I have to say that I was a tiny bit sad that there was no Talk About It Tuesday yesterday.
To make up for all the sadness, I watched Vanderpump Rules, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Nineteen Kids and Counting. Those three shows didn’t make up for it entirely so I think ice cream is in order tonight. This is clearly an I need to have ice cream type of situation and it’s not an I just want ice cream because it tastes good type of situation.
I thought I’d show you what some of my kids are doing when they finish their work early.
You might call these kids Early Finishers.
Or you might call these kids Hurry up and finish this as fast as we can because we want to win the contest that Mrs. Oldham says we’re not having, but surely we are, there must be a contest of some kind, and we are going to win win WIN, we are the first ones done!
In all reality, my kids don’t have too much extra time to do anything, what with all the standards and daylight savings time and field trips and recess and Go Noodle and math and recess and not getting trash into the trash can but taking extra care to get it right next to the trash can.
But, in the rare instances that they do find they have some extra time, they can come on over to our Writing Center which houses some extra activities that reinforce concepts we’ve been working on such as sight words, addition, subtraction, grammar, etc.
It’s in the Writing Center because I had room for it in the Writing Center.
There is no other reason than that.
