  1. Goodness gracious-the busyness of your life this month!! Have fun!

    What is World Book Night?

    I don't teach science, but I'm thinking since I teach 5th grade english and I've just started a poetry unit today (NEVER taught poetry before) that I just might teach them how to write haikus and have them write a haiku about the earth. :)

    The creative thoughts are flowing right now....
