You know you're in a small town country school when.... closes down for the county fair! Yep, that's right. We got a 4 day weekend for the fair. A lot of our kids are showing animals (not the one above... he's from a few years ago) and participate in other events throughout the week, and everyone gets the time off because of it. How cool is that? Although I adore my class very much, I have been so thankful to have this time to rest up and get some things done.

On Monday, we are going to be finishing up an adorable plant craft that we started this week. I can't wait to share the pictures with you!  Then we'll be starting a unit on animals.

I'm also going to be taking over one of the reading groups this week. Reading has always been my favorite thing to teach so I am very excited about this! I already have some great ideas swirling around in my head!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Enjoy the cooler fall weather! :)

PS: If you think closing school for the fair is crazy, you should know that the district I went to growing up closes on the first day of Deer Season. Love it!
