First Week Fun

Howdy All!!
WOW!!! One week down already!  We had such an awesome first week. I love my new group of VIK's  so much already! I am so looking forward to my 34th year as a teacher!!!  I wanted to share a few quick pics of our first week.  Most are from our beginning of the year Camping Unit.  I've shared that already, but I'll put another link at the end of this post because I added a couple of things. First off, our cute hallway to welcome the kids!

Similar to what we did several years ago!  But still cute!! Kids' pics included some camping props!!

We got to know each other around our camp fire, made smores and made a little hands on visual.

We Organized our thinking about manners and behavior.

This is just a very small peek into all we have done so far!  There is so much more to come as we learn side by side!

OK!  Stay tuned!  We have just begun!!!
I hope your first week was just as great! 
Thanks for taking time out to take a peek into our little window of wonder!

May You Have Enough...and a Beginning of Year Camping Unit!

Howdy All!
I took a little break from blogging this summer.  I can't believe how many e-mails I received asking what was going on because they hadn't heard from me in a while. In all honesty, I needed to take a couple of months to rejuvenate---faith, family, friends, and home. I was able to visit my sweet boys, take a fun trip with the hubs, spend time with my mom, have some wonderful catch up time with my niece and her fam from Cali, do some touching up on our home, and....adopt a the sweetest little chocolate lab from our local animal rescue center.    I have been so blessed with enough. I want to focus on that exact thought. "May you have enough." 

May YOU have enough! 
May YOU have enough!

Now that I feel centered, and focused again, I am ready to share my new beginning of the year unit.  Our new theme for the BOY is camping.  We have done a camping theme a couple of time before, but it was for open house or end of year fun.  This BOY unit includes many set up ideas, fun "get to know you" activities, some goal setting, math exploration, and science discoveries.  A couple of the ideas I pulled from my old units so you might recognize them, but they have a fresh new BOY look.   Here are a few pics from the 149 page unit!

I am so happy to be able to share with you all again.  Thank you to all those who expressed concern for my absence.  Thank you for stopping by this little Window On Wonder!!  I'll be back soon!!
