Wow - today was my first day with my new kindergarten class. I would have to say it is love at first sight. The kids are delightful. I have been busy making the room "mine." I will post pictures of my classroom this weekend.
And... I am feeling extra blessed. I entered a giveaway on one of my favorite blogs, Kinder Craze, for a huge bundle of cvc printables by A Differentiated Kindergarten. And... yes... I won. That kind of thing just doesn't happen to me! I am a happy camper.
Finally, some of you have been asking about the Valentine's Exchange. Yes... it is going to happen. I will post the details here on January 15th. Basically, you will need to email your mailing address to the special email address by January 29th. The exchange is open to all preschool, Pre-K and kindergarten classes. I will provide the email address on January 15th. Participating classes will mail one paper valentine to each of the twelve classes that follow them on the mailing list.
These exchanges have gotten very large and the only way I can come close to organizing them is to use a special email address for each one. (That means please do not email me at any other address about signing up for this year's Valentine Exchange.) The paper valentines should be mailed out to the twelve classes that follow yours on the mailing list starting Feb. 4th. Once again, I will offer teachers who want to send and receive 24 Valentines the opportunity to be on the list twice. Please follow this blog or "like" the GrowinginPreK Facebook page so you won't miss updates about the Valentine Exchange.
That's all for now.
