So...that's what today was!! Back to the Future Day!!! For all of you Back to the Future fans, today is the day Marty McFly and Doc fast forwarded to, October 21, 2015! Therefore, we dedicated today, Back to the Future day!! So...we spent the morning talking about the movie and what the had "predicted" technology to be in 2015! We looked at the top 10 things that were completed such as wall-mounted tv's, hoverboards, and web communication just to name a few! We also looked at some that didn't quite make the cut or were completed much earlier than projected such as the fax machine being a main form of communication!! It was quite a funny list to look at! We also filled out a "what would I take with me if I went back to 1955?" That was entertaining, and of course IPADS, iphones, Xbox, and famous singers made the list!! Besides all those fun activities we of course had to finish the day with the movie Back to the Future 2! Since 4th grade won the box top challenge last month, that earned us a popcorn, pop, movie party...so we did a combined day and accomplished it all in one afternoon! The kids had a blast!
Overall, it was a fantastic day!! We will wrap up our week tomorrow with our selection test, math test and spelling test! I know...ugh...lots of tests!! The good news is...we get a THREE day weekend, and we get to start all fresh next week!! YAY!!!
I do want to say a big THANK YOU to every parent that came to PT conferences! I loved getting a chance to visit with ALL of you!! You have great kiddos, and I love having them in my class!! Please, let me know if you EVER have any questions or concerns, and I would be more than happy to answer them! I can't believe the first 9 weeks is already over!! We still have LOTS to do and accomplish, and I will keep you up to date on upcoming activities!
Have a happy Wednesday,
