So, while most of you were reuniting with your pajamas, I was at school today. Not that I am jealous, or anything. Really. I'm not. Okay, a little. PLUS I had bus duty. This means that I had to be in my spot and ready at 7:25 for that first early bus.
As I have mentioned before, our school is doing a project where everyone is reading the same book, The Trumpet of the Swan. I was reading aloud our chapter today, and came to the term of field glasses. Pausing, I asked the children if they had a guess of what field glasses were. One of my kiddos raised his hand and said, "They're like binoculars." You could have knocked me over with a feather. I was not expecting those words to come out of his mouth!
During history, we read about Martin Luther King, Jr. I love the book Martin's Big Words.
Not only are the pictures incredible, buy I think that it tells his story well for little ones.
Lastly, I want to take a poll. The linky party of walking a day in each other's shoes has caused me to do some serious thinking: Do you have to eat lunch with your kids, or is it a duty free time? I really want to know! I have this sinking feeling that I am one of the few who have to eat lunch with my kids. Granted, it is at a different table, but still in the loud cafeteria all the same.
