Goodbye 30's and Spelling

I woke up on Tuesday a 40-yr-old. My hubs keeps saying it's "just a number", but this was a tough one to swallow. I didn't think it would be. But it was.

I got to spend the entire day in pd. I would rather have been with the Fab 4s. They were so excited that it made me feel excited. They wanted to bake me brownies. It actually felt like getting ready for an actual birthday, instead of what birthdays become when you grow up. I would have liked to have spent the day with them.

I've been working with kids this week on reading, finally starting to pull small strategy groups and working with my RtI group. I was worried about not knowing how to do it, after teaching first grade for so long, but it was ok. My Fab 4s aren't going to suffer horribly at my hands after all ;)

I created 4 sheets for the Fabs to practice their spelling words with. They each have a different list so I needed something that was flexible and fun. I know that these sheets won't last the entire year, but I think they will be fun for a few weeks at a time. I am thinking that I'll throw in magazine words and stamping words in between, and toss in some iTouch spelling games.

You can get the goods here....


  1. Happy (late) Birthday! Glad your Fab 4's made you feel good - kids have such a way of turning something you're dreading into something worth celebrating :)
