My kids are just keeping it real...

One of the good and bad things about those little ones we teach… they like to keep it real. They are constantly calling their teachers out! They notice everything, and they are unfiltered! ha 
It can lead to funny moments!

For example: today Ms. Thomas and I decided to have our students complete a compare and contrast of us! Ms. Thomas may have been insulted when kids were calling her "big"… kid terms for taller than Ms. Simoneaux. Just didn't translate well. AND may I add she is only a couple inches taller than me! Geez.

However, my favorite contrast:
Ms. Thomas- white, Ms. Simoneaux- Tan
Why thank you, glad you noticed my glow? Or fake tanner I put on ha! A little jersey shore? Maybe. 

And how sweet… our kiddos think were "cute". Bless their little sweet hearts. Love them.

We also did a compare and contrast with "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" and "The Day it Rained Hearts". I stole the craftivity from Ms. T! You may have seen her pictures yesterday

Below is a random assortment of classroom happenings that were still on my camera.

Question Anchor Chart: For my kiddos still struggling with how to start an asking sentence. 

We also started our unit on insects. I am oddly too excited about this? Although I am not a fan of a creepy crawler, so far I have loved teaching this! 

And last… before I left school today I started my Lorax door (which I saw on pinterest). We will be seeing this soon in theaters! I cannot wait to add to this with student work and of course truffulas trees!
I would like to do a little Q&A of your questions so please comment below and let me know if there is something you would like me to post about on my blog! AND if you have emailed me and I did not get back to you, please resend the email! I promise to get to them this weekend! :)

Happy Friday!
