Happy Mother's Day

Matt and I love our moms so much. Even though we are far apart, they are always close to our heart. Thanks for all that you do and we can't wait to back with you both this summer! Xoxo

A Thursday

Yesterday, my students did mock interviews. I had a meeting after school. I went to the gym. I went to happy hour and had a lot of fun. I also finished The Pillars of the Earth. 
This happened...
And then later on this happened...

Happy Friday, everyone!

A Tuesday

School is nearing the end. I went to the gym. I sat outside with the dogs and read. Then Matt came home and we talked and enjoyed the weather. When we came in, I played with Butters and the bear for ten minutes and laughed. Then Matt put on this bandana and I laughed a lot more.

April Poetry Month

April was national poetry month! We did a lot of different poetry activities with the students to try and prep them for their EOC exam but also to introduce them to the various aspects of poetry. Here are some of the things we did:
Sensory details and imagery
Figurative language
Tone and mood
Author's purpose
Rhetorical devices and protest poetry
Found poetry
Blackout poetry

Take a look at some of the great things my students created! I was so proud of the protest poems they created. I hope you are able to read them!

May Day

Happy May! Xo
