Wacky Winter Weather - Part 2

Well last week we only came to school on Monday and Tuesday due to some bad winter weather that was headed our way. When I got up on Wednesday morning, the rain that had come in on Tuesday had turned to freezing rain and had icicles hanging from everything around our house. Our power went out about 10:30 am on Wednesday morning and due to the trees down and power lines down from the ice we were without power until about 10:30 pm on Sunday night. I am just thankful that my parents' power was restored on Thursday evening around 6:30 so we stayed with them. No power + a 9 month old = NO FUN!!

Needless to say we didn't come to school on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Our school was without electricity until sometime this weekend so today is our first day back. I am not looking forward to making up these days but I did enjoy all the extra time I had for hugs and kisses from my sweet baby girl! M's kisses make everything better!

Dolch Word Worms for Kindergarten & First Grade

Last year, I told you about making a set of "word worms" for the 2012 Journeys reading series to have my students practice recognizing their sight words. These word worms have made learning the sight words fun for my students. They enjoy playing the game but in order to play it well they must be able to quickly recognize their sight words.

I have had some requests to make the same game for the Pre-Primer, Primer, and 1st Grade Dolch word lists. So for those of you that do those lists instead of a reading series list, here are the word worm sets for you. Each set is $2.00 or you can get the combination set for $4.50 which will save you $1.50.

Miss M Moments - crawling and talking?!

Last week, we had 3 ice days here in SC so we were out of school Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Miss M and I loved spending time together. My hubby works for the power company so he had to be at work in case something happened to the power so unfortunately he wasn't able to spend as much time with us as he would have liked. M loved having "Mommy and Me" days at home. We played and read books which she loved.  

I can't believe I am saying this, but my sweet M is now officially mobile! She has begun crawling forward and has figured out how to get where she wants to go now either by crawling, scooting, or rolling. She is loving being able to pull up on the couch and coffee table and of course she is bothering things she has no business getting into, but she just smiles at you and it is hard to scold her!

She has also begun to talk! Her first word was "Ma-Ma" which of course just thrilled me! She has since started saying "Da-Da" too but not nearly as often as "Ma-Ma"! I love hearing her talk to me and she just smiles while she is talking.
