A Peek at My Week {11-10-13}

For those of you who have been looking for me to post this week's linky party, A Peek at My Week, I apologize that I am getting to this so late!  I will try to be earlier in the weeks to come ;).
Whew....I am so glad ECSTATIC that last week is history!!!  We had WKCE state testing all week -- an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon -- EVERY day.  My poor kiddos were so tested out at the end of Friday that I felt so bad for them.  I don't know about you, but I hate being out of my daily routine so I know what they must have felt like.  I'm looking forward to a "normal" week this week....

So here's what I have planned...

Writing:  We will be working on the local annual writing anthology contest.  This year's theme is "Figure it Out."  I really like this year's theme because I think the kids can do a lot with it -- the interpretation is up to them.  We'll see how it goes!

Social Studies:  Every day after we finished WKCE testing last week, we worked on our Native American Museum projects.  Students worked in groups to research a Native American tribe that is important to Wisconsin's history and are putting together a museum "display" to teach others about their tribe.  The kids were loving this activity and took their research very seriously.

Our Museum Walk will be on Thursday.

TpT:  I'm excited to announce that I (think) I will be ready to post a big project to my TpT Store later this week.  I have been working on it for awhile, and I don't want to say too much, but I can tell you it is something that will motivate your students to read A LOT!  (Check back later!  ;)

So now it's your turn!  Link up below and share a Peek at Your Week.
