First, I’m on Spring Break! Yahoo!! I have so much planned to do in the next 9 days. I really think I should make a list so I can cross everything off as I do it. Chances are, I won’t even get half of what I want done. That’s usually what happens.
Second, I went and saw The Hunger Games last night. I haven’t read the books yet. I’ve wanted to, and I own them, but I just haven’t taken the time. I want that to be a goal for spring break but I’m a little afraid that’s all I’ll want to do and I’ll spend 3 of my days reading the books. So, maybe towards the end I’ll let myself start. Also, for any of you that haven’t read it yet either: I completely followed the movie even though I hadn’t read it. There was only one thing I was uncertain of, a symbol a character made, but you could figure out enough to know what was going on. I thought the movie was great and highly recommend it. With that said, it was pretty violent and I wouldn’t recommend it for youngsters.
Third, have you entered the giveaway I’m in at Life in Special Education yet? You have until Wednesday to enter.
Last, I just posted a Easter themed CVC game freebie for my Facebook followers. I also posted a status that tells you how you can get a personalized version of the game for your students practicing a phonics or math skill. Click on the picture of the game to head to my Facebook page to download the game board, or to let me know what skill you would like me to create a game for. Hurry, though, I’m only taking information until tomorrow, 3/25!
