1. First of all my godson Ryan, was recently born! He is the most beautiful baby and he is sooo good! He hardly every cries and he lets everyone hold him. Just look at this sweet little face! My BFF is a lucky girl to have such a sweet, good, beautiful boy.2. I was having a horrible day on Wednesday and for some reason something came over my kids and they all expressed how much they loved me, which is always nice to hear, but especially on a difficult day! They were saying some really funny stuff. I was even called the "King penguin of all teachers." Hahaha! And one of the kids said I was like a super hero, while another kid replied "She is, she is saving our brains!" Kids know exactly what to say don't they? One of them even brought me an early Valentine's gift. He thought Valentine's Day was the first day of February :)
5. We had lots of fun studying penguins and learning about firefighters. We did this awesome craftivity from Teri at a Cupcake for the Teacher. I had no clue till now that my kids didn't know about fire safety! Yikes! It turned into a huge (and much needed) lesson. I take fire safety extremely seriously because something really horrible happened to a family member a few Christmases ago. We talk about it every year, which is really difficult to do, but it really drives the point home to my students.
This is one of my favorite penguin activities. The kids lift the little flaps and they can see what penguin lives in that area. This is from a Scholastic Book called Easy Make and Learn Projects: Penguins.
Yikes! I just noticed it's listed for $60 on Amazon. Would you like to own this book??
