I saw a linky party I found hilarious
Time Travel Tuesday with I Heart Recess
Good Lord, Yep - I posted it! lol
Grade: 1st Grade
School: Aliquippa Elementary School
Teacher: Mrs. Damon
Favorites: New Kids On The Block, Full House, Mr. Bellvadere, Big Hair, Bows and Belts!
Memories: I remember round robin reading and hating it so much. I remember her flirting with the male first grade teacher in the doorway. I swear they didn't do much teaching. I remember loving all of the crafts and I remember lunch time. We had to put our heads down for five minutes as we all lined up for recess. I used to pretend my fingers were ice skater legs and I was performing. Obviously not getting why they had our heads down. I also remember that the sporks we used had numbers on the back and we would always pretend that was how old we were!
Be sure to link up with I Heart Recess!!
My second link up is for favorite Read Aloud!
I was over at the The Teacher's Chair
I have so many favorite read alouds but my all time favorite is by Cynthia Rylant. The Old Woman Who Named Things
It is a beautiful book!
It is a beautiful story about an Old Woman who is afraid she has out-lived everyone in her life, and has begun naming objects that she knows she can outlive. It is wonderful for sequencing and comprehension. Not only that, it is a wonderful story about how a dog comes into her life, and how she changes through the story, making it a great synthesizing story!
I read it for our Tales by Twilight at school because it is heart - warming!
My second book is by Peter Reynolds
He is the author of The Dot which I love, but this is a great one about being yourself and accepting that your imperfections are beautiful.
It is called ISH
If you haven't read it, you won't be disappointed! It is a fantastic read aloud.
Here is a sneak peak at what I am working on next :
