Here are a few things I have planned for this week.
Today, I am running in a 5K race. I'm excited to see how it goes. I've been running quite a bit lately, so hopefully, it will pay off.
On Tuesday, we have a very fun lesson planned for social studies to introduce the Revolutionary War. We will simulate how the colonists felt about being taxed by using Smarties. There will be a king, two members of Parliament, and two tax collectors (chosen at random). Everyone else will be colonists. The colonists will be given Smarties, but they will be "taxed" based on totally random things like wearing shoes without laces. I am super excited about this lesson, and I will definitely blog about it later this week.
This Friday, we will finish up our reading assessments (Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessments). I highly value the data that comes from these assessments. I'm looking forward to using this information to plan for future activities.
I'm off to my race. I will be back to see what everyone else is up to this week.
Thank you, and have a great week!
