Hello again! It is time again to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and share our Five For Friday. We have had a very busy week full of learning and sharing our experiences with our fellow teachers! Here is what we’ve been up to.
We went on a road trip the first half of the week to Houston! We had fun getting out of town for a few days but definitely do not envy Houstonians and the traffic they have to fight.
On our way to Houston we made a pit stop at Buc-ees!
If you’ve never been to a Buc-ee’s you must go! They have pretty much anything and everything you can imagine along with extremely clean bathrooms. Buc-ee’s is a must for any Texas road trip!
On Tuesday we presented at the Texas Region 4 Education Service Center Preschool Institute. We enjoyed sharing tip, tricks, stories, experiences, ideas, and inspiration from our classroom with fellow educators. We covered many different topics including co-teaching, ways to incorporate ideas from the internet into your classroom, and sensory ideas.
We love sharing our ideas with others and hope that those who attended our sessions walked away with lots of new ideas for their classroom!
The lightbox helped us out at our presentations this week. We already have so many ideas of how we are going to incorporate it into our classroom. In fact…we have so many ideas we ended up getting a second one!
Not only did we pick up a second lightbox but we also realized we just couldn’t live without the light up star either. The star is going to be perfect to display our super star of the day. If you haven’t picked up your own lightbox yet, run out to Michael’s and get one today! The possibilities are endless!
While in Houston we couldn’t pass up the chance to eat at Pecan Creek Grille. We stumbled upon this restaurant last fall while in Houston for another conference. The food is delicious! The pancakes are ginormous and sooooo good! If you are ever in the Houston area we highly recommend checking them out, you won’t be disappointed!
We are closing out the week at Frog Street Splash! Splash is always a blast and this year is no different!
Thursday was spent exploring the Gaylord Texan Hotel, perusing the exhibit hall, and attending the Splash opening celebration. Friday and Saturday are going to be packed full of learning and presenting a few sessions. If you are at Splash, be sure to find us and say hi!
That wraps up our crazy week! We hope you have enjoyed another relaxing summer week. Make sure to come back next week for another Five For Friday packed full of summer fun!
