Apples and Go Get 'Em Week!

Did you think I had fallen off the face of the Earth? I feel like I might have. This week was so crazy! It all really started when school was canceled last Friday. We had insane rain and flooding, which is very rare in west Texas. Friday was suppose to be our big apple day, so it was postponed til Monday. I'm sure you already know this, but "Friday activities" do not make the best "Monday activities." 
We also had picture day, the book fair and college week all going on. Ahhh!

Here are a few pictures from our apple day: 

Crockpot applesauce was a success!

We measured with apples. 

This was one of the activities I put in Word Work this week. It was so exciting to see a few of my kids create the sentences correctly! I might try to put it on TPT : )

We also did the CUTEST apple graph. I am so mad I didn't snap a picture. It's hanging in the hall so I will try and take one to share. 

This week was "Go Get 'Em" week.   It's basically just a week to promote higher education and college. I taught my kiddos the Texas Tech Fight Song and we read some of my cute Texas Tech books. We also did Texas Tech writing and took pictures dressed up as the Masked Rider. We even used "Guns Up" as the hallway quiet signal for the week. 
My little Texas Tech door. Look at my Masked Rider big pumpkin! I also love my Texas Tech pumpkin. Modge Podge : ) 

They looked so precious! 
He looks creepyish with his mouth blacked out : ( I am going to print them all out and add them to my Texas Tech door. 

All was well until we had a little Aggie invasion:

Luckily we let him in because he is so precious. Look at his little hat case! We aren't allowed to wear hats at school, but he brought it for show and tell for the letter H. 

If you aren't from Texas, you probably don't understand any of this : )
 I'm sorry!
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
