Happy weekend, everyone! Time for a little Five for Friday love! I'm bringing to you a variety of recaps... from school, to faith, to personal life. Enjoy and hope everyone is doing well!
If you don't follow Proverbs 31 on Facebook, you need to. This was posted a few weeks ago, and spoke volumes to me. We are all trying to make changes, do a gazillion things at once, etc. This is profound because we need to remember to start small. Take small steps to get where you are going. You can't and won't do it all at once.
In 5th grade, we have been spending a lot of time working on our annotations. Earlier this week, we started reading Arachne. First, we did our annotations. We went through the first page together to ensure that the students could see what this should look like. I modeled my thinking while reading, to show them how I stopped after every few sentences to annotate. From there, they worked with partners to annotate the rest. Next, we will move into "Texting the Plot" and determining the different components of plot from this story.
California, you may have my heart.
I hadn't been there in years, and was reminded why I loved it so much. My girlfriends and I took a trip to visit a friend, and while there, we ran a half marathon. It was such a wonderful weekend full of food, laughing, hiking, relaxing, and more dancing! We took over 400 pictures of the beautiful scenery and can't stop talking about our time there. I can't wait to get back there...
As you enter this weekend, take some time for you and enjoy the scenery.
