Brain Break MUST

Happy Saturday!
With my class this year I really need to incorporate quick brain breaks.
I have several students who have sensory input needs and getting up and moving is a MUST.
 This PB & J No Crust song! is sure a hit!


Even if you do like crust on your PB & J you'll still have this song bobbing through your head!

Dog Gone It

Harley provided some fun entertainment for me this weekend. He was spooked by a deflated balloon floating waywardly in my planters.


He was on alert, barking and not quite sure of the mystery mylar flower balloon.

Getting Acquainted with my New Class

I just wrapped up my first week of school, including my Back to School information night.
The lazy days of summer are already a blur and I'm exhausted.
As I sat down to read my student's "Get to Know You" sheets I got a chuckle or two.
Here are some thoughts from some of them.


The prompt was: One thing you should know about me is...

One thing you should know about me is I have bling.

One thing you should know about me is I do not like work.

One thing you should know about me is I am not always fair.


Another prompt:  My least favorite subject is ....

My least favorite subject is homework because it wastes your time.

It's the day before the first day of school for me and I've got a running list of a million things to do.
I'm also thinking ahead for later when conferences with parents will occur.
