The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 5

The Good:
Kim and I are birthday buddies. She was so sweet and sent me this gorgeous figure for my birthday. Thank you Kim!

The Random: 
We learned about Fact and Opinion this week. Two of my kids handed me this after recess....
"fact = j is tickalish. why bc I said so"
"opinion = s &j are good at reanacting the titanic bc people think we are bad (but we are not)"
"fact = there are more than a million people in the world bc someone conted"
"opinion = people have to get a degree. why. because you would get a bad job if you don't"
"fact = I like ice cream bc I said so"
 Love it!

The Fun:
We went and read our polygon books to the kindergarteners Thursday. My kids were so amazing and the little guys loved their math story time!

Ha Ha! I think it's an absolute fact that ice cream should be loved "because I said so!" Happy Birthday!!

Love those facts vs. opinions!! My kids always loved going into read to the k/g classes!

I'd love it if "because I said so" was really all that was needed to make something a fact!! I'd have a few 'facts' of my own to toss out there! I think it's so fun you and Kim are birthday twins - what an encouraging treat for the both of you...and I love those wooden figurines!

Great gift! So cool the older kids shared their books with the younger ones. I love it when classes can mix like that. They do it for some things in our school too and its a great experience for both age groups. Enjoy that warmer weather and have a great week.
