All I can say is....

Boy oh boy...has it ever been busy! Did you know that there is something better than being a teacher?!?!

It is being a grandma...We had our granddaughter this weekend and we took her to her first horse show with her pony.."Friday." Skyler and Friday brought home a blue ribbon, and in the words of a 4 1/2 year old, it was the best day ever!

So much for getting ANYTHING caught up (this weekend at least!)

Only a few more days…

and my new kiddos will be walking through the door!
Such an exciting time. When they came for
orientation  I gave them this
"Getting Your Feet Wet in Kindergarten" activity.
“Click the image to grab it”
It is saved as a PDF-if you are interested in getting a word document let me know. :0)
One of my little tadpole’s parent read them the
question…”how many frogs can you count in our
classroom” and she came over to me and
said “Teacher…REALLY!”
If you checked out my teaching pal’s blog,
you will see the first homework assignment that we
have already given!
Finally, our “Furry Friend”-Mrs. Todisman is getting
her blog and room up and running, so hop on over
and wish her a great year too!
