Last week Princess Nagger’s school had a Curriculum Fair – basically an open house where you wander through the school checking out the classrooms your child spends the most time in, with their most fun/prominent work on display. First stop was Princess Nagger’s main classroom and her desk’o’stuff:
I was able to get a quick shot of a couple of her fellow classmates desks with their habitat projects proudly displayed:
Her Alligator Habitat Project made it safe and sound with its trip on the bus:
I was only able to get a closer shot of two of her classmates habitat projects before getting pulled in multiple directions:
I thought it was very clever covering the outside of the box with leopard print material for the leopard habitat, don’t you?
Princess Nagger wanted me to make sure I got a shot of their ‘Spicy Words’ board – according to Princess Nagger, “Spicy words are big words that you can use in a story and make it sound good.” I’ll take her word for it:
Next she wanted me to take a picture of her playing in the classroom cupboards…alrighty then:
Next we visited her Gifted Program classroom – and of course I was negligent in taking any pictures before we headed off to her art classroom. She wanted me to be sure to get a shot of the 4th grader’s art project – she’s excited to see that when she’s in 4th grade she’ll finally be allowed to make a clay dinosaur:
But the highlight of the evening (for Princess Nagger) ws running into her BFF (who’s a third grader and a full head taller than PN) and standing in a line for half an hour to purchase a Ned YoYo. You read that right – a YoYo. That was her favorite part. Well, that and trying to figure out how to get the YoYo’s to work right while standing in the middle of the art classroom as I’m nervously watching and making sure they don’t send the YoYo’s off into some poor student’s hard work:
Apparently the YoYo fun made the hubby nostalgic for all the YoYo tricks he used to do way back when – so he’s ordered himself a top-of-the-line (if there is such a thing) YoYo to teach Princess Nagger how to do tricks with – something about this particular YoYo will ‘sleep’ for 12 minutes. I smell some blog fodder coming on. Do you know any YoYo tricks?
