Anyone else exhausted?

#2 An Awesome Book of Love
Stumbled upon this book while browsing at Barnes and Noble the other day.
Have you ever heard of it? Us neither...
Read it. Loved it. Walked away. Shopped around...
Couldn't stop thinking about it.
Went back. Read it again. Loved it even more. Bought it for our kids for Valentine's Day. 

 #3 Number Cards
We know, simple little things.
But, so many possibilities...
Here's how we used them this week in class.

#4  "Got Blubber?"
Said no woman ever...

Though it made for really fun conversation in the lounge as we were preparing it.
We have seen it tried in a few classrooms out in Bloggyland, and just had to give it a try.
It tied in perfectly with our Polar Habitat learning.
We followed these directions from
What an amazing website! overload. We may acquire some blubber just exploring.
We tried to find reasons why this was hard to prepare, but honestly it took about 10 minutes and was a huge hit. 

 We told them to "take a dive in the Artic Ocean (AKA ~ blue bucket) in their swimsuit". Brrr! Except our tough boys. They didn't budge because apparently our ice water "wasn't even cold at all". Some might still be there if we allowed it.
Then, we invited them to "take a dive in their walrus suit (AKA ~ red blubber bucket)". 
24 post recess little hands in one bag of blubber...
Does it get any better than that?
