Where you at?


I’ve been gone for a hot minute.

Only 41 days until the big day!
I’m so excited and for the most part very ready.
I have to get my dress altered and find some shoes for Mr. Roboto…
but other than that, I think we are ready!

Time is going to fly by…and I might not do a great job of posting regularly, but I promise to try.

I have finally implemented my small groups using my SMALL binders!

The kids are loving them.  I’m loving the organization.

Can I just say Jan Richardson is a genius!  Her book really helped me have effective small group time.  I am still having 15-20 minute small group sessions..which is too long in my opinion…but I think as I get better with skill practice, I can improve my time.

How do you run small group sessions?
Do you have a check list of skill or things to cover?
I’d love to hear about what you do.

Halloween is right around the corner…I’m so excited! It’s one of my favorite holidays.
This year, I’m going as …

The Bride of Frankenstein!

With a tutu and veil.  I’m hoping it will come out exactly how I’m envisioning.

My school does a Halloween parade.  The whole school walks around the bus loop a couple of times as parents cheer and take pictures. It’s so much fun.  I’ll be sure to post pictures.

What will you be for Halloween?

Post a comment below and I’ll choose a winner to receive my Halloween Vocabulary packet or Pumpkin Vocabulary packet…which will be posted tonight!  Here are a few pictures:

    You were missed! But totally understandable since you are getting ready for your wedding. For Halloween I am going to be a spider since my daughter will be Little Miss Muffet.

    We aren't allowed to dress up at school, so I won't be anything. Your pumpkin vocabulary packet looks awesome. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
