Making Connections

 

In the classroom this week we are working making connections…for about the 3rd week in a row.

We read this great book! We can ALL make connections with Alexander!

Then we wrote about our connections!

We also made an Alexander and then my friends made themselves, too since they were CONNECTING with Alexander and his horrible day!

{Alexander had a bad day.  This reminds me of when my sister was crying and I hardly got any sleep!}  As she was making herself, she said, “Mrs. Richardson, how do I make sleepy eyes??” Didn’t she doe GREAT!?!
{Just like Alexander is unlucky, I am unlucky at basketball.} This one made me giggle!
{Alexander didn’t like pajamas and I don’t like my Scooby Doo Pajamas.}

They turned out pretty cute!

One last thing…I finally finished my awards (that I started 2 weeks ago) last weekend and then went back and forth between uploading them to TpT and not, but I’m glad I did! They have been a hit so far!  Take a peak!

Check them out {HERE}!

Have a great rest of the week!!

Happy Teaching,
