Oh my goodness was Catholic Schools Week exhausting! Last night I came home, collapsed on the couch and took a hard earned nap. We had so much fun last week with all of our activities but I am definitely looking forward to a normal week! Earlier this week I posted a little bit about what we did on Monday. The rest of our week went a little something like this:
Tuesday: Teacher luncheon and Vocabulary Parade
Wednesday: Movie in the afternoon
Thursday: "How Well Do You Know Your Teacher?" Game Show and Invention Fair
Friday: All School Mass, Science Show, and 5th graders vs teachers kickball game
All throughout the week we had Penny Wars and Candy Grams (buy a candy bar to send to a friend and write them a message).
Our vocabulary parade was so much fun! The students all had to dress up in a costume or outfit that represented a vocabulary word. Here is a pic of a couple of the kids dressed as "technology" and "orbit".
We had so much fun but this teacher was absolutely exhausted by the time it was all over.
I wanted to share with all of you the bulletin board we ended up going with for CSW. We tried to stick with the theme of "Raising the Standards":
Each student had to write one goal on a circular piece of lined paper and illustrate themselves achieving their goal. We put it into a cross formation to keep with the CSW theme. Next to our board, we had the words "Kindergarten is raising the standards". I love this crinkle border I saw on Peace, Love, and First Grade. Laura is so creative, you should check out her blog if you get a chance!
Have a great Saturday!!
