Playing 'Ketch-up"

                                             Playing 'Ketch-up'

Today started out rough, but ended rather well! I woke up with another migraine again this morning (I think this one was stress related... and possibly cause by the extremely long day I had yesterday). This migraine was particularly bad, but I went to work anyway for a multitude of reasons. 1. My summer classes started last night and I have A LOT to do before we meet again on Tuesday (MIGRAINE), 2. It's the end of the year and I have A LOT to do in the classroom in regards to EoY, 3. I really needed to finish a project with my kids. OK- so now that you know why there wasn't a post yesterday, I should probably mention that I am going to try REALLY HARD to post next week, at least twice, but no promises. 

Moving on... when I told my kids we would be 'playing catch up' today, I got some very funny responses. I love how literal they can be sometimes! We FINALLY finished our Career Day projects as I dubbed them, and we talked about Career Day (which was yesterday). So here are a few pictures of our projects:

Left: Police Officer, When I grow up I want to be a police officer because I want to keep people safe. I like to do this job because it is fun.
Right: Vet, When I grow up I want to be a vet. Because I want to let animals feel more, more better and play some more with their toys.

Left: Rock Star, When I grow up I want to be a rock star because it's fun to sing. And you get to die your hair.
Right: Teacher, When I grow up I want to be a teacher. Because I think that job is fun and I want to work with children.

Music Teacher: When I grow up I want to be a music teacher. Because I like music!

     Here is the reflection activity I had my kiddos do today, be sure to get your copy by clicking the link below.

Here's how some of my kiddos did on their reflection:

This student reflected on learning about a state trooper and doctor.

This student reflected on the designer and park ranger.

This student reflected on the state trooper and designer. 

     These two activities were the highlights of our day, we had P.E. and our 4th quarter book log event. 

     And... here are some pictures of our Summer Sunshine Glyphs:

Here is the code or legend to our glyphs.

Can you decipher our sunshine's?

Have a GREAT Friday night! Don't forget your Career Day FREEBIE and to follow my blog :D


  1. Hi, Would you be able to email me the Career Day file? The link you posted no longer works. When you respond I will provide my email address.

    1. I sure can- sorry for the delay in responding, still learning to juggle life as a mom and teaching :)
