Learning Randomness & Did You Hear.....????

Yes, I'm still alive. Yes, I still blog. Yes, I seem to fall asleep for a quick nap when I get home and then I blog stalk and then I crash again. Yes, I'm back. What a whirlwind the past two weeks have been. With this whole snow thing, it's really caused me to fall behind in a lot of areas because I'm so busy trying to play catch up in other places!

So I'll catch you up on a couple of projects we completed for Valentine's Day (totally missed due to bad weather---so it happened the day AFTER President's day!), President's Day and Dental Health.

Ugh---I'm struggling with Picasa tonight!!!

So we decorated our Valentine's boxes. Unfortunately, with all of the days off and everything, we had very little to put in them, but the kiddos still had fun!

Then we played catch up on President's Day. I did not hit on it as much as I wanted but we read a Weekly Reader and used a Mimio activity that I found discussing President's and the White House.

We also made George and Abe. I have had this project for YEARS! And not exactly sure where it came from because I've had it for so long (probably a great retired teacher passed it down!)

One side is George and then you flip and the other is Abe.

How cute!!!

Then we worked on some Dental health activities. I hate that everything I did the past two weeks was so quick but I wanted to make sure I didn't skip anything!

We talked about how to keep our teeth healthy and what we needed to do to fight away those "sugar bugs". As a whole group, we came up with ideas to keep our teeth clean. After, I partnered the students up and they created their own cavity fighting shield. 

 Idea came from Pinterest (Source)

So that's a quick wrap up of what happened last week! I will be back later this week with some fun Black History activities we have done!

Oh---did you hear??? I'm so excited that I'm going to be an author over at Teaching Blog Round Up!!! There are some incredible bloggers already over there, so I'm honored that I get to participate as well!
