Superhero winners and Deanna Jump

Because this weekend was so SPECIAL, and there were 44 entries in our "Superhero Fluency" Unit Give-Away, we decided to award 4 lucky winners with our unit.  Thanks to all the wonderful bloggers who entered!  

Another reason this weekend was so SPECIAL was because as board members of the Wisconsin Kindergarten Association (WKA), we were able to help organize a fabulous conference with 300 fellow educators on Saturday featuring the AMAZING Deanna Jump.  Yes!  WE were able to spend the evening and day with Deanna!  She is truly a genuine southern sweetheart!  The WKA presented Deanna with a Wisconsin Badger's sweatshirt to keep her warm on her journey back to Florida.  

We walked away with many new ideas from Deanna.  She showed us a lot of great ideas for integrating Science into our Reading and Writing.  She also shared some super cute charts, graphs, manipulatives, and record sheet ideas during her presentation.  As soon as the conference was over, we ran to the first craft store we could find...MICHAELS....and bought Stems and Pony Beads to make our "Sounding Out Words" manipulative.  

Thanks to Fuddruckers for not "kicking us out" and to the people that took interest in asking us WHAT we were doing!  Here is the photo-proof of us at Fuddruckers being teachery creative!  (Of course, this was taken after we ate our delicious sandwiches!)
