Marshmallows are almost never a bad idea.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 12, 2012 12:21:39 PM PDT
After you eat the whole bag . . . perhaps not the best idea!

That's part of what the "almost" is about.

Lol! I toasted some homemade marshmallows over the stove until the outside got crispy. They were sooooo good!

Good morning!

Good morning, J.D.!

I'm back at work and my little darlings are keeping me on my toes. Not too much time for posting. :)

I miss working with kids, I used to work at camps when I was a teenager and while I don't miss the "camp" part at all, I miss the little ones. Enjoy them while they're little and adorable:)

Thanks, Karen. I'm really enjoying this class. They are fun and very well behaved. I feel so fortunate. :)

What age group do you teach?

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 21, 2012 10:16:04 AM PDT
5-6 at the start. First grade.

Posted on Aug 21, 2012 5:23:38 PM PDT
That's a great age to work with. You have a chance to help determine how they will feel about school and learning for the rest of their lives.

I really think first grade is the most important grade. They learn so much more during this year than any other, as far as I can tell. It's quite amazing.

It's an important age, certainly. A good teacher at that age can make a real dfference.

My son was already reading when he went into Kindergarten, so he didn't find school as much of a learning experience as he'd hoped it would be, but for most kids first grade is when the amazing world of books really opens up for the first time.

Oh, how sad. A jaded Kindergartner!

I always have some students to read and some who don't at the beginning of the year. This year I have a student who barely knows some letters and her parents don't speak English well, so it's going to be a challenge!

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 28, 2012 9:09:09 PM PDT
That really is a challenge!

It will be really interesting to see how she progresses.

Related story that may be of interest: I was having trouble reading in first grade, and then they told my Mom that I might be, you know...behind. My mom asked if they had been teaching phonics in the classroom: nope, "Whole Language" reading.

Now I don't remember, but according to my Mom, she got me a phonics book and I was reading by the end of that day. A year or two later, I was reading several years ahead of grade level. My mom will still lecture anyone for an hour if they dare broach the subject of Whole Language Reading.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 29, 2012 7:46:32 AM PDT
Whole Language Reading is such nonsense. Might as well tell a chef to cook without knives.

Smart lady, your mom!

Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone who has the day off is enjoying the long weekend.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 3, 2012 2:20:12 PM PDT
I am, though I'd enjoy it more if it were longer!

How about you?

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 3, 2012 3:05:22 PM PDT
I have every day off, or no days off, depending on how you look at it...but I am enjoying the weekend with my family.

Oops this guy seems to have fallen off a cliff.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 6, 2012 5:23:43 PM PDT
A cliffhanger!

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 6, 2012 9:38:45 PM PDT
Cliff Hanger? Are you or your students fans of "Between the Lions", the old PBS literacy show?

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 6, 2012 10:53:58 PM PDT
I loved Between the Lions.

My favorite song: Tammy Lionette - "W Trouble"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1flByNJAtpA

I looked on YouTube to find that song and I also found one I'd tried to find before: Sven said ten tents.
