I left a comment at Teaching in High Heels and I was one of the lucky friends selected to receive Gladys' Turkey in Disguise Take-Home Project. It was even better than I was expecting! I knew my students would love a project that encouraged them to be silly and creative. I read Run, Turkey, Run and Turkey Trouble, then sent the assignment home. My kiddos came back with the cutest little turkeys! When they brought them in on Friday they hid them away and wanted to do a big reveal. With the exception of one friend who loves to show off. She had hers in hand as she waited in line. This project has really brightened up our Student Work Wall. I sent the writing assignment home the following week, so those aren't up yet. I can't wait to see what my students wrote.
Texas Wildlife Association. Have you ever done a video conference? They are so much fun. I would definitely recommend it if you have the technology available. My county's Office of Education offers them for free and there are other places that offer them for a cost. Anyway, we were able to book "Let's Talk Turkey." Unfortunately, it was non-interactive, which means we didn't get to chat back and forth with the presenter. But it was still fun to watch and listen in.
Want to visit the Doodle Bugs' linky party (click HERE)?Well friends, I'm off to prepare for Parent Teacher Conferences (no instruction this week). We spend Monday and Tuesday conducting conferences. Then, we're FREE!!!! I can't wait to spend time with my family and good friends.
