I have been fortunate to be off for 3 weeks, I enjoyed my family, the holidays, and just relaxing all day. I made a promise not to do any school work, and I kept it!!!!! surprisingly. However it is time for me to create my statiions for next week and all my winter theme lessons. I love teaching first grade, because of all the fantastic read alouds, and cute projects that the kids get really excited about. I miss my students now (3 weeks is perfect). Well wishing all my fellow teachers and blog buddies a Happy New Year!!!!!!!
