This is a first... I'm in my classroom with one of the school's laptops, so I figured I'd write a few things here and there. I had planned to start earlier, but I just didn't have time. Story of my life. My kiddos just got back from library and are eating snack. In a few minutes, I'm giving them their spelling test ("ar" words). They've been noisy this week - I think it's the weather. It's been rainy and dreary and they haven't been able to go out to play at lunch. They're expending their energy in my classroom instead. More later.
