But now that I have a few moments of down time (rather a few MONTHS now!), I thought I'd finally jump back on to share some fun last week of school "moments" with you all! Sooo, here are my "top 3" that I thought I could cram into one quick post:
1. In School "Field Trip"!
We were blessed with some extra PTA money that allowed us to bring in a company called "High Touch High Tech". They did a GREAT rocks lesson-- "Dig It!" Our kiddos got to "dig" for their rocks, then explore their attributes, sort them, and figure out the different types from a key. Very fun (for both the class and me, since I got to have a few minutes of "down time" while the scientists were teaching!!)
2. Field Day!!!
I don't know when everyone else has theres, but here in Texas, by the time we have it, it is normally HOT HOT HOT! Luckily, it was a BEAUTIFUL day, which was such a blessing, considering we had no water activities this year (due to city water restrictions....yes, I do live in Texas!) We DID have some new, fun inflatable activites, though, and one of my teammates and I even raced up the slide and went down together :) Fun fun!

|and very disheveled afterwards! :)|
3. Popsicle Possibilities!
After Field Day, we had extra recess, a picnic lunch, and then a sleeeeeepy afternoon! The class was SO very tired after spending all day in the sun, so we cooled off with a fun science "experiment"-- my Popsicle Possibilities! We made a prediction of how many licks & bites it would take to eat our popsicles, then got to enjoy them! Finally, we answered some follow-up questions and got to use our creative skills too! I love this activity!
So there you have it, my top 3 activities from our last week of school! I can't believe it's already over. It truly flew by!
