Long time, no blogging, but I'm finally back!

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend!  I'm so happy to be blogging as well as linking up with Anna Nuttall's Bloggers Link-Up and The Blended Blog for Friday Features!





Super Artist Rob Surette Visits!

On Friday our PTO treated our school to an amazing assembly in which extremely talented artist Rob Surette painted and put on an inspirational and moving assembly:

How can you make the longest paper chain?

We've been working on measuring and drawing lines using rulers.  One afternoon I gave each student a piece of 8.5 by 11 inch paper.  Then I told them to make the longest paper chain possible.  Several students used their rulers which made me so happy!

Welcome Winter ~ Whether We Like It Or Not!

As I sit here writing, the first snow of the winter is starting to fall.  I always enjoy incorporating poetry by my favorite poet, Doug Florian, in my morning messages.

It's Nice To Be Important....


The day after I used this Morning Message, I asked the kids to tell me what their parents always tell them.  The next day, many of my students came back with the following answer:  "Clean your room." 






Did your parents ever tell you the same message over and over?  I always heard this one, too:  "Freckles are a sign of beauty."

Please feel free to leave me a message to let me know!
