My bloggy buddies and I are organizing a Blog Meet Up for NM teachers. We are very excited. It will be a lot of fun and there will be some great presentations!!! Click on the above picture to check out the FB page that shows what we will be doing. Check out my blog post about it here.
I don't know if you can see it, but there is a bird on the bottom left-hand side of this bird feeder. This feeder is hanging on my class window. Yes, this is our view outside the window- it's pretty because I live and work in the mountains outside Albuquerque, New Mexico. My view last year was much more beautiful though. It was of the giant mountain that we have near our school. It was lovely. I moved classrooms though. Anyway, back to the bird. We are learning about plants and animals right now and we put up a bird feeder (thanks to our STEM teacher) to encourage bird visits for observations. The first bird that visited made the entire class yell "MRS. CHEVALIER, THERE IS A BIRD AT OUR WINDOW!!!!" This was in the middle of math. So, I froze and slowly went over to the window to snag this picture of the first bird. They were super excited.
We read about St. Patty's Day with the DogoNews website. It's kid's current events and I love it! We do at least one story a week from it. This week it was 2. The other current event we talked about was Earth Hour! Check it out. I encouraged my class to do Earth Hour tonight. You should try it too. :)
Busy week! Next week is our last week before break. I am super tired and am really ready for having a nice spring break with my family. So, I will have to come up with some fun events for the coming week to keep up the energy and keep the kids focused on learning.
Have a great weekend!
