Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

More Tales From the First Grade

Me: (hands out paper for students to make a booklet for their mothers)

Me: Let's read this sentence together: "When my mom sees my room she says..."

Me: Now your job is to finish the sentence. Think about a time your mom walked into your room. What did she say to you?

After giving them time to think and write, I ask a few students to share what they have written.

Me: Yes, Cole?

Cole: She says, "CLEAN YOUR ROOM!!!"

Me: Oh yes, I'll bet a lot of you hear that!

Ryan: (too excited to raise his hand) "Yes, but my mom adds the "F" word!"

Me: Casually walks over to Ryan to make sure he has not added the "F" word to his paper!

Days to teach 1st Graders: 9
