This week seems to have flown by. We have been having so much fun in our class this week, that I've barely had time to think. Two days in a row, I could not find my phone. On Wednesday, I put it in the pocket of my lunch box and then returned my lunch box to the fridge at school and forgot all about it. Yesterday, I left it at home and didn't realize until lunch time that I didn't have it. I can't believe how dependent I am on such a small thing. Anyway that little incident makes me think of this song....
This is the Stuff by Francesca Battistelli.
It was my background music all week! Needless to say, I am truly blessed with the most wonderful class this year.
Onto all the FUN Stuff!!!

Last, but not least, (sorry no photo) my class did something truly wonderful and amazing. I have a boy in my class this year who is "hospital/homebound" because he battling Leukemia. His name is Julian and he is quite an amazing kid. He is a friend of my sons and so we have used SKYPE to have a virtual playdate at home. I had the idea, to do this with my class. After many calls texts, I was able to get it accomplished. This week My whole class got to Video Chat with Julian. He had written them a letter about things he liked to do and asked them what they liked. I had each child write an answer to Julian on an Index card. After lunch, we "called" Julian. He got to see us, and we got to see him. It was so great! Hopefully we can do it again soon.
