1. Our first grade team participated in a Lesson Study on the book Fishing in the Air. We met a few times to find our Common Core Standard to focus on, find a matching book, activities and lesson plans for 3 days. We were then able to observe each other to focus on student engagement and evidence of higher order questions. It was a great experience.
3. The kids are loving anything Pigeon:)
4. Soccer season has started here in Florida so we have practices on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday nights and most games at 9:00am on Saturdays. I already miss our lazy Saturday mornings!
5. Florida Residents pay for a day at Sea World and can upgrade to an annual pass for the same price! On Saturday, Justin and Zach talked us into sitting in the soak zone in row 3 for the show. Needless to say, we were wet, but oh so close to these beautiful creatures!
Only 4 days next week and a teacher workday on Friday for report cards:) Then off for spring break for a week. Life is good!
