Celebrate Good Times, Come On! 5/17
Each Saturday Ruth Ayres invites us to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week. Looking for celebrations has certainly improved my outlook on my week. For that, I am certainly grateful to Ruth and to all of you who choose to celebrate with me.
Celebration #1 - My students wrote and illustrated a book made of prepositional phrases. We use Rosie's Walk by Pat Hutchins as a mentor text. As a way to share our learning, we read these books with our kindergarten students because most of the prepositions are their sight words. My kids are always impressed by their reading skills. This is collaboration at its best!
Celebration #2 - Wednesday night while I was on Twitter chatting away, I heard my husband and two children laughing at "Looney Tunes" cartoons in the living room...my children are 21 and 17! That makes me smile!
Celebration #3 - Yesterday was one of my students' last day. It is never easy when students move on to the next grade, but I know I will get to see them next year. It is another thing when they move two states away, and I know our paths will probably never cross again. This morning when I woke up, I checked my email, and there was a notification from Kidblog. It was from Zach telling about his arrival into Memphis and all about the hotel he will be staying in while they search for a house. I was thrilled that he shared this with us on the class blog. Celebrating connections!
Have a wonderful week and I hope you find many things to celebrate!
