Horton Hatches the Egg

The class play was quite a hit. We decided to present a Dr Seuss classic and it was very well received. Horton proved once again that an elephant is faithful 100 percent. The school year is almost over and my students have started acting like first graders. This transformation has always brought a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Class Play

I got back to school this week after a wonderful vacation. The cruise to Mexico was just what I needed. I came back refreshed and full of creative ideas. It has become a sort of right of passage for my class to do a class play at the end of the year. There is nothing cuter than a traditional... Sign in to see full entry.

This year, I'm taking a cruise to Mexico and I plan to have a wonderful time.Nothing can stop me from reaching that goal. I recently spoke to my students about my upcoming vacation and I...

A Painted Goat

It has been over a month since I wrote in this blog. I've been busy and my sons came home for Spring Break. It seems odd to have Spring Break before Easter, and to have Easter before Passover. Who makes these decisions anyway??? Well, let's get to today's story. Last week was Test Week at my school.... Sign in to see full entry.

Lemon Face!

For some unknown reason, my students were very moody today. Rather than spending my time teaching them how to read, I spent most of the day solving trivial problems like why we should share the crayons and who is whistling during story time...and could they please stop. These issues are only... Sign in to see full entry.

Snow Day

For those of you who don't live in Florida this whole blog will not make sense to you. However, if you stay with me it will all become clear in the end. I promise.Anyway, at my school we have an event called Snow Day. Since snow is a rarity here, the school pays for a snow making truck to dump a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Enigma of Autism

Over the weekend, I attended a workshop to learn about autism since I am planning to tutor an autistic child. It was a two day hands-on workshop that offered me an opportunity to practice skills as they were being taught. In my opinion, that is the best way to learn. The subject of autism is so...

The Zoo Trip

Our annual trip to the zoo took place yesterday. I always have to get lots of sleep prior to that outing with my class because it takes all my strength and patience to walk through the park with 20 children and the chaperons (volunteers) assigned to me. As usual, I reviewed the do's and don't's to... Sign in to see full entry.

The Report Card Shuffle

Once again it's time to write report cards. For the next two weeks I'll be evaluating the kids in my class to give an account of their progress. Can they read? Can they write? Can they tie their shoes? Can they share a toy or a smile with a friend? Can they pay attention for an extended period of... Sign in to see full entry.

Hooked on Phonics

I got this joke from a friend and I'd like to share it with you... A GOOD LAUGH WITH A FIVE YEAR OLD, WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET, READ ON! A Frickin' Elephant Jake is 5 and learning to read. He points to a picture in a zoo book and says, "Look Mama! It's a frickin' Elephant!" Deep breath... "What... Sign in to see full entry.
