I'm playing catch-up here...I'm sharing what I wore both this week and last week. This post is linked up with The Pleated Poppy and these lovely bloggers:
I opted out of the military jacket :( It looks adorable on so many of the fellow stylers, but not so much for me. I also took liberty when Alison suggested wearing jeans and substituted pants appropriate for my school. Here goes...
The above picture is my version of the dressy sweatshirt from the challenge list. It was on a major sale from Ann Taylor Loft. I also purchased the olive green dressy sweatshirt (the website was sold out of cream), but it fits so boxy. I need to get my courage up to step way out of my box!
This outfit was a little ho-hum for me in the looks department, but I was super comfy all day.
This outfit was listed as a boyfriend cardigan, black & white striped top, grey jeans, and leopard flats. I wore charcoal skinnies from White House Black Market (♥), but since they are sooo dark charcoal, I think I would have been better off with black. Again, slightly ho-hum, but I loved mixing leopard and stripes.
I adore plaid, but if you'd look in my closet lately...you may think I went a "little" overboard with it. This outfit kept me warm over the chilly weekend!
I pulled from the last challenge for yesterday's outfit. That was exactly why I wanted to do these challenges...to discover a few new items to add to my wardrobe and learn how to mix & match my favorite pieces. Thanks Alison!
This week is all about BATS and we've been exploring both nonfiction and the most wonderful storybook: Stellaluna. Have you read this? It features the most beautiful text and illustrations. As a treat for your students, you can also listen to it read aloud here.
You will love it as much as your students! The clip is about 11 minutes long, so we chunked it into 3 sections: beginning, middle, end. I used my freebie graphic organizer (you can see it & download it here) and included text-dependent questions in this week's sensory bin:
So much fun!
Here's the books we're using this week:
Warning: the National Geographic book has extremely detailed photographs of all types of bats. It's not for the faint of heart! I seriously break out in a cold sweat looking at them!
