Have a great weekend!~

Notes are going home today about our Valentine Party and their snack calendar. I am hoping to post some of the wonderful things we have been doing in our classroom soon. We have a new area up that features a craft completed by each child. I do one myself and show it to the children. I then provide them with the materials to make it. It is all how the child see it and it really helps me see their skill level. Our board is labeled- It's the process Not the Product. I have never believed in having all children's work look the same because all children are not the same. They are different ages, at different learning levels and you know what - it is ok. That is the way it should be.  I love my little ones and if the "I love you Ms. Tammy" that I hear daily is any indication, they love me too!

Sweet Friends

This was given to us by some very sweet friends of ours. Just a little something to brighten our day. I can't tell you the times I would come home and she would have left a little something for us. And once when we were going through a difficult time, they did a most amazing blessing for our family. I wish there would have been some way I could have known what was going on. I feel like I should have been there for them more. I just had no idea and my heart breaks for them. I feel really guilty that perhaps I was to caught up in my everyday life to really be the type of friend she needed.They have gone above and beyond what most would do and now they are going through some very difficult times in their family. I would like to ask everyone to pray for this family.

100th Day of Learning

Today my classroom was full of OLD people!  We celebrated 100 days of learning and each child dressed as if they were 100 years old. So cute!!!

Report Cards

Report cards will be going home Monday. Please continue to work with your child nightly on his/her blends and letter sounds.

Laundry Room Redo


We all enter our laundry room so much, well at least I do. I just became tired of those plain, ugly, beige walls. We begin with some teal colored paint to brighten up the small space and added a back wall of black chalkboard paint. However, I wasn't liking the black paint, so my sweet husband painted that wall teal too! Much better! We painted the shelf white and added 3 items that I received from family at Christmas and wow what a difference! I might actually like going in there now.

Tokens of love

Thanks for the beautiful gifts! I also received two beautiful mugs not pictured- we were using them for hot chocolate. And my beautiful letter H ornament was already on the tree!
