Is it really mid October???

Yeah, it's really mid-October.  I can't really believe it.  The past month and a half has whizzed by.
Like I've mentioned recently, I have an "active" class this year.  It's really taxing my teaching knowledge,  I can't simply go back to my usual routines and activities with this group. 
So I'm trying something new.
I'm taking this whole weekend to redo my planning so that I can start doing some effective teaching.
I'll update you as I go along. 
This is going to be an interesting journey so stay tuned...
On another topic, I wanted to let you in on a bit of a secret.
One of my co-workers, Rozana,  has a teaching blog and she's been a bit secretive about it.
I walk past her room every day and I'm always inspired by the artwork she does with her grade one class.  Click here to view one of my previous posts about her work.

Well Halloween is approaching, and so I've been getting more activity on my blog around this Halloween art idea.  Click Here to go to Rozana's blog - ARTventurous.


  1. These are simply wonderful. I'm looking forward to doing them in my classroom too. Isn't that Joy's Cowley's "In a Dark, Dark Wood?" We love her in my room. Most of my shared reading big books are by her.
