Dancing in Heaven

I am part of the group of bloggers that writes for 
The Teaching Tribune.
We have been like a tight-knit family for over a year.

We have shared professional and personal lives.
We have laughed, cried, supported each other,
and loved each other through some mountaintops and valleys.
They are a group like no other.
On Monday, we lost one of our own.
Our sweet friend Teresa, from 
The 2nd Grade Pig Pen,
passed away on Monday after a long illness.

She was such a vital part of our group,
that it has just been heartbreaking.

She was always available for support and love
and to cheer us on with her "dances."

She had a dance for everything, good times and bad.
She made us laugh so much.

I know that Teresa is in the hands of God,
and I just know that she is doing her best dancing right now.

We miss you and love you Teresa!!
Thank you for sharing your life with us!
(Me, Terry - Terry's Teaching Tidbits, Cynthia - 2nd Grade Pad; Teresa - 2nd Grade Pig Pen)
Don't wait to tell those around you how important they are to you.

Wordless Wednesday

Linking up again this week for Wordless Wednesday.

This is a picture of most of my FAVORITE teacher buddies :)
We get together outside of school as often as possible.

This past month it was for pedicures.

So what about you?
Do you get together with colleagues outside of school?
What kinds of things do you do for fun?

Would love to hear from you!

Wordless Wednesday

Best bulletin board of all time, right? LOL

We've spent the last 2 weeks on state testing.
We had to cover everything in our room.

How about you?
Does your district make you hide or take down everything on the walls before the test?

Would love to hear your comments.

Anything Uglier?????

Have you ever come across something random and thought,
"I could use that in my classroom"?
Well that happened to me recently.
I was visiting a friend who had a collection of old things that were ready for a yard sale.
He said there was something I had to see,
he just KNEW that I would "want it."

Well he was right, I did want it LOL!
Not because of its beauty, but because it was the ugliest thing I had ever seen.
Why would anyone own this?

Anyway, when I saw it I knew my kids would LOVE it!!
And boy do they. It makes me laugh every day.

We built several lessons around this thing.
We did a predicting activity, named them, gave them ages and birthdays,
and wrote stories about them.
Last week it was Princess's birthday and
they insisted on making her a crown and giving her a birthday sticker.
So I'm sure you don't have anything uglier than that hanging out in your classroom.
But I would love to hear from you.

What is the oddest thing that you have ever turned into a lesson
just to get your kids' attention?

Leave a comment and maybe a laugh or two :)
