Almost there!

2 Days till my students are on Summer Vacation!! I think they are soo ready to be done! Out of my class of 14, which is already really small, I had 8 today! It was soo quiet!! There was 4 boys and 4 girls, so we did some friendly competition, like who could clean up their table the fastest the boys or girls. It was so cute to watch them to work. I was really blessed in my first year for the little lovebugs in my classroom. Don't get me wrong they gave me so much attitude throughout the year, but in the end of the day they would always give me a hug goodbye. Teaching in the area I teach in my students don't always have it easy, but they try so hard and are so excited to learn. We did writing today on what they want to learn in 3rd grade, and bless their hearts I had a few write division, and even one write physics. I have no idea where that idea came from, but more power to him! Another section of the writing was "What will my 3rd grade teacher think of me.." Most of them wrote funny, nice, smart, but I did have one of the boys wrote that she will think he is a star. It was SOOOO precious!

One of the days last week, we had a bubbles and chalk party! It was soo much fun! I have never seen my kids so into bubbles! It was like they had never played with them before! I just loved watching their faces light up, and it was adorable watching them chase the bubbles! Below is a couple of pictures of them having a BLAST!

WOW Look I caught one!! :)

Caught it as he was blowing it! They thought it was the coolest picture ever!!

Catch the bubble game!!

Well hopefully I will get some of my materials posted soon! Have a great week!

The Final Countdown!

I have 7 days left in my first year of teaching!! I can't believe it! This year has been the funnest, hardest, craziest, silliest, and loving year of my life. I teach at a charter school in a rougher area, but the students are so eager to learn. Lucky, I have the most amazing co-teacher that anyone can ask for. She makes my life a million times easier.

Back to 7 days left, O MY GOODNESS they are jam packed! Tomorrow we have a field trip, friday cleaning the classroom, Saturday is the kick off the summer festival at my school, and Wednesday is the last day and our field day! I am ready to sit down and rest, but I am going to keep on chugging!!!

I decided to start a blog, because I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE the ones I read and I get soooo many wonderful ideas from them, and I HOPE people can get ideas from me. I am so into creating my own things. This year halfway through I ditched my math curriculum and did my own thing. It worked out and my students I believe are smarter for it! Eventually I will be setting up a store and giving away freebies, and all that fun stuff! I just want to share because that is what teaching is all about!

If anyone has ideas for a good blog designer let me know! I want to get this thing jazzed up! Also, how to I post things on here. I am trying to figure it out, so HELP! :) haha

Well I will post pictures of my classroom and my countdown to summer and everythingg! This summer I hope to share all about everything and link up with ours! I am so excited to be blogging!
