I've been away too long!

In an effort to keep my kiddos learning over their very long summer, (no complaints here for a longer summer vacation) I am linking up my blog with my school website so my students can come here to keep in touch- and most importantly keep learning!

Since my last post, we've covered TONS of content, had an amazing Spring Break practiced On-Demand writing till it was running out our ears, and finally we made it through the first ever new testing for the state of Kentucky using the new Common Core Standards- The KPREP!







In addition to all of that, on a personal note, I've found out that I will no longer have a job for next year. This is okay. I took the 5th grade position mid-year, and I'm excited to have the opportunity to work with these 37 amazing kids! I'm again on the job hunt...No rest for the weary!

Hubby and son are both doing well. Aaron is ready to head for the 3rd grade and I'm thrilled to report he is well above grade level, AND he is going to have the same teacher again next school year. Yay for looping! :)

First up- who has exciting plans for summer? Post about what you plan to do over the summer months! Can’t wait to hear about your plans!

      Have a blast! Be careful camping, and don't waste too much of your summer snoozing! I hope you continue working on your animations- you are very talented when it comes to items like that!

      Nothing is better for one soul than an honest days work! Don't work too hard, make sure to take a few days of your summer to just be a "kid." Stay safe!
