You know you have too many cats
when this is what you see at
feeding time in the morning!
As an elementary school teacher I enjoy the month of February but find it incredibly busy and short. The beginning of a new month always makes me hop to change student calendars, seasonal themes, and bulletin boards. Here is a list of typical primary subject matter for February:
- African American History Month
- Ground Hog's Day (No, I am serious!)
- Chinese New Year
- The 100th Day of School
- Valentine's Day activities, including a class party
- Focus on presidents, especially Lincoln and Washington
I want to share the clever artwork done by students in neighboring classrooms celebrating Abraham Lincoln.
A directed draw of Lincoln by two students of my friend and first grade colleague Kathy Jewell. The Lincoln on the right is crying because he is sad about the American Civil War.
class of my next door neighbor and
first grade colleague, Marni Posl. I love
the difference between the two as they
show the range in ability.
They are both charming!
I recently discovered and
joined a wonderful Yahoo
Group, Crazy Quilters
International. On their blog
they have these wonderful
covered boxes that
members made for an
exchange. I joined
too late for the exchange
but I love the idea. I
decided to try to make
one for my mother for
Valentine's day. I just
finished it tonight! I learned a
lot and can't wait to try it again!
Happy Valentine's Day Mom! I love you.
