1st day of school

I wonder if I will get the jitters on every one of my first days of school? Today was the first day of summer school and it went very smoothly!

I still can't get over two of my boys' names: Richard and Frank. For some reason, I just imagine middle age men when I hear those names! But sure enough, they are little boys.

We are doing reading ALL DAY! Reading is my favorite thing to teach, so that is good for me. These little ones need lots of encouragement when it comes to reading. My main goal is to increase their confidence in reading and get them to stop saying, "I can't read."

And - exciting news was waiting for me when I got home and checked my email. 6YearMed emailed me to let me know I won her giveaway - a Starbucks gift card! How cool it is to win something from someone I feel like I know ... Thanks Danielle!

  1. You have the unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these children. Small groups are easier than larger ones, however, now you get to improve the reading skills of 15 kiddos instead of 8.

    We've got a give away going on our site right could get lucky and win something else! I love contests, they're such fun!
