A Fun Saturday and Classroom Idea

Today was a great day at my school.
I told you yesterday about the big 5K/1 Mile Tiger Trot.
The weather was perfect and it was so much fun
seeing my students out there and running.
The PTA donated 100% of the money to
It's a great organization and "Izzy" could not have been a nice guy.
Here is my daughter and I with him.
Have you ever stood next to an NFL player?
I felt tiny next to him.
This is my daughter and I before the mile run.
She ran about 3/4 of the mile.
It was such a fun mother/daughter time.

Looking for a fun activity to use in the classroom?
How about using dry erase markers on desks?
I did this the other day for math and it was a HUGE hit!
Can you imagine the reactions when I said
"Draw a blank number line on your desk."
"Should we get out our dry erase boards?"
The kids were so good about it.
They never tried to draw their own pictures
or anything not related to our lesson.
At the end of math, I let them have two minutes of free time to draw.
Everyday when I tell them to take out their supplies,
they give disappointed groans when we don't write on our desks.
I will probably do it again this week for them.
What sort of fun things are you up to this weekend?
