We had some schedule changes this week, but our class did a great job "going with the flow." Mrs. Kilkelly visited us to talk about Spiritual Adoption Program on Tuesday and a letter was sent home explaining what this entails. The kids really enjoy hearing about the progress of their adopted babies and seeing the life-size models. She usually leaves us with a sweet treat too which the kids don't mind either.
We've also been blessed with some surprise October warm weather which we tried to take advantage of. Today we got out to practice sentences with linking verbs in front of the school today with sidewalk chalk. I told the kids to use the last few minutes before lunch to draw Halloween pictures, but some asked if they could do math problems or Egyptian pictures.... "SURE!!" I said! The sidewalk looks very bright and lively now.
