It was Bella's first time playing on the beach. At first she didn't care too much for the sand or the ocean, but after a few minutes she loved digging in the sand and making sandcastles. She still is not too fond of getting her feet wet in the ocean. I carried her over to the water and put my feet in. I think the ocean was a bit overwhelming for her and she said, "No mommy, I want to go in the baby one". We have a big pool and a baby pool in my community, so I guess she thought there would be a big ocean and a baby ocean too. :)
It was a great end to summer vacation! I got to spend some last minute quality time with Pete and Bella. Now I am ready for a new school year!
On Monday, I will see my kiddos' smiling little faces! I can't wait to see them and ask them about their summer adventures. My room is ALMOST finished, so I will be posting pics soon. :) I just wanted to finish some small details. I'm making my welcome gifts for my students and will post them this weekend. They are looking adorable! I can't wait to share them with you.
So, it is Friday and time for another freebie. Sorry it's so late on Friday, but hey it's still Friday, right?? I didn't get home until after 7 tonight, so by the time I ate dinner and got Bella situated and asleep it was late!
At the beginning of the year, I like to collect small writing samples from my students to figure out their strengths and needs in sentence writing. On this monster-themed sheet, students will pick some of the words from the word bank to write 2 sentences.
This worksheet is part of my Vowel Monsters pack. If you like this and are interested in more, check it out here!
I will be posting pics of my classroom and back to school gifts sometime this weekend. If you are starting school Monday, good luck to you!! If you already started, I hope you had a smooth start to the new school year! Let's make this our best year yet!
