Happy Spring and Fun with 7th and 8th

Come on in, the weather is gorgeous!  I can't believe that this is March in Michigan.  It feels much more like the first day of summer than spring.  I've said it before, I'm glad I don't have an outside window in my room.  I like pretending it's dreary and miserable out there!  Then when school is over for the day, it's like opening a wonderful present to walk out in the warm air and sunshine.

When I walked outside yesterday morning this is what I saw:

It looks like the moon is resting on the branch!

As luck would have it "my" computer lab was being used for other purposes yesterday afternoon.  This meant that at the last minute I had to come up with alternative plans for my afternoon classes.  Extra recess is quite popular especially with the middle school crowd!  After they got to play with my new Corian blocks and play Who Can Build the Highest Tower game we headed out to listen to the songs of birds and look for signs of spring.




Things are pretty slow in first grade this week with achievement testing going on.  There are somethings we aren't willing to give up this week, however.  We have to keep reading and laughing through Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, and reading Clifford books. We keep working a little each day at counting money, too!

Didn't my Firsties do a great job turning Clifford into a big, RED dog?

Happy First Day of Spring to you!  I hope your weather is as delightful as mine!

It's fun going from first grade in the morning to seventh and eighth in the afternoon!



  1. Hey Jenny!
    Great post --
    My favorite grades are 7 and 8. I am interested in hearing more about your experiences!
    I can't wait to follow along :)


  2. I love 7th and 8th grade to since I am in 7th. I like the picture when we were in the tree and when we were stacking the tiles up. I love having you as a teacher.

    1. That was a fun day! I hope the computer lab is in use again sometime! I love you!!
