Thursday was test day. Writing test day. We were given a prompt and each student had to write and draw about the prompt. Before I gave the student their prompt I reminded each student of how smart they were and how I knew they were going to do great on their test! After their pep talk I gave each student some brain sprinkles!

I was excited about going back to see my kinders this morning.
We only have about 6 weeks left together and I want to make every day count! I have treasured this year so much and I plan to treasure our last 6 weeks together even more. These kinders have captured my heart.
Today was great.
Each child made my heart proud!
They were such busy little students and worked so hard!
I loved watching them come in and smile and catch up with their friends.
We had lots of eventful things happen over break! We had 2 girls come in with both of their front teeth missing. One got her ears pierced. One turned 6.
I am telling you BIG things!!!
I received lots of hugs and I didn't mind it one little bit! I had missed them so much.
During share time I let each child say one thing they did over Spring Break. My favorite, "I was just lazy." My kind of Spring Break!

Spring Break 2011 has been great! It has been a quiet week. I have really enjoyed hanging around my little town.
I enjoyed babysitting my "niece!" She is just the cutest thing EVER!!! She loves her Aunt La La!
I enjoyed 2 nights of slumber parties with some girls from my bible study! I loved being silly with them and having much needed girl time!
I shopped and found some super cute spring things!
I cleaned my room and replaced all my winter clothes with my spring and summer stuff. I love getting out all my summer stuff because I always forget what I have!
I got and HIGHLY enjoyed a pedicure! I am loving the color I picked too!!! I must buy some ASAP!
I also enjoyed catching up on some movies and TV shows.
I had good intentions of working on school stuff, but I found too many other things to take up my time doing! I have done a little bit, but I got sad when I realized that I only have 33 more school days with them.
This week was much needed, but I have really missed my kinders! They have been on my mind a lot. I have been wondering what they have been up to for the past 6 days. I hope they have enjoyed their time off and ready to come back and learn, learn, learn!
.....and last of all I picked up our local newspaper to see my debut!

Friday was a blast! Each student was so excited to come in wearing their costume and checking out their friends costumes too. They were in awe of my costume!
My fear was that I would have some students come in that morning and not have a costume or not have a book. I really discussed it with my students about what they were going to wear and that they needed to have a book about who they were dressed up as. Like any great teacher I was glad I was prepared because I had 2 students come in that morning without a costume or a book! I had gotten some simple things together which I am SO glad I did!
I was Cowgirl Kate from the book Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa by Erica Silverman (who also wrote one of my most favorite books Big Pumpkin)!

Happy last week of school before Spring Break! I am so super excited about a week off! I do not have too much planned but I am excited about having some time off and enjoying some time to myself.
Every year my school has a "Book Character Day." Since my Aunt worked at the same school a couple of years ago I had heard about this special day and so I knew how this day was such a big deal to our school! I have been reminding my students about it for over a month and we have been deciding what each student can come dressed as!
Our Book Character day is on Friday. I am getting so excited about it.
Our music teacher has also been planning something special with the whole school. If you have not heard or watched this song and mob dance you must check it out!
The students have been practicing in music and in our class almost every day! We are so pumped about being able to dance in our costumes with our favorite books on Friday.
Gotta Keep Readin’
Cause this book’s gonna be a good good book
