I hope everyone had a very happy Easter!
I didn’t have Friday or today off : ( We were suppose to have Friday off, but we had to make up a bad weather day. Boo! I was still able to go home and see my family though since I live close by! It was so nice to be home for a weekend.

My whole family ready for church!
I am down to 8 more days of student teaching! 8! Where has the time gone? I’m not sure!
 I have been doing a happy dance all day because I  have FINALLY finished all of the assignments for the Capstone class that goes with student teaching. I can’t tell you how many papers, reflections, lesson plans and discussions I have written. I am SOOO happy to be finished with all of that!
Today we started non-standard measurement. I filled plastic eggs (haven’t gotten over Easter yet) with different lengths of gift wrapping ribbon. The kids each got to choose an egg and open it up. Everything is more fun hidden in a plastic egg! Then the kids measured their piece of ribbon using unifix cubes. They then compared their piece of ribbon to their classmates. They kept a record of whose piece of ribbon was longer, shorter or the same size as theirs. The kids were really engaged and enjoyed interacting with each other. I want to make a cuter worksheet to go with this activity then I will be happy to share : )

Well I'm off to watch my Texas Rangers! I am LOVING the start of baseball season!
Happy Monday!
