No one (in my class) threw up.
No one (in my class) melted.
However, there were a few of mine who were sure they were melting!
I informed them that "Melting Children Notes" were much longer forms than the
standard "Nurse Note" that I have to fill out when they go. So I asked them to PLEASE be certain that you are melting
before you tell me you are hot and need to go in.
This seemed to work on our first round.
I kept them hydrated and amused (I did the obstacle course and got stuck in a hoop), I also juggled (scarves), and blew some awesome bubbles!
I was a little sad because I didn't get a participation certificate for all of those wonderful bubbles that I blew.... (hee hee- for you Jennifer K)
I did get a little sun- but I was so sweaty (and if you are a petite, delicate flower, you make want to look away for a minute) that when I went to the restroom, I felt like I was trying to get into a wetsuit when I was done! I don't think I have ever been that hot and it was only 90 today.
I stayed until close to 7pm tonight-
Don't be jealous if I show you.....
Before you get too upset, thinking that I'm all perfect and everything- take a look at this: (Where's Holly's Good, Bad, Ugly Link?)
I pulled all of that out today and now I have until 7am Monday morning to get it all put back together because we have school for 1.5 more days.
Monday we have awards and they are going to use their last batch of coins to go shopping for the last time!
Since they do not have any time left to use Be Proud Read Alouds or Fuzzy Friends, I decided to change it up.
I purchased almost $75 worth of candy and party favors.
There are bubbles, girly girl stuff and guy stuff.
so there will be desks marked with prices and limits
I am going to decorate some boring baskets and let the children use them.
$.25 for bubbles, $.10 for sunglasses, $.03 for a piece of candy, etc....
Chickadee is going to go with me Sunday to set it up and to make sure that everyone has at least $2 worth of coins in their cups.
I'll be sure to have some pics of the store once it is complete and they are ready to shop!
Also remember there are only a couple more days left to vote
