Verse of the Week

Next week my kids and I will start week 3 of
"Verse of the Week."
Each Monday, I choose a verse for us to focus on,
study, discuss and memorize.
They are LOVING it. 
They get the verse on Monday and we work with it all week.
On Friday, they try to say it from memory.
Most of them get it every week!

My "Scripture Sailing" packets are always FREE here.
It's what I use to practice each week.

Since we are already into February, I'm thinking about LOVE verses.
Next week we are doing John 3:16.

I hope you and your kids LOVE it.

Scripture Sailing and a New Job

I know it's been a while but I'm back at it.

I've been gone for so long that I haven't reported in that I have news:) 

In December I left my teaching job after 23 years.
Two weeks later, I started teaching 3rd grade 
at a private Christian school.

I could NOT be more THRILLED!!!!

I have spent years making Biblical resources that I have never been able to use.
Well, now I can!!!

My new job also makes this scripture sailing thing really helpful to me!

I am doing a "Verse of the Week"
in my classroom.

I simply added a decorated sheet to a picture frame.
Every Monday I write the new verse on the frame with a dry erase marker.

The kids and I practice it every day.
They like making up motions for each part of the verse to help them memorize it.

On Friday, they all try to quote the verse from memory.

I love that they are memorizing scripture.

This coming week our verse will be
Deuteronomy 6:5.
I'm so excited about using the word cards from this packet
during our Word Work Station.
I made the cards to send home for practice.
And coloring/drawing sheets just for fun and it they choose to do them.

Throwback Thursday - Student Binders

How about a little Throwback Thursday?
I've been teaching for 22 years and when I look back at my first year, I sometimes cringe at the things I thought and the things I did. Yes, they were all good growing and learning experiences but still......
(let's blame the fact that I was pregnant for the outfit LOL)

Here's just one example.
My first year teaching I was terrified to ask parents to help or come in my classroom so I spent countless nights filing and packing Friday folders. ARG!
I would love to have that time back.

22 years later, the door is wide open.
I will grab any warm body walking by and ask for help :)

I've also come up with a better system for Friday folders.
I shared my Student Binders over at The Teaching Tribune.
You can read my throwback post here.

Pirate Girl Who? and a Linky....

Really?? 5 months? 
I'll tell you what I've been doing so maybe you'll forgive me for being 
gone from my poor blog for so long.
I was busy marrying the man of my dreams!
We had a perfect wedding on the beach. 
Not very big, but just exactly what I wanted :) 
Loved our beachy cake, and especially love this picture LOL
There were too many cell phones taking pictures, we were rarely 
looking at the same one at the same time.
Anyway, that's what I've been up to.

Hope you're getting off to a great summer.
I'm going to kick off summer by joining up with my friend Cyndie over at 
Chalk One Up for the Teacher for her 2 for Tuesday linky party.
This week I'm offering 2 of my newest products for 1/2 price.
If you use my task cards, I have just made a MEGA BUNDLE of all of them.
You can grab that below while it's on sale too.

Perfect PEACE

Anyone need some peace???
There are many days that I wake up unsettled, a little rattled.
Don't like to call it worried (but that's what it is).

Today was one of those days.

My morning routine sends me to the WORD right after I make the coffee, 
and today was no different.

And just like usual, when I need something from HIM, HE gives it to me.

My devotion this morning was about worry and being a control freak.
Who ME????? Yep!

So I got the reminder again this morning to LET IT GO!
(No, I'm not going to sing to you.)
But I am going to try to keep in mind that HE IS IN CONTROL,
that worry is not helping anything.

So here is the SCRIPTURE SAILING verse of the day....

Isaiah 26:3
