Monday Randomness!

I don't know about the rest of you, but on a Monday my brain goes in a million different directions. Today was no exception. It was a Day 5 - my day with no planning time whatsoever - and it was raining. REALLY raining, which meant indoor recesses all day. Booo....

Despite all that, my kiddos and I had some things to smile about. Here goes:

1. SMART Board + DVD player = Happy Indoor Recess!
Thank you, Finding Nemo!!

2. I'm expecting!
A monarch, that is! :) I was so thrilled to see this when I arrived this morning! I am crossing my fingers that the kids and I get to see it emerge some time next week, and that the temperatures hold off so we can release it! The other one is STILL eating, and if it doesn't hurry up I don't hold out much hope for it!

3. We made it!!
We have worked so hard for the past month building our reading stamina, and today we reached our goal! What a happy bunch of readers! :)

Happy Monday, Everyone! :)


  1. Hi Erin! Love your stamina chart! We are gradually increasing our silent reading time - just soft music and NO talking - and this would be a great way for them to chart their progress. Thanks!
    PS: Thanks for the wonderful feedback on the sentence builder set - so glad it will save you some time!

    1. Thanks, Susanna! The chart was certainly motivating! It is a Daily 5 thing that we have done as we get the program rolling!
      PS: You are SO welcome! I really appreciate that you changed those words, and so quickly! I used the first page with a little one diagnosed MID, and she loved it!!
