In that moment, I rewind everything I've done over the last week and realize that I made a HUGE mistake. I taught my kids that if the groundhog sees his shadow that means six more weeks of winter. Good, right? Yeah, stay with me. I also taught my very impressionable six and seven year olds that if he doesn't see his shadow that means a LONGER winter. Oops! Apparently, no shadow means a shorter winter. Who knew? I know it's my fault, but Wikipedia did not mention that no shadow meant a shorter winter. Plus, in my mind six weeks is kind of short. Well, maybe not short to people that live up North, but to this Southern girl, we've had all of ten winter days, so six weeks really didn't seem like torture. Oh, and do you know that the first day of spring is March 20. That's six and a half weeks after February 2, so you can see my confusion... well, I can see it.
Anyway, hopefully on Monday I can undo a little bit of my explanation of Groundhog Day. The funny part is I save all of my kids' writing. Well, half of them wrote that they didn't want the Groundhog to see his shadow because they want a long winter so they can get snow. Oops! Sorry kids! I know one thing. I am most definitely going to be skipping Mardi Gras and several other mini holidays. I might scar this group for life. Well, maybe not scar them, but I might have reworked a few of the connections in their brain. Let's just pray that when they do get to the CRCT there aren't any questions about American holidays.
Okay, so that was my morning. The rest of my day consisted of breakfast, a nap, leftovers, and creating, creating, creating. I finally finished my Lincoln and Washington packet and I cannot wait to use it! Below are pictures of a lot of the pages. If you purchased my MLK Jr. packet and liked it, you will definitely love this one. I used the same formula I used with that packet. I also created sheets where you can use it from kindergarten through third grade. If you like what you see, click on my sale banner and go grab it. The sheets to the left and the right of this paragraph are being offered in the preview. If you would like to go get them, click on the pictures. It will take you directly to this packet so you can download them. Remember, the TPT sale is only tomorrow, but my sale runs through Monday, so I hope you will go check them out.
Hope you guys load up tomorrow! I know I can't wait to get some clip art and a few other items.
