The second party involved Halloween sugar cookie decorating, musical chairs with Halloween music, children getting wrapped up in toilet paper like mummies, and parading through the school.
I got to take pictures and enjoy watching the kids have tons of fun. One boy said that it was the best party ever and a few kiddos in the afternoon class said they didn't want to leave school. We also made some cute word family bats that I should post a picture of next week. I didn't take any photos, but they are still at school so I can snap a picture on Monday.
I feel like I got a lot done between yesterday afternoon and the time in classroom after school today. I am really excited for the new math games that I have ready to introduce next week as I attempt to wean my kiddos off of daily choice time in order to test the waters with some more "academic" activities during the 30 minutes when some students leave for ELD. I am also super excited for a relaxing weekend filled with not as much homework as I have been having lately. My voice is totally going away, so it will be nice to sleep in tomorrow and rest up!
