Flashback to that time I spilled an entire of water on my ummm….JUST before my class of 6th grade boys walked in. 😜Guess what? They didn’t notice 🙈 If you hang out with middle school boys, this may not surprise you so much 😂

A pretty easy way to encourage a love for reading in your children is by setting an example – let them witness your own reading habits.
What are you reading now? Share what you’re currently exploring below. I’m challenging myself by reading about a historical period I’ve never studied before. 📚

Merry Christmas 🎄 from our family to yours. 🤫
👯The kids on the left are my godkids. Their momma died in 2020 My family and I moved to SC to be close to the kids and their family. BUT here’s the secret part. Ever since the shorter ones were babies…when I take the 4 of them out together ALL BY MYSELF, I imagine that people THINK I have 2 sets of twins…and that THOSE people must be VERY impressed with me. And that makes me feel good. EVERY TIME. I reminded them about this as I walked into with two 14 year olds and two 11 year olds—-and encouraged them to stop looking so happy to be together, because I WANT PEOPLE TO THINK THEY ARE SIBLINGS.

This is a funny story, but a good illustration of Just. How. Challenging. It is to learn to read and to understand what we read.

Today I read a short piece about a cattle drive with a few 6th graders.
👩‍🏫”What’s the setting?”
👦🏻”A forest 🌳 “
👩‍🏫 “How are the cattle going to get through the trees 🌳?”
👦🏻”I don’t know what a cattle is.”
👩‍🏫”Ah! They are cows 🐄”
👦🏻 “Hmmmm. Well, how are the cows going to get in the car 🚘?”🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️
❓Cattle = plural
❓Cattle are cows 🐄🐄🐄🐄🐄
❓This “drive” does not mean what you think it does.
📖📖📖📖📖📖This young man could decode the words, but he had no understanding of what was communicated.

1. I did 2 workouts today. 2. The boy jogged a mile after a few months off. He gets into spurts of running. 3. Thank goodness for the BeachCruiser and a Dog-O who bikes 🐶 🚴

What I want to do with all of the kids 🥰 But Ivan still loves it when I snuggle him, so he gets lots of snuggles. 😂I’m laughing, not crying 😭 His big brother provided light 💡 for the picture with his lightsaber and that made me laugh a lot.

I love it. Have you read it? This is perfect for your preschool-1st graders (or others who like a silly story). Lots of AT rhymes. But mostly it’s funny.

💡Now here’s a little lesson to go with the sculptures 😜The kids and I looked at this silly dog, then brainstormed words we could use when writing a paragraph about him. After they crafted their paragraphs, we revised and tidied them up a bit. To wrap it up-A SCULPTING COMPETITION! Vote for your favorite below.

This is funny-but there’s also a teachable moment here. Sometimes parents get overwhelmed with all the THINGS with reading. One thing they ask me, “But WHAT should they read?” That’s a big question and there are lots of answers. ONE answer: READ ANYTHING! I encourage my students to read out loud for at least 5 minutes each day. Have them read you the cereal box 🥣 Reading is GOOD. Even reading the cereal box 📦

Before they can form letters, they need to practice forming lines. Use these cute worksheets to practice their first lines.

A Thanksgiving writing brainstorm and scaffolded paragraph writing. This is probably appropriate for grades 2+. The more capable the writer, the less of the scaffolding you'll need from page 2. If you'd like a copy as a PDF please just comment below and I can send it to you.
