I really enjoyed this post! Even though spelling and grammar are big pet peeves of mine, I think it is important for children to learn to be themselves in writing and have confidence before spelling is important. As they become better readers, it will be something they notice on their own.
Do you remember the name of your kindergarten teacher? I do, mine. Her name was Mrs White. And I remember thinking she must be some older relation of Walt Disney’s Snow White, because she had the same bright blue eyes, short dark hair, red lips and fair skin. I don’t remember much about what we […]
It was odd not putting #blogaday and the number of posts!
I came up with a fun activity for the weather unit, and it turned out so well:) We made rain with beads and glitter glue – I put them on the wall today after drying, and only a few beads fell off!
There are some changes arriving soon with management and my classroom, but I really feel like things are coming together.
One more day! 😮 Went by so fast!
This post was very moving! I liked how it made me reflect on my every day life and what I try to live by. I definitely have “one word,” positivity. I always try to go to bed happy by not letting sorrows or stresses come home with me. I also let go of things that people would probably keep with them. I feel it isn’t worth it to let anything affect the way I look at my world: I am me and how I live it should be satisfying and enjoyable!
This month’s unit is Sky and Weather, which at first, I thought was difficult to find activities because I was focusing on the sky and not the weather – today during naptime, I started thinking of fun ideas related to weather (like making wind chimes, rain with beads, and rainmakers). I’m excited to have the children create these!
Since my apartment is all done with decorating, I thought I would find another hobby to entertain myself – I looked up a bunch of options and am considering knitting, adult coloring, scrapbooking, origami, and painting 🙂 For now I’m going to pick up scrapbooking of my journey at Kindercare and then coloring or knitting (havent decided yet!)
FOUR MORE DAYS! 😮
Today I experienced my first somewhat snow day – we weren’t able to drive in the morning due to ice on the road so we came in the afternoon. There were very few teachers, and we sent most of the ones who were in rooms home. It was an interesting day! Driving back was rough though because the parking lot had iced over but I lived through my first “snow day” with school. We’ll see how the rest of the week goes with the icy roads!
This weekend, I picked up some new furniture units from IKEA for my apartment – now anyone who knows IKEA is aware that they make you assemble everything yourself.. I was determined to get it done on my own! Once I started though, I realized what a long process it was going to be 😮 They have so many bits and pieces when it could really be only a few, but after quite a few hours for each unit and sore arms, I can say that I put together a bookshelf, TV stand, and sidetable 🙂
ONLY 6 POSTS TO GO!
With the economy the way it is and my income, I am used to mostly buying things during sales or simply cheaper clothes. But today, I was looking for household decor and I had gift cards from Christmas – I got many different things and only spent a bit of my own money!
I did 2 today because it was so busy that I missed the time before it was the next day!
