Week In Review

I didn't get a chance to post at all this week. {It seemed to be super busy!!}  So I thought I would just give you an overview of what our week was like.

 1st grade read the story "A Snack for Two" in our reading books this week.  So to go along with the story, we wrote about our own forest snack.  {In case you can't read what this says, Colby would bring Lucky Charms and lemonade and sit on a log to eat his forest snack.}

It was exciting to receive our first pen pal letter in the 3rd grade.  Danny immediately wanted to go to the writing center and write a letter back so of course we made time for that!

We did lots of other things that I don't have pictures for as well. 
  •  4th grade started writing their how-to papers. 
  •  6th grade started learning about the different types of characters found in stories and started a new English unit.  They are going to be writing persuasive essays.  I can't wait to see what they choose to persuade others to do!
  • 3rd grade started a week long poetry unit.  We are reading and looking at some of the poems by Robert Louis Stevenson.  I will be posting more about that when we finish our unit this week. 
  • 1st grade has been learning all about blends - both at the beginning and ending of words.  
We have been busy!!

We had a half day Thursday and then our Fall Festival Thursday night.  It looked like the kids all had a blast!  There was free pizza, goodies to buy at the Country Store, games, candy, hayrides, and cupcake and pie eating contests!

The 1st - 3rd graders were especially excited about the cupcake eating contest.  They wolfed those cupcakes down as fast as they could!

And the winner is....Danny!

We closed the Festival with a message from God's Word.  And the kids even sat and listened well{despite the obvious sugar high they were all on by this point}. 

And Friday was a day off.  I don't know about anyone else, but I really enjoyed having that extra free day this weekend.  I was able to get quite a bit of prep work done for next week - especially for my reading units. 

What did you do with your extra time with your children?
