Exciting Things Coming!

The end of October brings with it an exciting feeling for me.  November and December are two of the best months in school, in my opinion.  We have multiple units that are my favorites to teach, I share some of the best read alouds of the year (again, my person opinion), and the excitement of the fall/winter holidays is everywhere.  Because of all of this, I get a needed 2nd-quarter energy boost.  So join me as we dive into fractions/decimals, fiction stories, The Secret of Zoom, Fig Pudding, Ancient West Africa and inferring in poetry!  Along the way we’ll ride on a magic carpet with Alladin (thanks to the Nipher musical next week); take a few days off for Thanksgiving; talk about the science fair and make plans for the projects to start in January; drink some cocoa together on cold days and then eventually celebrate the season at our Winter Party at the end of the quarter.  I don’t know about you, but I am ready!  Happy Fall!

  1. Whew! Bring it on! I agree, I love this time of the school year. There is something about the change in the weather that makes it feel cozier in the building and you really feel things settle into a nice routine. Should I knock on wood?

    • Yeah, I love it when it’s snowing outside wrapped in 5 blankets with a cup of hot chocolate in my hands admiring how lucky I am to have this stuff . The holiday season always makes me think like that , and feel all warn inside

      • Remember how I was in Chicago this weekend? The weather there was totally what I was talking about when I was writing that post–cold and misty and windy. Oh, and cloudy, too. Last night I just wanted to cuddle on my couch with a blanket and some cocoa! SO EXCITED for the holidays! And by the way, one year in my classroom when we read Who’s Stealing the 12 Days of Christmas?, we had “blanket” day, and everyone curled up all cozy-like while we were reading. It was great! And we had hot chocolate one time, too, because Mr. Stone drinks it with Alex and Yasmin in the story. I see possibilities, here, what do you think?

  2. I love the fall season too, but I wonder if winning a World Series championship has anything to do with that?…

    Thank you for writing the Blog and keeping us all up to date on what’s happening in your classroom. It feels like a little window into the daily routine, and the curriculum certainly sounds educational, engaging, and interesting. It’s easy to see why our kids are excited about learning!

    Keep up the great work!
