We had an absolute blast studying the Olympics! We’ve incorporated the Winter Games into our nonfiction standards and writing prompts. We watched 3 minute recaps each day, had some great discussions, lots of snacks, made salt dough medals, cheese torches, rings out of fruit, and so much more! I’ve marked my resource on TPT down to $3! Head over to my blog at www.pencilstopigtails.com to read more about our week. ... See MoreSee Less
A beautiful picture taken by my sweet friend Belinda Grant this morning. I wasn’t sure if my k students were aware of the recent school shootings but one sweet boy said to me today, “Mrs. Statum... if bad guys come in and shoot at us then we all have to pray. We have to.” Later I overheard another student say at the end of the day, “Yay! School is almost over and there were no shooters!” Please pray for me as I try to respond to their thoughts and guide these precious kids. I’m not going to get all political on this post but enough is enough.
