I decided to post a day late today because YAHOO we have a nice long weekend! I love getting to skip a Monday.

It has taken me awhile to really figure out what I want to do during calendar time. I know that it’s important and it’s a skill that I want my kids to master. I have tried countless binders, folders, pages…etc. Nothing has really worked for me until now. I am not undoing binders and then […]

We have been talking and learning all about ways to go this week. Our shared reading for the week is “To Town” and it’s our first one. We’ve been pulling in other stories to build on our discussion about transportation. Of course, the all time favorite for the week so far is “Don’t Let the […]

What a fun weekend I had this weekend being showered yet AGAIN! Oh my word. I am surprised I didn’t have to rent a U-haul to get everything back to our house. This baby is going to be decked out for the first year of her life. Goodness. It was such a special day and […]

It’s Fall Break week! Oh my WORD. And a field trip. And a Fall party. Somewhere in there we are going to be learning about pumpkins and the life cycle. When we go to the farm on Tuesday, we get to walk around the pumpkin patch and pick pumpkins off the vine. This is a […]
