Peek at my Week [Snowed-In Edition!]

I just got word that my district is closed again tomorrow!  With frigid temperatures and residential roads still a mess, they have decided to close another day!  That makes for one happy mommy! Until the end of the year when we have to make it up, that is!

I am linking up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughing for her Peek at my Week linky party!

The first thing on the agenda this week, if we ever get back to school, is Benchmark Testing.  Blah!  It is super stressful for the students but it gives us good data to go off of for small groups and such.  Based on my class's last benchmark scores they have a lot of improving to do!  

We are also going to continue our "Myths, Gods, and Goddesses" unit.  My students love it! I don't think they have been this enthralled with anything this year as they are with this unit.  They really enjoy listening to the stories and learning about mythical characters.  This week we will be reading myths out of the book D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths and extracting sentences within the text to discuss their impact on the story overall.  Exciting, huh?!

In Math we will be finishing up our unit on Dividing Decimals.  Going to do some activities relating word problems to real life situations in which they will have to use division with decimals in their future.  I try to make math as real as possible for them since so many of them struggle with it.

I hope everyone has a great week!  And be sure to link up!


  1. My students also love mythology! We teach it in the spring, which is good because they need something really cool to keep their attention focused.

    I'm glad you could link up this week! Enjoy your day off tomorrow. I am jealous!!

  2. Enjoy your day off tomorrow! We were off Friday, but we are back tomorrow. I would love to know what you are doing for your Myths, Gods, and Goddesses unit. I need some ideas for when I tackle this.

    I am looking forward to reading more from your blog. I am your latest follower. :)
    Have a great week!
