Fire Prevention Week

Our class picture of 1st nine week honor roll students! Keep up the great work.

 This was the first year that our school held a 5K walk/run to benefit Autism research. The children in the school raised over 1,500 to donate. Our class had a great time!

We were lucky enough to have a set of grandparents read aloud to our classroom! They even brought a guest with them and performed like a ventriloquist!

Exploring with base ten blocks. Check out the Lincoln Memorial! How creative!

Our class the 1st day of school 2012.

Gotta Start Somewhere....

Teaching is something that I am very passionate about, as well as golfing, shopping, technology, children's books, and now blogging. The truth is, I really enjoy a lot of things and like to combine my interests if ever possible. I started a class website a few years ago on shutterfly.com. It was a really great way to build a quick and easy site showing parents what we were doing each week. Templates were already in place for me to put events on a calendar, upload photos, documents, and videos. Then, a few months ago I came across several teacher blogs on this site. They were filled with student activities, and teacher ideas while still showing the teacher's personality and standing out. I enjoyed searching the sites so much that I thought I would finally give it a try. Shutterfly.com has been really good to me, however, I think its time to give this a go. Hopefully, this site will not only serve my students' parents, but also many teachers who can take just as many great ideas from me, as I have learned from them.
