Backwards day and a pig freebie

Ok, what is it, 15 days? 14 and 1/2, but who's counting? Wow. This week has been long. I remember a college professor of mine telling my friend (his daughter) that I was squirrely in class. What comes around goes around. It's my time to pay the Piper for that. Shazam!are these kids squirrely.

How do you spell squirrely?

But today was our "special day" of the week. Each week we have one special day to make these weeks more palatable. Today was backwards day. We did everything backwards. The kids even went in the bathroom and turned their shirts around. It was fun, but not as much fun as bag day. That's pretty cool. Check out my bag day post for that idea.

So we read "Poppleton Everyday" last week and did some pig activities. I have a new unit coming out to tpt soon, but here is some of it for free. It's 8 pages of a poem and some prediction activities. I also have some grammar classifying in the larger version of the unit, and some spelling/vocab activities. I want to do some time activities this weekend and post it by Sunday in time for the sale.

Yes, my store will all be an additional 20% off over and above their 20% off.

I've needed some time lately to be a better Mom. Do you have those periods of time? My kids are at school a LOT, and we all have needed less of that. More time at home to play Farkle. And go to the library. It's been good for all of us. But I have to admit, I think it's adding to my own squirrelyness and wanting to be done. I love my job, but it's time. For summer, I mean.
Thanks for reading. Have a great Friday. One day closer.
