Marvelous Monday

Can I just say YAY for good Mondays! =) Today was awesome-- kids were great (overall), got a lot done, **ALMOST** done testing, kick boxed, and had a good Math monday meeting. <-- rare

So, just a quick post and then I will stop procrastinating on what I need to do... My class this year is special. I love me some low babies and the Lord placed A LOT of them in my lap this year. I have 15 non-readers. To some of you that might not be a big deal, but I am spoiled and the population I work with are usually relatively on top of it. This year, not so much. I am trying to feel half glass full here, and think to myself-- a) REAL Kindergarten! b) more growth and c) I love the reward that comes from all this.

One thing I've noticed is the coloring. HOLY MOLY! We have aliens, monsters and purple people eaters when we do self portraits! So I whipped up this little page for my kiddos and we did a step-by-step how to draw a self portrait. (yes.. we needed step-by-step) They turned out pretty cute AND have helped a lot!

I will update this with a FREE download of this sheet when I have a second at school since I don't have it on this computer! oopsies!

Laminator for my house?! YES, please!

OK, so I know it's been forever and a day since I've posted, and I was planning on getting on here and sharing what we've been up to a little later, however I stumbled upon an AWESOME giveaway! Hop on over the the wonderful Rowdy in Room 300 so you can enter to win a LAMINATOR for your house! Im totally jealous of all you teachers that already have this at home, I would love, love, love to have one of my own! =)

That's all I've got for now, I am heading up to school to work for a bit and will share some of what's been going on a little later. I hope everyone is relaxing and enjoying their weekend! =)
