Happy Monday everyone!!! How many of you had to head back to school today?? I did, I did!! We had our first official day back today, which meant lots of meetings but also several hours in our rooms. SCORE!! One of my favorite things from today was a team-building exercise that we participated in as a grade level team. Since there is only one pre-kindergarten at our school, they teamed up with us. We had to race around the school grounds searching for clues and completing tasks!! Luckily we were told last week to make sure to wear sneakers and comfy clothes today!! Our Amazing Race clues were in pieces, so once we found them we had to put them back together again. One of our tasks was to work as a team to make a pan of brownies, another was to dribble a ball down a line, and several more. We had a lot of fun, even though we did get really sweaty and our team came in no where near first place. We weren't dead last though...almost, but not quite!! Lots of laughter during this activity, which is great for a Monday!!
Today I am linking up with Kelly and Kim's Kindergarten Kreations for their Markdown Monday linky party. In case you didn't know, this linky party involves marking down a product or two in our TPT store for the entire week. This week I am going to continue with the products I marked down last week, which works because they are great beginning of the year activities!! <And I'm also really tired from the Amazing Race today, so this is my 'Easy Button' for Markdown Monday ;)> You can read all about these great mark downs (yes, there are more than one!) by clicking on the picture below. It will take you to my last week's post about these products.
Please don't forget to head back over to Kelly and Kim's Kindergarten Kreations so that you can see who else has linked up and are sharing various products at marked down prices. There are all sorts of educators who link up, from many different grade levels. I'm sure you'll be able to find something to interest you!!
