First Week of 2011-2012

It was a long but GOOD week. I am enjoying my students. I have a GREAT group of kids.

Here is a picture of our first project, The Kissing Hand. The kids loved it. It has evolved throughout the years.



I could have sworn I took more pictures. Apparently, I only took pictures of the students. I will do my best to take pictures of my bulletin boards once they are completely done. I am the type that might redo them a few times until I am happy with them.

I am really excited to say that the Daily 5 is going well. I have 3 kids that I know I will have to work with. They try and talk to anyone near them. The rest of the kids are enjoying Read To Self. I had a little boy approach me and asked, "Are we doing read to self again." So I answered, "Yes. We have one more round." He then replied, "Good. I like read to self." They get excited every time we add a minute. On Monday we will be up to 7 minutes.
