One thing I do know is that we were extra busy in room 8, making up for our unplanned off days.
We've been working a bit with fractions and still have a little more to go. One of the activities we did was Fraction Mystery Bags.
Let me tell you, they loved this activity. It could certainly work with different math skills or different subjects. Mystery Bags are just another way to keep things interesting.
If you would like a free copy of a recording sheet to use with this activity in your class, click on the picture. I kept the recording sheet very general, so it can be used with many different skills.
International Random Acts of Kindness was February 10th-16th. Since we missed a couple of days during RAK week, my class finished up their random acts of kindness this week.
We also spent the week with the Presidents. There are so many wonderful nonfiction and fiction books about this topic. Students worked on some Presidential math (from my February math centers, Classroom Cupids). They also completed a research writing craftivity about George Washington. .

After such a busy week, I (as always) was totally ready for the weekend. And hallelujah, we finally had some pretty weather. My little family took full advantage of the sunshine. We ate a picnic lunch outside on Saturday. D and I had attended an event that benefited our daughter's school system. I didn't even have to wear a coat, which makes me want spring to get here tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
