I'm a year old!

I'm a year old! For some reason, just a minute ago, I thought to myself that I ought to check when I wrote  my first blog post - and guess what - it was a year ago today! Happy Birthday to my blog!

I was thinking of writing a quick post tonight anyway, but I didn't take a picture, so I had sort of decided not to. But it was so sweet and since I'm doing a little happy dance about my blog's birthday, I'm going to include it!

This afternoon, we were finishing up a project called Heart Maps (I AM going to take pictures and share) and as students got done, I asked them to do some quiet reading. Toward the very end of the day, most everyone was reading, so I told them they could buddy read. We haven't done this in a while, and it was just terrific - all over the room, kids were sharing their books, reading, or at least intently look at pictures. Yeah! And I have pictures in my mind :)

I've got kids tomorrow and then parents on Thursday and Friday - that's right, parent teacher conferences. There's also some talk of a winter storm on its way, but ... you know, I don't like to think about the possibilities.

Have a great Wednesday! Sara
