It’s only hours until 2013, so I figured it was close enough to link up with the January Currently.
My husband and I settled in a town that is about 2 1/2 hours away from his family and 5 hours from mine. Family has always been an important part of my life, but now that I have a child of my own, it means even more to see my daughter with them. This year we were able to see both families and I couldn’t be happier!
Last time I chose the word courage. It has been my word all year: courage to try new things and branch out of my comfort zone.
This time I chose the word happy.
I need to remember to surround myself with the people who make me happy and find more time for the people that bring happiness to my life.
Look at this great book sharing idea for Valentine's Day! It's called Blind Date with a Book. Students can wrap up a good book and write a description on the outside. Then others can choose a new book based on the description!A BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK! 😍 Wrap the books and write a description on each of them- have the kiddos read the descriptions and pick a book for a blind reading date! How memorable! What an amazing idea for #valentinesday! Thank you for sharing Jessica! I see so many teachers trying this out! @thegreenelementaryteacher LOVE! #books #reading #library #blinddate ...
