|a nice shot of my husband with his eyes closed. Ha!|
On another note, my first graders are doing better than ever! I am so proud of their progress! It's that time of year when we are on to harder topics and more work, and they are just relishing it (most of them)! I am so glad! We are working hard on money, and that is SUCH a doozy for first graders. It's all good til we start combining.... So, it has been practice, practice, practice for us. We use this little rhyme to remember who's on what:
Lincoln penny, Roosevelt dime, Jefferson nickle, One more time! I know I certainly need a refresher once in a while-LOL! Does anyone else use this?
On the fun side, we made some adorable cookies and wrote about our favorite kinds of cookies. I am pretty sure I got this idea from Teacher Wife . Love it! They made a darling bulletin board.
|These are so cute, right??|
And, of course you know we had to make snowflakes--Even though it's been a nice 60 degrees here for the past few days. LOL! Next up is making our hot chocolate mugs. I can't wait for this one! :)
On the personal front, my husband and I began Nutrisystem last Tuesday......I am bound and determined to finally do this once and for all. *sigh* It's been a long week. Haha! The first few days I was pretty sure I was starving, but at this point, I think I am used to it! I'm already seeing a loss! Woo hoo!!
So, what were your New Year's Resolutions, and how are they coming along??
