Ruth Ayres has a link-up on Saturdays where people link to posts that are celebrations about their week. I love this reminder to celebrate life.
One: I saw a post somewhere (and I don't even know where sadly) and the man explained how he had introduced computer programming with his primary grades using a paper grid on the floor. He had the students give him commands as he moved on the grid. Then he used activities on the Tynker site with them. I had already used Code.org with 3rd through 5th grade, but hadn't decided to go lower than that. His post inspired me to give it a whirl with 2nd grade and they loved it. They especially loved making me jump over the Pigeon and Elephant sitting on the grid. We had fun with the Tynker site too.
Two: This week was spirit week so I got to have fun wearing flannel and jeans one day, rainbow striped tights another day, sports gear, and school colors another day. The students have a blast with this and I have to say, I love the quirky clothing too.
Three: I work with excellent people who make me smile and that is a huge celebration every week.
Four: I finished the scarf that I started knitting back before winter break. It doesn't usually take me so long, but I kept putting it down & wouldn't get back to it. My dog attacked it once and I had to undo about half of it too, but it was finally wrapped around my friends neck to keep her warm.
