It's Five For Friday! I am excited to participate in Doodle Bugs Teaching Linky Party!
I am also quite happy for the weekend! I might even be doing this
and take more advantage of my "life in paradise".
Monday was our Teacher Development Day and I had to do a presentation.
It was nice to receive some good feedback.
My students did such an awesome job writing about their Easter Break! Look at the amount of information they poured into their stories. They definitely had a lot to share :) I am very proud of them! Not bad for 3rd Grade ESL students!
This week our focus in Science was on the Water Cycle, and here are some activities we did to fit my students' different learning styles.
It is a only a 6 minute video (which is very important due to the kids' short attention span) and the explanation is wonderful.
I also found this fun song, which we've been practicing and, I hope, will present to some younger grades to "teach" them about the Water Cycle. :)
Here are the lyrics

We also did a simple Water Cycle experiment where we filled a glass dish with hot water, put a lid on it and watched all 3 transformations take place.
I've been trying to get back to my healthy eating habits. I fairly recently fell off track with my diet :) Maybe it's been a couple of months... My "allowed foods" list contains mostly veggies, meat, a little bit of fruit and...Ukrainian food. Here is a shot of my husband's favorite "Stuffed Peppers":)
