Wow... I just looked at the date on my last blog post and it said March 1st! No way has that much time passed since I last wrote, but... alas...... that is the truth...... I am not sure about you, but I have found that once March comes, the remainder of the school year starts to speed up and before you know it, it is MAY and time to start end of year planning...... SLOW Down, March! There's so much I still need to get done before you disappear!!!
I am joining my friend, Kacy, from Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday! Yay!
1. It was a rainy day today and what better way to spend some time in kindergarten than to make "U is for Umbrella" pictures! Seriously... for as simple as this project was, could these pictures be any cuter? Love the details these sweeties added on their pages! (The pages are white, by the way! Not sure why they look so yellow here!)
2. One thing that kept me from writing is the fact that my colleagues and I attended the Illinois State Kindergarten conference in Schaumburg. We are so lucky to be able to attend this awesome conference every ever year. Some really amazing teacher bloggers present there and we are blessed to be able to learn from them..... Kim Adsit, Kathy Griffin, Deedee Wills, Donna Boucher from Math Coaches Corner, and Harry Kindergarten. Here is a not-so-good picture of me with Pete Harry after his presentation. If you have not heard of him (and I am not sure of ANY kindergarten teacher who has NOT!), you just have to check out his videos. They are ah-mazing! And Mr. Harry is a wonderful, wonderful, inspirational speaker! If you get a chance to see him in person, go for it! HERE is the link to his website:
Hop on over to Kacey's blog for her amazing Five for Friday link up!
Until next time, my friends!
