I am asking for prayers for the families of two teachers in my school district. A husband (5th grade teacher), wife (Assistant principal) and their one old son were killed in a car accident this weekend. Their 4 year old son is still in the hospital.The wife worked at my school my first two years of teaching. She was such a sweet lady. It's hard to believe this has happened. Please pray for strength and healing for their son. May God be glorified and lifted up even in this difficult time. I love how one of my coworkers said it, "Father in heaven, You know exactly what we need at the moment we need it. So I ask that You would send Your peace, love and healing to those who need it now. Amen"

Hold Me Now by Hillsong

On that day when I see
All that You have for me
When I see You face to face
There surrounded by Your grace

All my fear is swept away
In the light of your embrace
When Your love is all I need
And forever I am free

Where the streets are made of gold
In Your presence healed and whole
Let the songs of heaven rise to you alone

No weeping, no hurt or pain
No suffering You hold me now
You hold me now
No darkness no sick or lame
No hiding You hold me now,
You hold me now

In this life I will stand
Through my joy and my pain
Knowing there's a greater day
There's a hope that never fails

When Your name is lifted high
And forever praises rise
For the glory of Your Name
I'm believing for the day

When the wars and violence cease
All creation lives in peace
Let the songs of heaven rise to you alone

For eternity
All my heart will give
All the glory to Your name

Construction Theme

Our theme next year is Under "Kid"struction. We had an addition added to our school and the rest of the old building is being renovated. Here are a few things I have made for my class next year. If you have any ideas for me please let me know.

This morning I went to a training for the DRA2 kit. We have used Rigby in the past and that's all I've ever know. I think I will know my student better because of DRA. I think the information you receive from DRA is so valuable.

What leveling system do you use? How do you like it?

BTW I will be crusin' to the Bahamas Saturday. I am super excited and I need to relax after this school year. Hope you are having a restful summer!

o-FISH-ally 2nd Graders

Here we are at the last day of school. I am excited for Summer but I am going to miss my sweet students. I saw this cute idea on the internet and I decided to use goldfish instead of Swedish fish. They turned out really cute!
