Happy Halloween!!! I’m linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday (it’s 11pm…it still counts!) 🙂 – Read on for 5 random things from my week!
We aren’t allowed to do any holidays at my school, but we do “harvest parties” on Halloween day. Think pumpkins, leaves, and seasonal stuff! It’s still fun, but the kids definitely aren’t fooled into thinking it isn’t Halloween! They are still hyper and wild, and I still look like I AM dressed up for Halloween by the time the day is over (think bride of Frankenstein)
Every day at math time we do number talks and practice different ways of representing numbers. During center time my kids have become obsessed with playing school. There are about 10 of them that literally debate who gets to “be Mrs. John” while the others are the students. What they do while they are playing school amazes me. They did this complete number talk for the number 7 together while they were “playing.” Anyone want to tell me now that all they are doing is “playing?” Play is learning!
How was your week? Link up and share!
