Preparing for open house.

Countdown is on for getting everything together for open house.  The theme this year is Education.. It's bigger here!  So my team and I are incorporating spring and plants into our theme to tie it into our curriculum.  Today my class read the Tiny Seed and created a story map using a flower template.  In math we made spring time fact family flowers and tomorrow we will make synonym and antonym catepillars and butterflies using contruction paper.  With all that said I have alot of circles to cut out! 

Goodbye Spring Break! Come on Summer Vacation!

Back to school I went after having a long stay at home doing absolutely nothing but play with my daughter.  Today wasn't as bad as I expected!  My students weren't overly active and they really enjoyed the lessons that I had planned for them.  As I finish up my day in technology training I focus on the fact that we only have 10 Mondays left before SUMMER VACATION!!!!!!!  Did I say I was also missing Dancing with the Stars. LET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!!

Welcome to my Blog

Welcome to my blog!  It's a work in progress but eventually I will get this thing up and running.  My plan for my blog is to provide my parents and students an opportunity to review what we've learned and will be learning during the school year. I also see my blog being a chance to connect with other teachers and share ideas with one another about content and strategies used in their classrooms.  I can't wait to see what this blog turns into!
