I Love Teaching

You know, I really enjoy teaching.  I loved it when I was able to homeschool my boys. I've always enjoyed teaching theatre and now I'm having fun with 2nd grade.  It's nice to have the time to do cool things for my students.

I'm so excited about this week.  On Monday, in Bible we are learning about the Moses leading the Hebrews in the desert.  If I get it made, I plan to serve the kids "manna" while teaching.  In Social Studies, we are learning about how cloth is made and I'm in the process of making cardboard looms for each of my kids so they can learn to weave.  On Tuesday, I have a 2 very special guests coming, Srgt.  Bindseil and his K-9 partner, Ringo.  (We are studying mammals in Science.)  Also, on Tuesday, we are learning how to dye cloth so we are making tye-die t-shirts.  On Friday, I already have a quiz made up on-line for the kids to take that will be automatically graded and entered into my grade book.  I hope the kids have as much fun this week as I will. 

Now, Wednesday will be an exciting day as well.  However, I will not be at school.  I am taking the day off to help Marshall with his Eagle Project for Boy Scouts.  He will be presenting his Eagle Project to the Central Texas Constables and Justice of the Peace Association and leading some other Scouts to help present a flag ceremony at the meeting. 

Life is good.

Classroom Helpers

I just finished this chart for classroom helpers after two weeks of school.  Hopefully this will make things run a little smoother.
