Happy Busy Monday !

Have you ever tried to herd cats ?   That is what today was like ! Have you ever went down the toy aisle at the local goodwill after children have been let loose to play ? That is what today was like ! Oh Monday !  But the good news is we all made […]


I am happy to say that today we finished up our Dial three  assessments.  It is very comprehensive and takes SO much time.  Our parent teacher conferences are scheduled for October 1st . On that day we will discuss results.  In the picture below Ms Dallas is playing a game with Tiana trying to see […]

Dial Three

I have no pictures today of wonderful activities we did .  Our lesson plan included tracing our hands and making a chart called ” helpful hands / hurtful hands. ”  Instead… we worked on our assessments  ( Dial 3 ) . These assessments have to be done within 45 days and I agree they are […]


Today we took a lot of new materials out for our bird unit.  One of the games we played was a rhyming game.  I have each of the kids a picture and they had to find their rhyming partner.  Most of my older kiddos are great at rhyming.  At home playing silly rhyming games helps […]

Can I scream now?

Get a cup of coffee and maybe a tylenol. I need to spill.   Tonight were our required assessments for our state funded program.  Don’t get me wrong, I am not looking the gift horse in the mouth but….   We are told that having children sit for more than 10 minutes is not appropriate. […]

We finished our Dial Three Assessments !

>We finished our Dial Three Assessments today. I even have them scored. It always feels great to get to the end of our year and see how much we have grown and how much we have learned. I would like to take credit for that but for the most part it is part of nature. […]
