I've been busy for several reasons:
Back in September, my school was named a National Blue Ribbon School.
As my principal said, it's nice to have an outside agency recognize the hard work being accomplished by the students, teachers, and community. But as teachers (ALL teachers), we do this every day not for recognition, but because it is the right thing for our kids.
This recognition has brought a lot of guests into our building recently, so I have been busy after school making up for that lost time.
Funny enough, THREE of these guests looked around my room and recognized it from my blog. How funny is that??
I have also posted a Day of the Dead writing activity to TPT.
And if you use PicMonkey, did you know you can turn your pictures into a Day of the Dead sugar skull? I haven't had a chance to play around with it, but I will this week as my kids finish their name skeletons.
I made this halloween Long A sort long ago, in hopes of having several games to put together into a unit... Alas, I do not. So enjoy!
