The end is near!

Coffee in the morning, Moutain Dew at lunch, and maybe some wine at night.  This is how I'm surviving the end of the year! :)  The end of the year brings such excitement for both students and teacher.  At the same time it can make us all go a little crazy too.
I want to appologize for not posting anything of great importance in a while.  I am finishing up all assessments, report cards, our class DVD, and packing up my room.  Doesn't sound like much, but just when I think I am close to the end, I remember something else that I need to do.  While trying to do all of this...I have to teach a room of twenty-one eight year olds.  However, I would not trade this job for anything in the world.  I love what I do and I love my students.  I am really going to miss them.

I met The Sisters!

For those of you who have been following my blog, know how much I L-O-V-E the Daily 5 and CAFE!  So when I got to meet The Sisters this week at the IRA conference in Chicago I was a blubbering mess. I wish I would have been a little more coherent and shared with them the impact their books have had on my classroom and my teaching. 
Oh well, who knows maybe I will get to meet them again and be able to compose myself enough to speak professionally.
