Thank You All!

Hello Everyone! I sure hope you are all having a fantastic Thanksgiving week! I just want you all to know how truly blessed I am this year. I don't think I have ever had such a positive experience conferencing! As a teacher it is one of the most rewarding experiences to look at each child individually and to see growth after only a few short months! The feedback I got from all of you was also nice and it makes me feel like the work I put into this job is appreciated and noticed. It truly fills my heart with joy. One more thing, I need to give a HUGE shout out to Helen Reading (Elijah's mom) for helping me diagnose, fix, and figure out how to post pictures to the blog! I can now make it a more colorful, interactive, and interesting page to look at :)

Hello Everyone! It's about time I post something on this blog I was going to keep up on ;) Part of my draw to writing a blog was being able to post pictures. However, there is some kind of block that has kept me from posting pictures.

It has been a great couple of months and there are many things that have been happening in the classroom. Last week we had a terrific Halloween party! Thank you to everyone who helped with refreshments, costumes, etc.

This week students finally filled in their reward chart for good behavior. The prize was a "mystery" so when they finally filled in that last square, we had cookies, milk, and watched a movie during the last half an hour of the day yesterday. Everyone was very excited and when they got their cookies and milk said, "Thank you Mrs. Pope" without prompting. I was impressed at how polite they were! You have raised such great children. We voted on our next prize which will be having lunch in the classroom!

Next week is a three day week and conferences start on Friday! See you all very soon!

Update: Since I can now post pictures, here's one of our next reward :)
