Hello...tap, tap, tap.... is this thing on?

Hello, Hello?  Is anyone out there?  Soooo..... I am attempting to join the bloggy world, which is comical because technology and I do not get along very well.  I do not know what I am doing, but I am willing to learn and give it a whirl.  Please bear with me.

Now, just a little bit about me..... I am a teacher and this is my 13th year in kindergarten. You would think I would have at least made it to 1st or 2nd grade by now, huh?  :)  I love watching kids learn to read and kindergarten is such a fun place!  Those light bulb moments when they "get it" are priceless. I believe reading is one of the most important life skills a person can have and I love making a difference by being a part of teaching little ones to read.  I am married to a wonderful man who is also an amazing father to our 2 little girls.  They are his little princesses.  Bless his heart......he is surrounded by dresses, hair bows and pink!   My oldest is 6 years old and in the first grade.  I love having her at school with me, but hate that she is growing up so fast!  My youngest is 2 years old and into everything!  She is a mess, but is the sweetest little girl.  They both bring so much joy into our lives. 

I love teaching kids to read, but I also want them to enjoy reading.  There are so, so many great books out there and I love to share them.  That is why I am starting this blog.  I hope to be able to share good books and teaching materials or crafts to support the literature.  My hope is that this blog can become a resource for teachers and parents to share a love of books with their children.  

So....... look for some good stuff coming soon and stop back by often! 
If you've read this far THANK YOU!!!!

  2. Hey Michelle!
    Love the pumpkins! And I love when ANY lesson is tied to book (character). The book boxes I started are PHENOMENAL! If only I found blogs last year!!!!
