Back and forth... Two steps forward and one step back... But we are moving forward.
I always plan to do something fun on Friday afternoons. But Fun-Friday has to be earned. So, I usually have a few kids that have to go hang with the principal, or with another class while we have our fun project. Also, by Friday, I will have a few other or my troublemakers already out of the classroom because they are in ISS. Someday, someday all my kids will earn Fun-Friday.
Last week we painted birch trees. It's an easy step-by-step process and they did a wonderful job! I love how some of them turned out. They all had their own unique look.
It was messy and busy and we loved every minute of it.
