Today is Tried it Tuesday!
It's also my first official 39th birthday.
I have had so many special gifts, cards, and surprises today.
My heart is full and I feel spoiled and extra loved.
I got called to the Front Office...with no explanation other than...
"Come up here...now!"
When I came back to my room...there was no light.
I heard lots of screamin'.
My babies were throwin' confetti & streamers...
and balloons were everywhere.
They tricked me again!
One of my sweet girls bumped me off my computer
to log in to her Gmail for a special Powerpoint
that some of my girls got together and made for me.
Here are some of the pictures from the Powerpoint:
They added a guitar because we are the Rockstars.
My principal's son, Russ Spivey, is fightin' a very rare form of leukemia.
This month marks one year of his fight against this awful cancer.
My students are very passionate about the SpiveySTRONG message.
This brought tears to my eyes.
They incorporated Math!
I couldn't be more proud!
They know me so well!
Aren't they the sweetest ever?!
A sweet gift from my best friend. A January Alex & Ani bracelet for
Jerm had flowers delivered to school from my favorite florist.
The BEST birthday present of all...
our school will be closed tomorrow for a SNOW day.
Snow in Florida...tonight
That just sounds odd doesn't it?
I have never seen snow...that I remember.
I am sure it is beautiful and I'm glad it will only last one day.
I'm ready for the 70's to come back and no I'm not talkin' about the
wonderful years of my birth...with scary lookin' clothin'.
I'm linkin' up with my special buddy, Holly, from Fourth Grade Flipper
for Tried It Tuesday.
Tried it Awesomeness #1: Knee to Knee Partners
I said, "Quick, knee to knee" and they scooted together and compared their answers
for a Science study guide.
They had to explain why they came up with their answers.
I had three groups of knee to knee partners goin' on
around the room.
Simple and successful!
Tried it Awesomeness #2: Hands-on Science
I put the stuff on the table for them to make circuits.
I did not give them any directions and they were able to make the light turn on.
Many chose to work together in order to get their circuit to turn on.
They built series circuits and parallel circuits.
They even made multiple series circuits.
This is just another example of me lettin' go...
It was so neat to listen to them as they discovered how to
make the circuits work...without me!
Happy Tuesday my friends!
