|Homemade cards and hand written messages make Valentine's Day special for teachers.|
|Sweet Skittles math matches the day.|
Typically it's a day that makes teachers feel special with lots of special cards, sweets, and messages. Early this morning, the day got off to a good start when a plant a child gave me bloomed. Later I received those special messages, and engaged in students' special learning experiences.
|Students' creativity made the day special.|
In reading they worked on a Valentine's Day play and in math they used Skittles to review math vocabulary and 5th grade concepts.
Tomorrow and the following days we'll focus on a systemwide assessment as well as student portfolios. Then our one-week February vacation will begin.
