Uh uh & Peas

These are the most used words from my child this weekend!  The "UH uh"'s are about to get her in trouble, but the fact that her way of saying please has FINALLY developed into something that closely resembles the word please, "peas," rather than a ridiculous huffing, heaving noise, is a plus! :)  Not to mention "uh, uh" and "peas" are kind of how I feel about today.  "Uh, uh" you mean Monday is tomorrow??  "Peas" can I have another day off?

You would think after 4 days home I would be more prepared for this coming week than I am.  However, even though I spent a few hours at school on Friday morning, I am still not ready!  I spend the past four days, enjoying my sweet little girl, catching up on lost sleep, doing a little shopping, a movie date with my baby, and finishing up the unit I was working on! WHEW!  I would say I kept myself busy enough, however I do wish I was a little more prepared going into tomorrow!  On Friday as my kids filed into the room and I explained that I would not be staying for the day, one of my sweet babies said "WHAT? YOU HAVEN'T BEEN HERE ALMOST ALL WEEK!"   All I could say in response was "I know sweet girl, I wish I could stay!"  My lovies would have been in HOG HEAVEN if I could have stayed and B could have stayed too..... but ugh I have a feeling very little would have gotten done!

As I begin reflecting on last week and prepping for this week... I think this quote applies very well.
I could not prevent one. single. thing. that kept me out of the classroom last week, so instead of dwelling on that, I will just adjust and keep sailing! :)

Last week I posted that I finished my math centers!

Well, today I managed to get my end of the year literacy centers D-O-N-E!  Kid you not, this was a big to-do checked off the list!! I started these like 3 weeks ago and just finished!!

These centers are full of fun, my kids have started on the synonym and antonym and LOVE THEM!!  Three of the centers offer differentiation ideas, all included!  In addition to the centers you see above, there are 3 writing prompts for summer, too!  I figure I will put their writing with their glyph when it's done!  All centers have a 1/2 page directions sheet, come in color, and black/white (except for the cause/effect task cards), and an optional recording sheet!

I also loaded both of these units to TPT together at a discounted rate for the two!  You can check it out here! :)

Tomorrow morning, my kids will work on assembling and beginning their Mother's Day book!  Can't wait to see the fun(ny) things they write this year! :)

Here are just a few of the snapshots of our weekend! :)
Berklee woke up to a surprise on Saturday!  She has been dying for a bike forever!  Every. single. time. she would see a bike or a trike, it was a never ending jabber about "ike, ike, ike!"
 A nice dinner date after going to see the CROODS yesterday!  It was a gorgeous evening, so of course we had to sit out on the patio!
Because a girl can never have enough hats, especially when they look like an owl!
When it came time to putting this sweet girl in bed last night, she went straight to mommy's bed!  She rarely sleeps in my bed and has never, before last night, went to sleep in my bed.  I didn't have it in my heart to tell her no, so here she lays!
 B loves herself some "scream!"

Wishing you a wonderful week! :)
