Teacher HelpersSeveral of my little cuties are sure that they want to be teachers when they grow up. They take home all my extra copies and teacher junk when I am purging in my classroom, play teacher at home and recess, and help with anything and everything in the classroom.
So they cracked me up when they came in this week with name badges. Of course they had to have them because I have a name badge that I wear! Stinking adorable when the first thing they do when they walk in one morning is to come right over and show me how they had talked at recess and gone home and asked their mommies for badges! The very next day they showed up with these!
They were so excited when I told them that I could make them some "official" helper badges while they were at specials. They now wear these everywhere!
Making a word search and then giving it to a partner to solve.
Writing on desks with Expo markers.
Giving each other a test. (Little teachers!!)
Hands on Science Museum.
Every year we have a Hands on Science Museum that makes the rounds of the district in tubs. Our 5th grade teachers are in charge of implementing it. So they send out a sign up sheet, we sign up for a time, and the 5th graders come and help our kiddos go through each of the stations. I love this every year! Our 5th graders are such great helpers, the kiddos love rotating and learning at each station, and it is so much fun to see the kiddos that I had in 2nd grade growing up and being so responsible!
Indoor recess....enough said, right??? We have been inside for way too many days lately due to the cold weather. Bleh!
Movie night. We have started having movie night at our house since the girls are getting bigger. It is such a fun new tradition for us. We order pizza for dinner, have popcorn and shakes for a snack, and watch Cinderella. Yes, you read that last part right!!! We watch Cinderella.....every single movie night so far!!! We keep trying to suggest a different movie, but my girls are completely in love with Cinderella! So now every Friday all 5 of us watch Cinderella! My hubby and I keep hoping that at some point the girls will let us watch a different movie! :)
Lovin on little brother before the movie starts!
