Well, I've survived 2 days back after break (I'm so happy we had Monday off!). Our first day back actually went really well...but I'm pretty sure that's because the kids were all pretty sleepy! Haha. Today was good too though, just a few hyper little friends. I still can't believe how fast this school year is passing...though I am looking forward to summer :) I think there's something like 35 days left?? Crazy!
Today after sending the kiddies home, I heard a weird beeping in the classroom. So I searched around...and found a Tamagotchi!!! Haha, took me right back to my childhood. I remember when these things were banned from school back in 5th grade. Good times. Needless to say, I'm taking care of it for my student for the night. :)
Anyway...I'm in LOVE with my new math & literacy stations. As I've mentioned, my kids love Star Wars. At first I thought it was just the boys, but I've heard the girls saying that they play pretend Star Wars at recess too. I don't know exactly what it means to "play" Star Wars, but they enjoy it! A few of my kids got a sneak peak of these stations when I was cutting laminating and they couldn't believe what they were seeing. It's the second time this week that I've been "the best teacher ever!" ;) (The first time was yesterday when we switched book box books and I allowed some of them to choose chapter books for the first time. I love that they get excited about that!)
There are 10 stations included. Here's the breakdown!
(2) Sight Word Game-Students choose 1 card without looking. If they can read it, they keep it. If a student chooses a card that has Vader on it, the game ends. 42 basic sight word cards, 6 Vader cards.
Maybe you have a group that would enjoy these as well!! Here are the links again:

I can't believe tomorrow is already Thursday. Have a great rest of your week :)
