Zoo Animals

I am starting to get very excited about our trip to the zoo.  It is one of my favorite days of the year.  I have two special animals that I love to check on each time I go.  I love to watch the hippos swim and I love to watch the gorillas play with each other.  What are you looking forward to seeing at the zoo?

Summer weather

Wow!  What an amazing May we have had.  My plum tree is in bloom and smells wonderful.  We have already taken out our summer clothes and packed away our winter clothes.  I am looking forward to doing many things this summer.  What is something you are looking forward to doing this summer?

Hello Crickets!  Welcome back after a nice long winter break.  Today you got to write about all of the things that you did over vacation, but I was wondering was there anything that you wanted to do but didn't get to do?  I know that I wanted to go see the movie Jack the Giant Slayer but couldn't fit that into my schedule.  I also wanted to start running over break, but the weather got in the way.  What was something that you wanted to do but didn't?

We earned a feather!!

Congratulations Crickets!  We have earned our third feather for the year.  I am so proud of you.  I love it when our classroom is a respectful and responsible place.  I am asking you to blog about what you would like to do the celebrate.  We will decide together tomorrow.  Also, I am very please to tell you that our class has won the reading challenge!  We will be served ice cream by a teacher from the 4th grade classroom next week.

Thanksgiving is around the corner and I am looking forward to a break from school.  I have plans to visit with family, play games with my children, and do some crafting.  What do you plan to do over vacation?

Winter is coming!

We saw our first snowflakes this week and we took out our hats and mittens out of storage.  I have started eating all of my favorite winter foods and am drinking lots of tea and hot chocolate.  I love to snuggle up and read and watch my favorite movies when it is chilly outside!  What do you like to do best when it is chilly?

Halloween is just around the corner!

Well crickets, Halloween is 7 days away!  I love fall and everything that goes with it.  I love apple picking, hiking in the woods and kicking the leaves, jumping in leave piles, carving pumpkins, dressing up in costumes, and yes, I love to trick or treat and eating sweets.  I was wondering what your favorite Halloween tradition was.  What do you look forward to doing each Halloween?
