This was so much fun!! These pictures are from yesterday's math lesson. We, obviously, made shapes with our bodies. We made lots of shapes, so that everyone had several turns, and so that we could practice before I took pictures. I wish I had stood on a table to get a better angle. I'm sure the babies will indulge me and do it again if I ask. :) Don't you just LOVE my carpet. I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!! I got it through one of my Donors Choose grants. I've been thinking about doing another one, so be on the look out for shameless begging in the near future!

Shhhh...I may have some exciting news for you tomorrow. I've been keeping a lid on this, because I wasn't really sure what was going to happen, but now I'm fairly certain that we will FINALLY be getting another kdg. teacher, and that my class will be split again. If all goes as planned, I will drop down to about 22-23 kids. But, I don't want to jinx things, so that's all I'm going to say for now. Please send good thoughts and/or prayers!!

Your kids look so adorable!!! It also reminds me how much I miss my kids being in uniforms. :(

Congrats on getting another teacher....what a relief for you!!!

Our school is number 1 in suspensions for three years running now. Quite the honor I know!

I am still hoping for the Grand Canyon trip. We'll have to see how we do on taxes!

I love the photos - you babies are gorgeous! The carpet is too, but those babies in their uniforms are adorable.
Keep us posted about the new carpet. You are SUCH a good teacher.

OMG I love your carpet!

I've been hovering around 27 all year. 22-23 kids is still so big for Kinder, but I'm glad your class is shrinking. I wish they'd (the admin, the district) get it together at the beginning of the year so you didn't get attached before they come in and strip your babies away from you.
