Keep On Truckin'

Hey! Hey! Hey! So we're halfway through our first week of the 3rd quarter. The students have come back very focused and dedicated to their learning... which is a good thing because our HIGH expectations are even HIGHER! I am so excited to see where this quarter takes us!

And the MOST exciting thing that is happening in Room 1419 is... MS. WING!!! Ms. Wing is a senior at NC State who is working hard to earn her teaching degree. I'm sure her name is familiar because she has been with us since the beginning of the school year. As her senior year comes close to an end...the time has come to start her full-time student teaching. EXCITING! Every week she is taking over more and more of our day.  Ms. Wing is so calm, nurturing, and natural with the class. Since she's been with us from the beginning the transition is going very smoothly. I remain in the classroom and support her throughout the day. The kids are very comfortable with Ms. Wing and are thrilled to see her every day. (as am I) :) The more the merrier!!!

Feel free to stop by and introduce yourself to Ms. Wing:)

Pajama Day!

To celebrate ALL of our class compliments we will have a pajama day on Friday January 27, 2012. Please allow your child to wear his/her pjs to school this Friday. They may ALSO bring ONE stuffed animal to school on Friday. The stuffed animal must be able to fit inside their bookbags.
Way to go 1st graders!!!

Happy 2012!

Hi to all my favorite first graders! I hope everyone is staying warm and cozy over track-out. This weather is perfect for snuggling up and reading a good book. I've been doing a lot of that. In fact...some days go by and I don't even get out of my pajamas! Oooops! I wanted to write this post and let you all know that I've been enjoying my break...and I hope you are too! Here are some things I've been doing...

I visited my GREAT Grandma, Nannie, in Tennessee. She's 97!!!

I made some DELICIOUS cookies...thanks Abby!

I took Bacu on a playdate!
Oh...and I bumped into Scotty McCreery while shopping.
(No Big Deal...;) )

I'll be sure to tell you all about my adventures when we track back in on January 23, 2012! I hope everyone has a wonderful, happy, healthy 2012! I miss you!

Happy New Year!
