Yesterday, I ran a 5 mile race in St. Louis with some friends of ours. I didn't do as well as I would have liked, but it was my first 5 mile race and I didn't pace myself well at the beginning.
Ready to run- great picture in front of the porta-potty, huh? haha
I'm on the far right with my hubby.
So, today I'm going to take it easy and work on lesson plans for now until spring break (only two week- whoop whoop!!!) I only have 8 more weeks to plan this year- THAT IS CRAZY! This year has flown by... and I know why. I have an awesome class this year and they make each day pretty easy and cheerful. I'm going to miss this group of littles!
I always do a butterfly house and we watch caterpillars turn into butterflies. I'm excited about a new hallway project for my butterfly unit. Click the link to her website to check it out. I got my new idea from Gena, over at The Techy Teacher- if you haven't been to her blog you HAVE to check it out. She has loads of awesome ideas! This is one of my favorite units to teach and I find new things to add to it each year. I always have the students keep a journal and write observations and draw pictures each day to show the changes. Does anyone else do a butterfly metamorphosis unit? If so, what are you favorite ideas?
