What is it about inservice days that make me exhausted. I typically do much less than a day with the kids but for some reason by lunch time my eyes are sleepy and that's all I want to do!! Anyway! Made it through. Our school added some excitingness today! 

Check it out:

A BIG hundreds chart! Their little feet can fit in those squares!!!

A U.S. map!!!

 The continents!!!

Basically I feel !!!!!!!! about this. I LOVE being outside. Especially with the students. We didn't really have anything like this before. I am def. getting outside for some of this awesomeness soon!! They will LOVE it!

A new 'lil mini-pack! Did you know there are food holidays basically every single day of the year?? Well there is! I decided to choose at least 1 a month to incorporate into our learning. The kids always love celebrating and why not! They say silly things like, "Hey, my Mom didn't even tell me it was pretzel day." It just cracks me up! Pretzel day is officially October 26, so we have a couple weeks yet. I have made a few activities they will enjoy, along with bringing in a big bag of pretzels that day! 

Check out my pretzel mini unit HERE!
