Oh. My. Goodness. We had a BLAST today, y’all!
**PSA: We had a field trip yesterday, so we started our review today.**
Excuse how dark this picture is…but we turned off the lights, played music, and let the kids just take in the scenery. So yeah…not great lighting for snapping pictures. #notetoself It was so much fun to watch their faces as they walked into the room.
We started by using the cards from the Game Show Review Week pack I posted this weekend. In order to keep them from looking at each others’ answers, I had them put their hands on their head to signal they were ready to answer the question. All other team members were required to look at the sentence and silently answer it, too. And I have to say…they did really well!
It was very tense at times… #lookatthatfocus
Then came the games. Turns out…it’s much harder to get a cotton ball off of your nose when it’s pasted on with Vaseline than you might think.
But moving M&Ms with a straw isn’t as hard. They plowed through that one SUPER fast. #maybetheyreexperts
They didn’t seem to have much trouble with this one. They were just bummed that I didn’t buy them their own personal M&Ms. But they lived. Scouts honor.
They are also MUCH better at slinging ping pong balls out of tissue boxes tied around their waists than I am, that’s for sure!
Even the crowd was quite pleased (and maybe a little nervous at times…) with watching our last game of the day. #bewareofflyingpingpongballs
To say I’m exhausted after today would be an understatement. My feet hurt. I’m mentally drained. But it was oh so worth it.
I’m ready for Day 2.
So I leave you with the BEST picture of the day. THIS is what I saw today. THIS is what made our day awesome. THIS is why I have decided to just say “NO” to traditional test prep with boring worksheets. THIS is test prep for us. 😉
Until next time…
