Sick on Sunday

I haven't been blogging as much as I would like because life has been busy. I know that's not a great excuse but it's true.  Well, I woke up this morning to a not so wonderful surprise--a sore throat! There's very few things in this world I hate but a sore throat is definitely one of them. Having a sore throat and teaching through it is just awful, don't you teachers out there agree?

Okay enough complaining because this is going to be a quick post since I'm not feeling to well.  I had the kids write their high frequency words on my windows and they had a blast! I turned it into a Daily 5 word work station for the kiddos. Those window markers are wonderful! It's hard to see but here are a couple of pictures.

                                     Cute right? :)

We also leard the oi, oy diphthongs and I snapped a picture of the poster that was somewhat inspired by The First Grade Parade.

This past Wednesday was my birthday and the wonderful parents at my school through me a surprise birthday party.  Seriously, how wonderful are they?  I didn't get any pictures of the event but I did get a beautiful vase, Pinterest inspired of course! One of my little girls love it, but who can blame her? Take a look
That same day we got a Mimio Teach. It's not a NowBoard, but I love it anyway!! The kids are super excited as well! Now I can do all those Smart Board activities like everyone else. :)

Finally, one of my first graders won a poster contest for our Diocese and he got second place. It was really an honor for him an his family.

Cute right? I am one proud teacher!!

Well, it's about time I start getting ready for tomorrow. Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday!

Pin It!


  1. Love the vase! Hope your throat is feeling better--sore throat and no voice is also not fun.
