A cautionary tale... Do not let your young students play with you paint-card-making-word sets without supervision. You may think (incorrectly) that they Will keep the sets together. They won't, and before you know it a little sweetie will bring you the uck family with the onsets for the at family, and will point out the f on that card and inform you that there is a "bad word".
It's a very sad day for teachers in WI. I feel utterly demoralized. Its a good thing we are made of stronger stuff than bad politics. A good teacher is a good teacher, no matter who makes the rules.
My hubs is telling me about Venus and how he forgot to make a sunscope today. How cool is a curious mind? I am wholly inspired by him to remember how much I love to learn and in turn love to share what I've learned.
A sweetling asked me today why Mrs. Teacher-next-door's class is always in control, as I stood with my arm aching waiting for my little buggers to "show me five". I want to feel like a good teacher again.
