I don't know about you all but it seems there is always so much to do on Friday and the day just flies by making it that much harder to get everything in. We always assess the standards that have been taught that week on Friday and I try to get them all graded and ready to send home but it just didn't happen today. Today we had our first Brown Bag Book Club. I wish I could say this was my idea but I got it from Cara Carroll at The First Grade Parade. You have just got to go check it out! My kids absolutely loved it and were asking if we could do it again Monday! We won't be doing it again Monday but I have decided to MAKE time to have the book club every Friday. I just love to hear my kids talk about books and it was wonderful. I just wanted to take a seat and listen to the chatter... the book talk going on around me. If you haven't tried this in your class you just have to. You and your kids will love it. Below are a couple of pictures I took today.
