Writing Idea & a BIG thanks!

Happy Monday! I am tutoring this summer and have a set of quadruplets and a first grade student. The quads (2 boys and 2 girls) were in my kindergarten class! They are the coolest children. I also had the first grade student when he was in kindergarten. It is fun to see the kids during the summer! We have been working on some of the Writetools tricks. One of the students had just gotten back from Florida, so we wrote about it. Check out the PLAN! Then, the story. It is very simple now. Notice the green for the topic and conclusion and then the yellow for the ideas. We haven't gotten to pink yet, which is details for the ideas!

Here is an idea for all of you kinder teachers out there! I did this each Monday with my kinders to review what they did over the weekend.  Get it now! Let me know if it works or not.. I am new to all of this! :)

Switching gears...{no tutoring today} I was in the classroom again today for about 4 hours. It is coming along.. I'm not showing pictures yet because it is not all "put together!" :) While working, my Blackberry buzzed alarming me of an email. I, of course, go and check it and much to my surprise it is a comment on my blog. I'm serious when I say I got so excited! hehe.. I'm a nerd.

It was Marlana from lil' country kindergarten! She wanted to share a header she made for my blog! I was so excited that someone would be willing to help me- since, I am still learning how to do all of this and of course, want me blog to be all cutsie like everyone else's. Thanks Marlana-- head over and check her blog out! She has a cute etsy store too-!

Time to focus on the Bachelorette!  ugh.. why do I like this show?!?!


  1. You are too sweet! This made my day! You did not need to post anything though. :) I love playing around with Photoshop, so it was fun!
