About Me

My photo
I graduated from the University of Cincinnati in June 2009. I began my wonderful career teaching first grade shortly thereafter, in August 2009. In June 2016, I completed my Masters with the focus in Reading grades K-6th grade. This will be my seventh year utilizing a blog and hope that it will provide parents with another avenue to view their child's accomplishments throughout the school year.

Our Snowy Week Off

Since we didn't have any class this past week, I asked parents to send me a photo of what their child was up to on one of these snowy, cold days.  Thanks so much to those of you who were able to respond!  Here are a few photos from our friends:
Reading the Day Away
 Playing in the Sand
Visiting the National Air Force Museum 
Chopping Up Some Healthy Goodness
 Nice Chair 
 Snow-time Fun
 Now that looks comfy!
 Conquering the Snow
I'm glad I got to the Library before this latest snowfall! :)

Thanks again for sending me your photos!
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Making 10

We had another great week in room 105!  As I looked through the photos I took this past week, a huge focus for us was playing various games to make 10.  Here are some photos from our past week:

We were excited about it. :)
