I come from a huge family that has lots of traditions.  So because of this, I have created lots of traditions for my little family and of course in my classroom.  One of my favorite traditions is football Fridays.  Every Friday morning during football season, we always sing Rocky Top.  It began this past Friday and I was super excited! I was surprised that several of my sweeties didn't know Rocky Top.  I told them their homework was to learn Rocky Top by next Friday.  So to help out, I've included the link to the Osborne Brothers rendition of Rocky Top.  Enjoy and GO VOLS!!!

As a mom of two, life can just get crazy sometimes.  I'm constantly looking for ways to make our little families life easier.  I know I'm not the only one out there. Can I get an amen?  So...... I've loaded some links to help you mommies and daddies support your sweeties.  These links are aligned with our reading series and will help reinforce the skills we are learning here at school.  Just click on the links and follow the directions.  Hopefully this will help somebody out there by making their life a little less crazier.

Reading links for the week of August 19!

It's that time again!!!

I have this love-hate relationship with the beginning of school.  On the down side, I love spending time with my babies and summer is the perfect time to do that by sleeping in, going to the dollar day Thursdays at the movies, swimming,....I could go on and on.  The up side is that I love shopping the school section at Target, preparing to meet all my lovelies, preparing my room, and getting a fresh large McDonald's coffee every morning.  But, ready or not here it comes! This year is even more exciting for me because I am moving to First Grade! So excited but SO nervous! It hit home when I traded my student desks for tables.  My baby is going to Kindergarten and my oldest is going to the big hall for 3rd grade! I. Am. In. Denial.  So because of this, parents please know that I understand how precious your babies are and I am here to help them get the best out of their education and I am also here for you as you let them go to help them become responsible citizens.  It's hard. I get it.  So hopefully this blog will help you feel connected to them during their day.  Again, I am so happy that you have trusted me with your babies.  Thank you.
