As most of you know I'm a believer and my FAITH is very important to me. I had to snap a photo of my niece and nephew after church. It took about 10 times because my nephew is just like my brother. (Not a fan of the camera LOL) After church we went to a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. I dreaded it because that place makes me feel claustrophobic. Hey what we do for those we love. The kids enjoyed it and to me that's all that counts. Two out of three took a photo with Chuck E. My older nephew isn't fond of photos with real-life stuffed animals.
A dear friend of mine asked me to create this canvas for her son who is graduating in May. She was inspired by Pinterest. There was NO way I turning her down. This is one of my favorite things to do and that's create. It brought tears to my eyes as I was creating this work of art because my dear friend is such an AWESOME mother and friend. She LOVES her children so much and I know she's proud! He's going to be an Aggie soon!!
You all know that I'm a HUGE fan of creating anchor charts in my classroom. I think their an EXCELLENT visual and resource for teachers and students. My Firsties LOVE when Miss May creates an anchor chart. The non-fiction and fiction were created for someone. (I have these up already in my room) The story problem routine was created because my students refer to this all the time when solving story problems.
So awhile back my principal asked if she and another teacher could observe my classroom management during Daily 5. Of course, I said because I can NEVER tell my principal NO. LOL! Well my Firsties and I were observed yesterday and they rocked it! Made Miss May one proud teacher. They make me fabulous they really do.
I had to post a screen shot of me getting a reply back from The "Queen" of Teachers Pay Teachers herself. The sweet Deanna Jump. Now lets be honest here I have experienced some bloggers who have just turned me off. I won't mention and will never mention a name because that's not how I roll. However this brought the BIGGEST Kool-Aid smile to my face last night. Ya'll this amazing woman is a M I L L I O N A I R E! She could be rude, mean, and nose up in the air but she is the EXACT opposite. I mean I know it has to be hard to try and respond to people but she does. Mrs. Jump gives excellent tips, advice, and freebies on a regular. However, I do buy a lot of her stuff because it's worth every penny. She reminds me of Erica Bohrer and Sara Cooley (humble, sweet, and down to earth) LOVE IT!!! Mrs. Jump thank you for the smile you brought on my face. You don't have to ever respond to me again, this has done it for me. You just don't know how A W E S O M E you are. Maybe you do! However, just THANK YOU for being such a HUGE inspiration to me. ((BIG HUGS))
That's all folks! Hope you have a ROCKIN' WEEKEND!
