April Showers Bring May Sales...Stop and Smell the Discounts

Well it's Monday and I never did get my Five 4 Friday posted. 
Maybe I should just wait...Nahh!

But 1st a reminder about TPT's Latest sale.
And I'm IN.
Everything in my store is on sale 20% off with TpT offering 10% 
That's like 28% off!!
Make sure you use the Promo code TPTXO
and make sure you have made comments on all items you've purchased
(you get points that become $$$$)
I hope you stop buy, er I mean by. (heehee)

WOW! May is already been a busy month.
Saturday was spent in Anaheim, right across the street from Disneyland!
But I was at a workshop for Handwriting Without Tears.
It was a long day but I learned some new tricks. 
I don't know that we will adopt this program but I certainly will use some of the things I learned, 
so all is good.
Just wish I got to see Mickey!!

It is 5 weeks to go 
and I am really struggling with my class to grow their comprehension.
So we are doing lots of reading!
Here we are Buddy Reading
They really have Knee to Knee;
Elbow to Elbow down.
 We are also doing Prove It, Close Reading, Acting out the Stories, and Various ways of Summarizing.
And they still have troubles.
But my class is really young this year, so maybe that is part of it.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Last week was so Hot (94 degrees) we did PE inside.
 We use Go Noodle most of the time.
The class loves moovin and groovin and adding up those minutes.
Not for them,
 but to see their little mascot grow and morph into something else.
But this day we were traveling to Egypt with 
Adventures to Fitness.
The downside to this Exercise Video program is they are now charging for the their new releases.
But we are happy to "visit" our old favorite places for free.

Meanwhile my desk is disappearing under stacks of unorganized, but carefully placed paper.
But I have a good reason....
 This little one is the only one who gets me to leave early
instead of staying and organizing.
Isn't she a cutie!
She's 4 months now.

And that's where I am headed now... See Ya!
