We started our day at a full speed! We knew we had A LOT to get done and that's just what we did!!! We finished up all morning work, a presentation, and pumpkin decorating all before 8:55! Then after PE we took a spelling test before heading to Brookdale Assisted Living for an amazing visit!! The kids did sooooo good handing out their fall treats (trail mix bags, pies, fall crafts, etc) and visiting with the residents!! It was an amazing thing to watch. We even had some kiddos play the piano for the residents!!! After we got back, we had one more presentation and some AWESOME cookie decorating!! THANK YOU Addie and Anna for the cookie decorating tips and supplies!!!!!
To end our day, we finished with our Because of Winn Dixie Party! We watched the movie while eating egg salad sandwiches, Peanut Butter sandwiches, dill pickles, Dump Punch (lemonade), and Littmus Lozzenges (strawberry/rootbeer) candy...just like in the story!!! It was a FANTASTIC end to the great week we have had!!!
I can't believe how fast this week went, but we accomplished a lot!!! Next week we will be back to it!! We will be continuing through Unit 2 and we will be starting a new story!!
This weekend make sure to read those books!!!
Have a great weekend,
