Friday's News


We hope everyone has had a great week.  

Here's what we have been up to...

Last week we went to visit my parents in Florida.  We managed to get a place on the beach and it felt like heaven.  It was a great way to get some much needed R and R.  

 I mean seriously, who couldn't handle this...

Ah yes, then it was back to reality.  At school our students are working on handwriting.  Is it in the curriculum? No.  Do I think it's an important skill for them to learn? Yes.  
I have to say they are really enjoying it.  I have been surprised by how eager my boys are to practice their cursive writing.  

Long before march break started, we began watching The Bee movie.  We finally finished it yesterday.  We tied it into media literacy by having students complete these review posters on the movie.  I really enjoyed reading what they felt was the message of the movie.  Their answers were so different, and interesting to read. 

And lastly, I received the coolest mug every from my husband and daughter.  When it's cold its all black with a sleeping face.  When the mug gets filled with a warm drink, it turns white with an awake face.  For those of you who know me and know my love of coffee and unique mugs, this was the best gift ever.
