^another spark of genius when I had a bag of airheads and decided to have them eat their airhead without talking and tape their wrapper on a paper. They wrote adjectives as they ate slowly and thoughtfully :)

^they wrote 2 sentences about their airhead using adjectives (look how naaaasty their name tags are. at this point in the year I am not going to replace them. so ya, it looks trashy)

^my friend Wes came in to visit my class and teach them about bears, particularly polar bears. He came last year and the kids absolutely loved it. He studies bears and has spent time in Alaska doing research. Wes is really good with the students and brings in a polar bear skull, ear, tooth, claw, and heavy winter coat. SO NEAT! They loved it. Perfect timing since we've been learning about living things and parts of animals that help them survive.
