Blog Award!

Wow! I have received another blog award! I have received the Liebster Award for Kelly at All That Glitters in First Grade! Thanks Kelly! Now I have to give it to 5 blogs that have less than 200 followers.
Here they are:

At my school I am sometimes know as the Pig Teacher,(no, it is not what you are thinking, they are not calling my kiddos pigs) because I love pigs and over the years I have accumulated an over abundance of pig collectibles in my classroom. I have gotten them as gifts from students, colleagues, and parents. I have pigs everywhere so I thought I would take a few pictures and show you some of my pigs.

We have been reading a story about a fly named Herman in our reading class. We finished up our textbook A and were left in suspense at the end of the book (we would get textbook B the next day) because something sinister was moving toward Herman, so we did a prediction chart and each student wrote a prediction as to what was coming toward Herman. They wrote their prediction on a sticky note and then put it on the chart. Before we read the next chapter about Herman in our new textbook, we went over the predictions. Some predicted a giant fly swatter, others predicted a human, and one student predicted a cow(don't know where he got that idea from). It was fun to see who predicted correctly.  Sorry, don't know how to turn around!!
 It is not my best chart, but I did it in a hurry!!

Well, gotta eat!!  Oh!! I forgot ! Next week is out winter break!! WooHoo!! We all need a break!
