We also have Back-to-School Night (open house) Wednesday evening, so I can't wait to get that done with. I never enjoy that night. They sit there staring at me while I explain and show things and you know some of them are not taking in a thing I'm saying. lol
Today my siblings and their families and myself are taking family pictures as a Christmas gift for my parents. We haven't done this for 6 years and there have been 3 new members of our family since then. So it should be fun. However the plan (since there are so many of us) is to do it outside and there is an 80% chance of rain. lol The Plan B is to be in a gazebo in a park if it's raining. So we'll see how all of that goes and how willing some of the little kids are with cooperating. lol It might be a long afternoon in the rain. lol
I'm going to leave you with a freebie I use in my room every year. The students have to think of a wish (goal) that they have for 2nd grade. Maybe it's to make new friends or to practice their spelling or math facts or to learn how to tell time. They write them down and draw a picture of themselves accomplishing that goal. I display them for Back-to-School Night and then put them in their writing portfolio and talk about them at the first conference and see how it's going. Click on the picture to get your free copy.
Happy Sunday everyone! :)
