Linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!1. Native Americans- Didn't have time to cover near Thanksgiving but loving it right now. They loved making wampum necklaces, navajo pouches, and symbol writings.
2. We completed some activities from The Teacher Wife's Action Verbs packet. They also just love this song.
3. Silent Speedball- This game is an awesome brain break. The students LOVE it. The way we play is use a soft foam/sponge ball. The object of the game is to throw the ball to one another in no particular pattern. Last one standing wins! When you say go, players begin to toss the ball around the room. They should make eye-contact with the person they intend to throw the ball to. Also, everyone should have a chance to have the ball.
If you talk, you're out!
If you make an uncatchable throw, you're out!
If you don't catch a good throw, you're out!
If you complain in any way, you're out!
Stay by your chair and speed is a factor!
4. Spent some quiet time Friday afternoon at our local State Park. It's simply beautiful.
5. I'm OVER lice. Too many of our 2nd graders are going home with lice. Do you have a nit free policy? Any tips!
