We are heading out within the hour to go to one of our favorite seasonal spots. It is only open during maple syrup season. They serve all you can eat pancakes and sausage with their own maple syrup. Yummy! It is set in the boonies (most places around here are when you live in towns with one to zero traffic lights!). We love the cozy log cabin atmosphere and fire:)
Vacation cannot come soon enough...two weeks off starting March 23, then we come back to two weeks of ELA and math state tests. I am looking forward to them just being done!
I like honesty!! You cannot imagine what little fibbers we have experienced this week in 4th grade! My goodness! Do they really think we were born yesterday? geesh...
I love my honey! We have used this term since we started dating in 1996 and it has stuck. There are different tones of "honey"...elated, excited, angry, tearful, you get the idea...My roommates in college used to always pick on our different "honey" voices!
I hate HOT summer days. If it could be NY fall weather all the time, I would be so happy (another "H" word!). The humidity in NY can be just unbearable and exhausting in the summer. We do not have central air (not a staple in NY), so those sleepless HOT nights can be torture!
NEXT...The natural disasters projects were quite a success! The students enjoyed presenting them and it was a great learning experience incorporating much "rigorous" nonfiction text.
Since I had some interest in my materials for the project, I have revamped them to put on TPT. From now until tomorrow morning, you can get the 10 page packet of materials from TPT
as a flash freebie! After that, the pack will be $2.50. It is a culminating project and addresses so many common core standards.
If you download, I would be so grateful if you could take a moment and leave feedback on TPT or pin the project:)
I also want to link up with Diane at Fifth in the Middle (so sorry that this post is all over the place!) She is hosting a wonderful linky where bloggers link up by state! Genius. I cannot wait to see all the other bloggers from NY:) Go check it out and link up for your state!
Thank you friends and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
