What does 6' 4" mean to a kindergartner?  Nothing until you make a life size Abe Lincoln for them to stand next to!  We have a life size Abe in our hallway this week.  Today, we got to take our picture next to Abe.  The kids were so excited to stand next to him.  I printed out their picture for them to glue onto their Me and Abe writing.  The kids also got measured so they can record their height on their paper.

Here are a couple pictures of my kids with Abe.

 Have a great weekend!

Snow, Snow Go Away!

Is it really February 17th?!  I

In the last 31 possible school days, we have missed 8! We have more snow/ice on the way tonight.  My class has only been outside for recess once since December.  Right now we have over 5 inches of snow sitting on our playground.  When it all melts it will be one big mud pit!  We need a mulch delivery but who know when that will happen.  When it does happen, it usually takes another week for someone to come spread it across the playground.  I guess we will go out by the end of March.  I treasure the 30 minutes of recess outside.  I get to see people who are my size and have short choppy conversations while controlling crazy kids.

We got to celebrate Valentine's Day today!  We didn't have school last Thursday or Friday due to the 10 inches of snow that we got.  So, today we had a very quick valentine exchange.  One of my kids made an owl valentine box that I am in love with!
I also wanted to show you some of the pictures that I took last week that we put in our Valentine cards to our loved ones.  The kids loved doing these pictures.

I can't wait to see if we get the snow that they are calling for.  Will we have another day off tomorrow?

Have a great Tuesday!
