This is my riff on an opinion piece I read about going back to work. I took it and made a few changes. Feel free to let me know if you’ve been going to church. Worshipping from home is no longer fun — it’s time to go back to the Church By JWhit~ June 14, … Continue reading Go to church!
I admit it, I’m not remotely excited about this school year. Moving to a different grade level and changing classrooms…again. For those keeping score this is my 6th move in as many years. I’m flustered and really kinda over it. Moving to a private school was really a change for me. Since moving here I’ve … Continue reading I need something…different
I am not certain we qualify as true scientists, but hey. We finished the project. We’ve come up with some results and a ton of more questions. So the seeds in compost grew the best. Worm castings and potting soil were 2nd and 3rd respectively. However neither of the runners up were spectacular at all. … Continue reading Tomato experiment
I am all about the class coming up with solutions. Even if I regret that decision later. I expressed to the kids my concern with worms being in the castings.

I am enjoying this school year. This class is the best that I’ve ever had in my years of teaching. I’ve never had so many students in one class that want to learn. Even the few that are off task aren’t horribly off task. This has been a great school year. To say that I’m … Continue reading Why I lowered all my tables in my class
I’ve been talking about changing the homework in my class for a while. I am almost ready to reveal the (hopefully) finished product. My students have been pretty good at reading and building their stamina. I think this is going to be a real boost to their understanding of the reading process, comprehension and overall … Continue reading Almost ready for the reveal
I can’t say it any other way, but I really am thankful for this class. This year has been interesting. However, when the door closes on room B27 I have the best group of 3rd grade learners a teacher could ask. It’s going to be a year to say the least, but I really … Continue reading Thank God for this class
