I Survived! & We got to meet Glenn Robinson!

The year has begun and I can breath a little easier. Even though there are 34 students in my class for math the help of two aides makes it a bit easier. It also helps that my kiddos are GREAT! I couldn't have asked for a better bunch of third graders to work with.

We had a special visitor join us last week as a Mystery Reader! Glenn Robinson, NBA Timberwolves player, visited our school and read to our kiddos! How cool is that! It just so happens that one of my coworker's son is best friends with him and has been since they were little. I'd say we got pretty lucky!

Do you have a Mystery Reader Program? My kids LOVE it when a guest comes in to read to them! Share with us in the comments how you incorporate special guests into your curriculum!

A New School Year!

Hello Friends! I am embarrassed that it has almost been a year since my last post! Boy can time get away from you when life gets busy!

This school year my goal is to post at least once a week and keep up with blogging! Wish me luck!

School starts in one week! Are you ready to go back? This is the time of year I get excited to meet my new students and start the year off right! As you may know I teach third grade high ability in Northwest Indiana. This will be my third year teaching high ability and my seventh year teaching overall! I will have 26 students in my class full time and an additional 8 students who will come in during math! Yep you read that right! I will have 34 students for math. I am not exactly sure how that is going to work out yet so stay tuned to see what tricks and tips I have up my sleeve to reach all 34 of those students!

I hope you have a great school year and I look forward to staying connected this year!
