Happy Sunday! Our neighbors came over last night sort of spontaneously . . . we sat around our fire pit and laughed and talked until the wee hours of the morning. Midnight is considered the wee hours of the morning, right? I mean it was already Sunday when I went to bed! So knowing that we didn’t have church until this evening, it was really nice to sleep in. Murphie was up late, too, and so she slept in, as well. I think we will have her trained in the sleeping department by the time she is two or three or seven years old, surely.
I have been busy re-vamping my Social Studies unit on Transportation. I LOVE LOVE LOVE teaching Social Studies and my kids LOVE LOVE LOVE learning all about whatever we are studying. I am about to teach Matter in Science and I am sad to say that I do not have the same love for it . . . or even like for it . . . I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I have never liked teaching Matter. I’m just being truthful, people, and it is Sunday so I feel the need to be honest today. Feel free to turn me around on this.
One of our California standards (this was back before Common Core – you know, in the Dark Ages) was to teach our kiddos how transportation has changed over time . . . and now we pretty much continue to do that, but with more of an emphasis on the Common Core standards. My team and I just decided to tie it all in and then I made a few changes to my unit and bam, there you go. We covered cars, boats, aircraft, trains, and spacecraft, which I saved for last because the kids go crazy for it.
This is adorable! I would love to win one!
