Water Works

Tomorrow is 8th grade graduation. This is a particularly sentimental one because this will be the first group I watch graduate that I taught in their first year of middle school. They have grown and matured into such respectful, polite young ladies and gents. I have a very special spot for this one in particular, and I will miss her unconditional love and hugs. So this is a shout out for my gurl, Kat. I love this one. Go get 'em, girl!

Gurrrrl, I made you something. Shoot!

End of the year. Grades are locked in. 75 kids. What are you gonna do? Make stuff! For those of you who can't tell, this is a volcano--compliments of Kelcey. Thanks Kelce!

Paco the Taco World

One of the science gameboards is called "Paco the Taco World". It looks like this! Ha!

Here is what the kids have come up with thus far!

Here's how it all went down:

Folks, even if you say you're not a cat person, this one is pretty lovable. I mean, really.
