Mini me

So I come home, put down my teacher bag, and start helping with dinner. The next thing I know, I turn around to see Esli reading our research "all about" books and wearing my teacher ID. Aye yi yi...

She keeps me laughing!

Hello, June!

Time is FLYING!!! I'm soaking in every single day with these fun kiddos!

Teeth are falling out left and right around here! These kids are keeping the Tooth Fairy busy!!!

When I'm doing assessments... These students run their own reading groups...LOVE IT!

We are geologists!!! Studying rocks is so much fun! Ask your child what happens when you rub rocks together, or when you put them in water...

Do you know any volcanic rocks?! These students do...

The Spring Fling was a success! It was awesome to see so many familiar faces on Saturday. The face painting stand was very popular! 

And we kicked off spirit week yesterday with Crazy Hat Day! 

Esli stayed very busy last weekend... Going to a music festival and a parade at Daddy's work! 

Esli was ready for nap time!

These kiddos are making my heart smile so big every single day. They are really turning into second graders right in front of my eyes! I'm one proud teacher! 
I had some helpers write the morning message... I don't think I'm needed anymore ;)
Great handwriting, Ethan!!!
