As you know, we are participating in the Primary Perspective's Valentine Exchange! I decided we would keep track of each state from which we receive a card. Maybe you would like to download this just so that you can have a map with cute font!!! (I couldn't find one anywhere, so I had to make one!) I also made another sheet where the students can write down the state, grade level, and number of students in the class.... we've gotten 2 cards so far!!! Can't wait for the rest!

Happy Friday! I know this is a little late- but I've been trying to figure out how to embed documents into my blog. I hope you all will be able to use this! After I looked through my file, I realized I didn't have a CUTE candy heart graph- and I needed one, for sure!!!

The children have worked hard on their cards- it's been a week-long process!
The theme is CUPCAKES! We brainstormed fun crafts to do and decided on using coffee filters- have you ever done this?
I encourage my students to color in the entire area leaving no white spots, then we spray with water and leave them to dry. They come out looking sort of tie-dyed! The top and bottom of the cupcake were two different pieces that I cut from a normal coffee filter.
We worked in small groups to come up with things we love about our school and things we love to learn about! (I know 'centers' doesn't really make sense ... if you only understood how much my students LOVE 9:00!)
Thanks, Brooke, for such an awesome idea! We can't wait to start receiving mail! :)

Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a teacher?
A: I think being a secretary would be fun! I hate paperwork, but I love it at the same time! Weird!
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Being a mommy, making games for my classroom, researching new ideas and always trying to be a better teacher, and I can't forget 'shopping'!!!!!
Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: Definitely a teacher!
Q: What are your guilty pleasures?
A: Sweeeeeet Tea! For the first time the other day, I actually went through a McDonald's Drive Thru for ONLY a sweet tea.... that's when I realized it was a guilty pleasure!
Q: What is your biggest fear?!
A: Losing loved ones....
Q: When you’re on vacation, where do you like to go?

Q: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
A: Trust in the Lord!
Q: What do you value most in others?
A: Positive Attitudes and Honesty. I also REALLY love to see hard-work and dedication in my school. It's hard to want to help people who don't try to help themselves!
Q: If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass down to your kids, what would it be?
A: I have to agree with Cara on this one and say my sense of humor! I love to laugh, so it would be great to have someone around here doing funny things for my entertainment!
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world….living or dead…who would it be?
A: I would have to say all of my friends and family who have passed away- I have a hard time letting go- and I have learned this year after a young friend's sudden death that it takes a LOT of time to ease the pain... I just want to have one more conversation with everyone!
