Happy Saturday! I’m going to combine my “Celebrate Saturday” and #SharpSchu post into one today.
2. Thanksgiving Play
On Thursday my wife and I met with our second grade son’s teacher for his conference. We are really proud of our little guy, and very thankful that he has a teacher that gets him. We learned during the conference that on Tuesday his class will be performing a Thanksgiving play that he wrote. Apparently the play has been a great community building experience for the class. They are even designing a set!
3. A Great Staff Meeting
Yesterday we inched closer to finishing the craziest run of the school year. Between Labor Day and Thanksgiving we get zero days off of school. We could have spent Friday’s staff meeting talking about a million different things. Instead, we headed to the gym and did some bowling. It was the perfect team building activity. It was exactly what our staff needed.
We have the best staff meetings. #wsdpanthers #parmastrong A photo posted by Colby Sharp (@colbysharp) on Nov 11, 2014 at 5:21am PST

You have to check out James Burks YouTube channel that includes his new series “Drawing With This Guy”. In the first two videos he teaches viewers how to draw the characters from his Bird & Squirrel graphic novel series. In the future he’ll feature guest illustrators that will teach viewers how to draw their kid lit characters. My kids are so excited!
My kids love @jamesburksart’s new YouTube drawing videos. A photo posted by Colby Sharp (@colbysharp) on Nov 11, 2014 at 4:15am PST
5. Simple Machines
My students and I are having a blast studying simple machines. They love getting their hands dirty and digging in.
