gotta love kids

Story #1: This story takes place during Silent Reading time. The kids were reading all around the room and I was working at my desk.

4th grade boy (walks up to Mrs. Morey): Mrs. Morey - watch this! (puts two fingers to his chin and POPS A ZIT)

Mrs. Morey: asdlkfhklsjeblrkjbskdljfb - GROSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

And we've only been in school for one week.

Story #2: This story takes place during math while I'm walking around teaching and the kids are at their desks.

Mrs. Morey: Now, why is place value important?

Girl: (gets up out of her desk, comes over to me and puts her hand on my stomach): WOW! Mrs. Morey, your stomach is getting huge! (this causes all the girls in the class to start talking about how much I've grown in just one week, thus losing their focus on the math lesson.)

Mrs. Morey: Thank you, now would you please go sit back down. (of course I look at my stomach and notice it even feels bigger!)

Apparently I'm growing exponentially now - Maybe my weight will reach the one thousands place in the place value chart.

First day of school!

Today was the first day of school so I wanted to put some pictures of my classroom. I put this together with the help of my mom, sister, and Eli in a couple days. Lets just say I have been living here for the past week and a half since I got to Utah! Sorry about the bad quality of the pictures - my old camera isn't behaving very well. Back to planning!
