I'm ENGAGED!! And a little peek at what we did last week

Well oh my goodness have the past few days been crazy or what?! Let me start by saying that I just recently got engaged to my boyfriend of three years-- yay!!!! We are both soooo excited being the overachieving workaholic that I am, I am already starting planning!! 

But before all the excitement of the engagement, there was a little unit called Spiders and Bats that we were all wrapped up in this week. We also did Abby Mullins' unit "The Candy Corn Bandit" and oh my word my kiddos were loving it. My little sweeties were bringing in homemade "Candy Corn Bandit Traps" this year!! I certainly didn't have that last year when we did this unit! One little boy even brought in homemade quicksand and candy ( to bait him with and draw him towards the quicksand), Needless to say, this week flew by and I can't believe it is already the weekend. Here are a few pictures from our week:

Our Candy Corn Bandits and we made a "WANTED" poster for him. All of the "big kids" in our school are helping us look for him in order to get our reward :)
 These are the spider craftivities from my Spiders and Bats unit. As soon as we are done making the bats, I want to swap these out and hang up our spiders on the window with our spider webs!

Here we are playing the "Bat Cave" game from the unit. 

And here are a few of our finished graphs!

I hope you are all having a great weekend!!
