gratitudes – day 5

My friend Ben (@bdicksonnv) just called me out for blogging. He did it in a kind way. But I took it as a kick in the pants, which is perfect because I have some pretty cute pictures to share.


Yesterday was Pajama Day. And a super fun introduction to the at family. Thinking about it for a bit, I knew I wanted the class to see kid-made words. I just didn’t expect that they’d be doing it in their super cute pjs!


We also broke out the white boards. I know what a valuable tool they are but sometimes the management overwhelms me. Yesterday Ms. Shari and I each took a small group and it was magical. Lots of sight words. Some direct handwriting instruction. More pajama time.



Who knew the rake that Mr. Jimmy left out accidentally would be such a hit. Honestly, the sneakers in the bottom of the picture belong to 2 boys who, as I was taking the picture, were begging Larkin to please share the raking duties with them.

Sadly, I can’t remember who I got the pointer pups from, but I really appreciate downloading them for free and my kids had so much fun using them as helpers to remember to point to each word as they read them. Did I mention that today was Disney/Marvel day?

Life on the home front is a bit rocky these days but I am grateful for Spirit Week at school when I get to look around the classroom and see penguin and shark pjs sitting next to each other and Spiderman and Woody helping each other read sight word phrases!
