I’m digging all these positive quote sweaters and tees! 😍 Where are you finding your favorites?
Where kids are allowed to lead, they learn. Allowing students a voice and choice in how they learn throughout the day, is one little way to make a BIG impact! Watching this little class of cuties check in for literacy stations today was amazing! Watching another class of Kinders share their success criteria for the day melted my ❤️. What’s one routine, you might be able to relinquish control of and hand over to kids? It’s so awesome what they can do, when allowed.... #firstgrade #balancedliteracy #kids #kidscan #studentledclassroom #sawkindersleadingtodaytoo #instructionalcoach #bestoftheday
So many of you, in fact... 1 in 4 of you, will sit today and ponder “why?” I’m right there with you!! Why will 1 in 4 of us experience pregnancy or infant loss? It seems so unfair at times, and I don’t have any answers. But I see you. And I pray for you, always.
Grieve as you should. Don’t let anyone tell you when you should “move on.” We don’t ever really move on, we just simply find a way to live despite the misfortune. Life continues to roll on by. And if you decide to try again and are blessed with another sweet baby, you will never forget the one or ones you lost. And if you decide not to try again, that is ok too. For once you see those two pink lines, your life forever changes. I surely haven’t figured out why these things happen- I just have to hold faith that our little bean was needed more up There than down here. And until we meet again little one, I’ll cherishing the four earthly babies that God has let me borrow for this life! 😇
So light your candle tonight and remember all the babies gone too soon. We love you all, miss you, and hold you in our hearts forever...
Welp, cue the ugly crying. Noah’s class writes letters to the “student of the week” telling them why they like them. They are all sweet and nice, but this one really hit me in the feels. “When I don’t have someone to play with me you come and play with me.” 😭😭 My amazing little boy has such a natural love for others. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #noahlincoln #sixyearsold #firstgrade #proudmama
Fun Fact: this was my absolute FAVORITE thing to do in PE when I was in 1st grade (besides the scooters of course 💁🏼♀️). The minute we brought this out my kids OOOOOHHHHHDDD and AAAAHHHHHDDDD. So happy they love the same things as me!
