Weekend Update Freebie

Every Monday I am bombarded by 19 little darlings who are eager to tell me about what they did over the weekend.  I consider myself fairly good at multi tasking, but I CAN NOT listen to 19 stories at once!  I am also trying to collect folders, notes, lunch money, put out he did this, she said this fires, and also every once in a while breathe!
So every Monday we do a Weekend Update.  We have daily morning journals with topics,  (You can check it out here at our TPT store.) but I needed a quick and easy way to "hear" about my kiddos weekends!  Now when my kiddos come in on Monday and all try to tell me about their weekend I tell them I can't wait to read about it and not to ruin my surprise by telling me now!!
The best part....IT WORKS!  They head straight in, write about their weekend, and turn it in.  I read it sometime during the day and write a few little comments on their weekend and give it back. 

Easy Peasy Mac and Cheesy!!!!!!!
Here are some examples of my kiddo's Weekend Updates from this week!
