Wednesday Wow

I'm linking up with some of my favorite bloggers...Curious Firsties! I wish I taught next door to them. They are kind, generous and thoughtful! I love visiting them for great inspiration and encouragement. If you haven't met them go give them a hoot out!

I'm feeling WOWed by one of my second graders. She is kind, generous and thoughtful. Every day I hear someone comment about how nice she is. If I'm looking for something she just gets up and helps me look for it before anyone else even knows that I'm looking for something...She just knows. Anyone struggling to find the right page...She is right there. Someone drops a pencil...She is there. She isn't showy. She isn't trying to bring attention to herself. She is just wow! She is a gift. She loves to give gifts. She brings me a homemade book or drawing almost every morning. In her quiet unassuming way she hands it to me and quietly says, "I made this for you."

I thought I had a picture of some owls that my kind friend made to hang on our classroom wall, but I cannot find it...grrrr! I'll be back tomorrow to remove these words and show you the awesome owls that she made! I hope you can sleep tonight in anticipation!! Here are some pictures for your enjoyment  while you wait! We took Maple helicopters and used them to count by twos outside on the sidewalk. I am always looking for ways to get my students outside and keep them learning!


  1. Your little one reminds me of one of my sweet ones. I love the way she is. Your counting by 2's activity outside is so very clever!

  2. It's so nice to have at least one of those little sweeties in your class, isn't? I've been trying to get my class outside more too, thanks for the idea!

  3. I like your counting by twos idea. I think I'll do that today.

  4. Oh! I love this WOW! Thank you so much for linking up. I love reading about the great things going on for others! And Michigan....hmmm....I think we need to plan a meet up :) What do you think?


Please give me a hoot!
