a busy school year. Thank you for all you do!


  5. I actually prefer the end of the week...then I have the weekend to prep!

  6. Oops, forgot the e-mail:

  7. Great idea to post at the beginning of the week so we can plan for the week and discuss how it's going!

  8. I like hearing about what you did during the week. It might be nice to hear what you will do during the week, especially on those weeks when I am fried from too many meetings or life interferes with lesson planning...and with 4 children, sometimes it does!

  9. I thought about posting at the beginning of the week, but then I thought the end was better since sometimes things just don't work out, and I like to mention what didn't work & how I modified it.
