Cr-aaaaazy week!

What a crazy week it's been! My little darlings completed their state standardized testing in math on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thank goodness! They all worked so hard, and really put their best effort forward. That's all anyone can ever ask for. I rocked my favorite zebra print shoes for good luck...


I think it worked! :)  Linked up to "Share Whatcha Wear" with Closing the Gap... in a Cute Outfit!


I found out on Tuesday that my class was chosen to participate in a program called STARBASE. It's a national Department of Defense program where fifth grade students travel to a local military base and participate in hands on STEM activities with chemists, physicists, mathematicians, and engineers. We will go to an Air Force base nearby for 5 whole school days- 7:30am until 3pm. I've never been, so I'm not sure exactly what to expect, but our agenda includes things like robot engineering, testing Newton's laws, and building & racing our own mechanical cars. Best of all? It is free. That's right- F-R-E-E. Whhhhhhaaaat!? Practically unheard of. Check out their website for more information.


Don't forget to check out my giveaway! It ends tomorrow, and there are LOTS of great prizes... including a TpT gift card! 


     

Gotta share the love about a few other great giveaways, too. 


Happy belated Teacher Appreciation day, fellow teachers. I am in awe of the dedication, work, and love that go into all of your every day teaching.
