Friday Fun & Weekly Recap

Hooray for Friday!!
This is perfect!  If I give True/False questions, I always make them write out the word. Never thought it would STILL be unclear! 
And now a quick recap of the week.

 #1 - Clark's Reservation
On Memorial Day, we brought my daughters to one of my favorite state parks in New York - Clark's Reservation. Due to budget cuts, it was closed until recently so it was nice to share the trails with my girls.
#2 - Tuck Everlasting
Started reading this with my class this week - tough vocabulary but beautiful writing and the kids can't wait to know what Winnie will decide.
#3 - Lewis & Clark Play
The 5th grade team put on their play this week. My husband and I brought our daughters Wednesday to see the evening performance. Lots of laughs - Clark was hilarious!

#4 - Planted Annuals
After battling some bad weather, I was able to get most of my annuals planted, including my new window boxes. :-)  
#5 - More rocket fun
Most students were able to glue on their second fins today despite the uncooperative muggy weather. They are tricky little devils to get to stay put!

And as a bonus....
My End-of-the-Year Student Gifts were featured in the Busy Educator Newsletter. Marjan has linked to some fantastic ideas - you can check it out here.
Swing by Doodle Bugs to link up and share your week!
