Wow! I haven’t posted anything in a long while! I am very sorry to all of my followers- but thank you all SO much for sticking around :) The week of Open House was amazingly CRAZY! I stayed up at school til about 7pm each night and still didn’t get everything done I needed to.
My first Open House ever went very well. I had quite a few parents that didn’t realize I was a first year teacher- and that felt GREAT! My room looked so cute- I will post pictures tomorrow because alas, I will be going up to school over Spring Break.
Yay! I am SO excited to now have 20 followers! THANK YOU! :) I am also so very much looking forward to this week. It’s going to be the first normal week I have had in a while. No snow, no trainings, no testing, no holidays. 2 weeks until Spring Break! :)

I decided we would just celebrate Valentine’s Day all week, so today we brainstormed what love is and how you can show it and put it all into a heart themed thinking map. The kids loved it and they are just too sweet! Read more
Are you looking for an easy and fun craft for penguins?
I made pieces for the kids to trace on manila folders and they traced, cut, and glued them on. I then cut writing paper that would fit on the back of the penguin. My students wrote about things penguins do. Read more
