Hi Friends! I have been absent from the world for the past week or so. I've had some pretty scary health issues pop up that literally stopped me in my tracks. For the first time in a week I can actually look at the computer screen without being dizzy, but not for too long yet...I won't go into a lot of details, but hopefully it's something I will be over very soon! I hate not being able to get up and go to work & church and pretty much being waited on hand and foot...not cool! I am, however, SO thankful for the many many blessings God continues to give me daily. I just don't see how people live without Him. My family changed their daily lives to make things easy on me; my parents have "adopted" Lexy, letting her spend the night every single night and getting her to and from school; my in-laws who take care of our other babies have been staying at our house, & my sweet hubby has taken time off from his "other love" baseball, so he could take care of me at nights! God has blessed my family beyond measure and for that I am just SO thankful!
I just wanted you all to know I haven't abandoned by e-mail, blog, or FB permanently, but just until I can get over this "stuff".
I had some Really Fun St. Patrick's Day Centers ready and was hoping to have that up and posted for you all, BUT God had other plans. Also, I was right in the middle of transportation centers, but wasn't able to get that finished either. Boo! I will get them done at some point. Aaaannnd...I've had tons of e-mails about spring, plants, farm, & zoo...I HOPE to get to it all, but, y'all...I just don't know. It kills me not to have it out there, but TIME! AH!
There! Thanks for letting me rant...And, I couldn't NOT post a single picture with my post. I have no school related pictures, but here is my precious baby boy at 4 months. We did 5 month pics today so this is a *tad* old, but still so sweet!
First, let me share with you my baby girl reading to my class! Ah! My kids loved the fact that our guest reader was the same age as they are! She did so good...one proud mommy!
Okay, so our reading coach is so great! She has just opened a TPT store...you should definitely go follow her HERE because she'll be adding some great things...I just know it.
We read her little book today and did the Reading Conga Line she suggests!
Y'all, they LOVED it! Begged to do it over and over!
Last, here are a few of our Silly Centers from this week. You can check them out for yourself HERE.
We are still practicing syllables. I had questioned on my FB page about you guys teach this because it becomes so confusing for my kids once they are able to hear individual sounds in words. But, my friend Rebecca Stone suggested having students put their hand under their chin and each time their chin drops they count the syllables. Whoa...this helped so much so Thank You Rebecca for sharing!
