I LOVE the Song by Kenny Chesney
Just like that you’re six years old
and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and
your high school sweetheart
becomes your wife
You just might miss your babies growing
like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
next thing you know your “better half”
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend
a hundred years
goes faster than you think
So don’t blink…
Well….. I BLINKED!
I am still taking down Christmas Decor
and it’s almost MARCH!
Wait! Slow down! I AM NOT READY!
So…I am slowing things down in my classroom.
We are almost done with the third quarter
of first grade.
We have “phonemic awarenessed”
We practice word families.
We have learned more grammar rules
than I ever dreamed.
We write 1,2,3,4,5 times a day.
We read every half hour.
We know more math than our parents.
We know about Presidents, animals,
We know HOW TO, Who, What,
When, Where, & Why
some most of us do)
We have TESTED & RETESTED…
And now…we are SSSlowing things down!
Time to take a breath & practice
using ALL of this new first grade information!
My kiddos have come a LONG way.
Very proud of them!
As we finish the next 3 months..
It will be gone before you know it!
PS…Is it SPRING BREAK yet?
Thanks for hanging in there
all the way to HERE!!!
