Week 38

It is so hard to believe this was our last full week of school. We have 2 more days until the end of the year. This school year has flown by and I'm going to really miss these kids when they are gone!


This week we had our 5th grade graduation. Once they finish 5th grade they head to middle school.


Everyone was all dressed up for the occasion.



After graduation we had to get out and have some fun!


We played a game of kickball against Mrs. Reasner's class. We lost by one point but I told the students if they weren't having fun they shouldn't be playing. Needless to say, we all had fun!



We also dissected frogs this week! This first picture cracks me up! Alyse doesn't look too pleased.


Timothy did his best "frog pose" for the camera. Can you see the resemblance?


Most of the kids couldn't wait to get their hands on the frogs and others weren't quite sure they wanted to participate. I didn't make anyone do it if they didn't want to.


I found a great app to help the kids follow the steps to dissect the frog. The app is called Frog Dissection. It just did the internal organs. Of course we also had to check out the tongue and take out the eyeballs.



We celebrated the end of the week with field day and our class party.


We played all kinds of games like tug of war, 3 legged race, relays, water pass, and lots more.

It was around 95F outside and the girls decided to pose for a picture so everyone could see how miserable it was!


Thankfully the Monrovia Fire Department showed up and helped to cool everyone down!


The remainder of the day was full of more fun and games.


STUDENTS: I can't believe this school year is coming to a close. I am so sad to see you all go to middle school, but I'm also proud of each of you. What are your plans for the summer? Are you planning to relax at home or take a vacation?


  1. I don't know what I'll be doing this summer. I'm pretty sure I'll be stuck at home the whole time. ):

  2. Well we're going for a vacation in like June or something but it's going to be an adventure.

  3. I am probably playing softball for the summer. In July I'm going to Panama City Beach for my vaction for what more softball.
