My first award!

Well I have tons to talk about but if you don’t have time just read #1 (hopefully it will provide your daily entertainment!)

1. Kid-ism – my students have come up with some dandies (spelling?) this week!  I use this term for those things the kids write/say that I find pretty fun.  You have to find some laughter in the day, right?!  Check out these winners:

I had some heels for P/T conferences sitting by my bag.  A student spots them, “What are those for?” 
I said, “Later.”  She responded, “For the book fair?”  
Yes, that’s where I always wear my heels πŸ˜‰  
“Do you like my headband?”  “Yes.”  Student responded, “I found it on the street” 
2. My first award – WHOA!!! I was so excited!!! My students nominated me for Character trait of the month- responsible!  They had to write a letter and everything!! It just melted my heart- that they would do something like that for me πŸ™‚  
Take a look: 
My first teaching award- SWEET!!
3. P/T Conferences
Had the first round of these and halfway done!  Interesting first experience as meeting parents always is!  I think collaborating for the benefit of the student and getting on the same page is always good!

    Congrats on the award! After learning about Christopher Columbus, one of my students told me that he "hopes to visit America someday." I didn't have the heart to tell him that he's been here all along! They definitely make you laugh, don't they?
