I think today is Wednesday...

but to be completely honest, I am not sure half of the time! I hate 4 day weeks.

I know, I know. I should love them!

But when we have 4 day weeks, I get so confused as to what day it is. And to top it off, my watch battery died, so really, I am about at lost as one can get. 

Mississippi is not completely ready for Spring (apparently) because today the weather was rainy and 50 degrees after a glorious 75 and sunny yesterday. Needless to say, no recess. Oh, and the counselor was at a meeting today at County Office, and my class had counseling, so no specials class either.

Have I mentioned that I just returned from maternity leave...YESTERDAY.

So, to help pass the time (of which I was completely oblivious to) we wrote letters to my maternity sub thanking her for working with my class while I was gone. 


Were they perfect? Of course not. But I am sure she will love them!


Our writing standard this week was composing a friendly letter. BAM. Finished. Done. Thanks.

Bring on Thursday!!

My First Day Back, April Currently, and a Freebie :)

So, after 10 glorious weeks with my sweet Lila Kate, I ditched my lounge clothes, put on some make-up and name badge, and returned to my 21 kinders. My first thoughts when I walked in my room - "What's that smell?" then "Where is my coffee?", and lastly, "Why am I already sweating??"

Welcome to my world. 

The smell - the jellybeans I had forgotten I had stuffed in my bag last night.
My coffee - in my hand :)
Sweating - because apparently it's my body's new thing since becoming a mother. 

I will say, my day was not bad at all!! I was sorta preparing myself this past weekend for some craziness, but my kids were super sweet and did all of their work without complaint. And I must say that my sub had done a great job with them, because they were reading beautifully for the 142nd day of school!

This week we are working on /u/ - medial. So I whipped up this little activity as a can do for my early finishers at one of my centers. Please take if you want/need it!

And.. here is my April Currently.
