Shecklet #3 had fun bartering at school this afternoon. The first graders prepared many items to trade with their friends and parents. To end the day, they got to enjoy snacks that were representative of the ancient Egyptian times.
Shecklet #1 had to complete a few enrichment projects for their Revolutionary War unit. Here is the comic he drew.
This kid. With a little help from Papa and his dad, he came up with “The Light-up Chore Sign.” He tested it with five families (including ours) and received positive feedback from all of the parents 🙂
This guy received the Student of the Month award for his class for the month of February. The character trait he was selected for was positive thoughts. I think he was both surprised and excited to be chosen by his teacher.
Shecklet #3 is celebrating her 100th day of school today and gets to dress up like a 100 year old 🙂
Shecklet #3 celebrated the last day of school before Christmas break with a penguin party at school! Kindergartens and two guests were invited to join them. The kids sang songs about penguins and we had breakfast together. ❤️
This year is the year our house has been contagious with just about every common childhood illness/bug. First it was pink eye. Everyone except for me (so, so thankful I didn’t get it) had it at some point over the course of a month. Then it was hand foot and mouth. Only one (#4) casualty there, but I think it was due to the others having had it when they were younger. Now we have lice. Yuck. And what a pain to get rid of! Laundry, hair treatment, constant checking and a missed day of school for the one who had it. I am praying it stops with one and we don’t all end up passing it around. 😝😷
I went on a field trip with Shecklet #2 and his 3rd grade class today. We learned a lot about the old flour mill and the river that used to power it. Great field trip!
My mini-me, Shecklet #3, is off to her first day of kindergarten!
Here she was at the end of the day. Her response to my asking how the day was, “Can I go back tomorrow?!?” I think that means she had a great 1st day!
Shecklet #1 and Shecklet #2 started a new school year today. Fourth grade and second grade. I can hardly believe it! Part 2 of back to school starts on Thursday. #4 asked to have her picture taken with her oldest brother. (#3 is MIA because she was still sleeping.)
