 If you need to make any type of graphic for social media, Canva is the place to go!  There are plenty of free options, and you can upload your own pictures ~ which is what I did to create this masterpiece:

  



Morning Messages

On May 4th, I took the day off to go to my younger son's graduation.  When I know I'll be absent, I do try to prepare a Morning Message like this:






 I LOVE telling my students about my favorite teacher!




 I wrote this Morning Message, especially for the parents!





 After we finished the MCAS, I rearranged our desks into a "U" shape.  Unfortunately, this arrangement led to excessive chatting and fooling around so the desks returned to rows with 2 students desks put together.  Plus, we had an entire day of "Quiet Time" which most of the kids enjoyed and preferred:







 Double Graduations

 On May 4th, my younger son, Andrew, graduated from Northeastern with a PharmD degree:






Yesterday (May 12) my older son, Derek, graduated from UMass Amherst with Masters degree in Public Policy and Regional Planning.  In addition, Derek got an Outstanding Student Award:


That's Derek with his fiancee, Kaylee.  They're getting married in June of 2018 in Vermont, Kaylee's home state.




AAA rocks!

Have you ever wanted to go home so much after work?  Every day I'm looking forward to going home for a change of venue and to put on my fleece sweatpants!  The day before Andrew's graduation, I got to my car, turned the key, and heard "click, click, click..."  I knew this was a situation for AAA!


I love how they come with a brand new battery!




Book Recommendation

Check out this new non-fiction book with a narrator who is a penny:

https://www.amazon.com/One-Proud-Penny-Randy-Siegel/dp/1626722358/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494705192&sr=8-1&keywords=one+proud+penny

We really enjoyed reading the history of the penny.  This book would make an excellent addition to any money unit, too!

That's it for now!  Thank you so much for reading my news.  If you would like to read more adventures, head to Doodle Bugs for:
