Today I'm joinin' my sweet BBB Joanne from
Spark Student Motivation Saturdays.
I was ready for this week to be O-V-E-R!
My poor kids deserved this weekend to have a break from me.
They have worked so hard the past several weeks.
They needed some F-U-N to get them
through the next few weeks.
It was a MUST to spark some student motivation
before the dreaded state testin'.
What could be more fun than peggin' your teacher
with water balloons?
I promised my kids that if they gave me their full attention
this week and practiced all of the test strategies I have
taught them, they could then peg me with water balloons.
Turnabout is fair play though...teachers also work super duper
hard durin' state testin'.
So...WATER BALLOON FIGHT!
Got these at Dollar General. $4 a pack.
I didn't fill up all of them...I still have plenty left.
This took a while to do because the nozzle that was included
in the bag did not fit the sink at school.
I was soakin' wet before we even made it outside.
The girls gettin' ready...they look a lil' scared.
Not the boys...they are ready for action!
Of course we had to take a selfie.
The kids let me get each of them individually.
They all got ME at the SAME time.
Let's just say...some of them have unbelievable aim.
They all helped clean up the tiny pieces and are
already beggin' me for us to do this again before the end
of the year.
They will just have to wait and see.
I also asked parents to send in snacks so we could
have a ROCK the FCAT grazin' party.
The idea behind this...eat all day and be merry!
I have a feelin' my kids are goin' to knock this test out...
just like they knocked me out with the water balloons!
That's okay...it's just water and I know this will be
a day my kids will remember for a long time to come.
Happy Saturday, friends!
