Week Recap and Happy 50th Day!

This week has been crazy. It has had extreme highs and extreme lows, but it ended on a great note! I am very lucky to have some friends in my room who are absolutely caring and loving. One of my little girls brought me a huge flower and the sweetest note ever today. I pretty much started crying reading it. Here is a picture:

So we did get some learning done this week. My friends have gotten really great at reading centers. Here are some picture of them working really hard!

One of our big focuses this week was the election. Two great packs we have been using are:

 I made these big posters to record our information on Obama and Romney.

At one point, some of my friends starting making fun of someone who liked Romney. I had to explain to my friends that everyone has their own opinion and you wont make fun of someone if they liked oreos and you liked chocolate chip cookies. It really helped them realize that they all like different things. It was really cute.

Today, was our 50th day of school, and my friends were really excited. One of the activities we did was to write "50 Reasons Why We Love School." They were so excited, and I had trouble keeping up with all of their ideas. Number 2 and 3 are definitely my favorite (and I didn't have to bribe them to say it!) :) Here is a picture of our list:

Well, thank goodness it is Friday! I am definitely ready for this weekend. :)
