A Day Off and ELA Review

Today we are off of school, yet I am still doing school work...or I should be doing school work...

Isn't that always the case?

This morning we headed to the mini zoo nearby - complete with a fun ride zone.  I just wish it was a little warmer than 35 degrees.  Maybe I just wish I had worn my heavy coat and gloves and scarf... but alas I didn't and my digits were cold.  I was more than a little jealous of the birds having the heat lamps in their areas.  Yes, I understand there are people in our great nation that live in freezing temperatures all winter, but this California girl likes her 50-70 degree winter weather. 

Came home, ate lunch, and have been emailing people trying to add transportation onto my son's IEP.  Of course if I'm out of school today, they are also out of school...

Tonight we will celebrate my little sister's birthday with a steak dinner with all the fixings!  I'm looking forward to having the occasional piece of birthday cake.

Yes, this weekend has been lovely....

Yesterday I worked on this (as my husband was cheering on the 49ers).

  32 task cards reviewing Types of Sentences, Subject and Predicates, Common and Proper Nouns, Subject and Object Pronouns, Verb Tenses, and Helping and Linking Verbs.  You know, all the areas that confuse the kiddos. 

 Then after I made up the 32 task cards I figured that I should make up definition cards too.  So I typed up these 17 cards.  
 Then I switched things around in my plan book to use it this coming Tuesday afternoon as I'm avoiding moving on in Social Studies (since our Mission Reports are coming in the next day).  After the holiday the kiddos will most likely need to stretch their legs by the afternoon and it will nice to Scoot...  
Of course I added an answer key because I'm all about turning this into a self checking center later on.  

 I guess I've procrastinated enough and it's time to go grade those Friday assessments.  I hope you have a marvelous day!
