We have been learning about Christmas traditions in other countries over the past two weeks. Today we had a special visitor, Mrs. Zieba, Caroline’s mom, to teach us all about Poland and the Christmas traditions over there! We learned a lot and got to wear some cute hats and headbands for our picture!
Well today was a very eventful day and we have lots of pictures to share!
We had our first Mystery Reader today! Carter’s grandmother, Mrs. Campanotta read some Halloween books to us and gave us some cute Halloween pencils! We had a great time trying to guess who she was before she got here! Her clues were:
- She is a grandmother to someone in our class.
- She is an Auburn fan.
- Her daughter teaches at our school.
Also, we reached our class goal from the past two weeks and we got to celebrate with popsicles! We have been working on smooth and quiet transitions and we finally earned the reward!
Thank you all so much for making me feel so special on my birthday! I am so grateful for each of you and your children. My day was filled with lots of love and sweet surprises! I love my gift from the class and will cherish it for years to come! My awesome teacher friends decorated my door and I got lots of messages and birthday wishes from everyone at school! We have been working hard this week (and last week!) to not call out and make sure that we raise our hand. We finally met our goal yesterday and they chose the reward of bringing a small stuffed animal to have at their desk today. Also, we had a special snack thanks to my wonderful room moms and other parents that stepped in to help! We got to celebrate Columbus Day a little early with blue jello and orange slices to look like a boat sailing in the ocean! We learned about his voyage back in 1492 and the students were so excited to learn that we get Monday off of school because of his expedition! 🙂 All in all, today was a great day — and a jeans day for the teachers!! Couldn’t have asked for a better birthday!
