The Kingdom at the End of the Driveway

We had a very inspiring local author come visit our school! His name is Jefferson Knapp. He is from right here in our good ol' Butler Country!! The kids just loved him!! He does school visits and talks about his books, he has 3 of the 6 in the series out right now!! He also tells the kids about how he got the idea for the books. I just had to buy all three books. My son is on the 3rd book and I just started reading the 1st book. I tell you what if you are an animal and adventure lover, these books are for you!! I think I will make these books my read aloud for next school year!! Check him out on Facebook at The Kingdom at the End of the Driveway!!

Candy Award Time!

Oh my gosh there are only 6 days of school left! With that in mind I got really hungry for candy!! Just joking, I don't eat candy!
This candy (more to come) will be for the candy end of the year awards I am making for my 3rd graders!! I just know they will get a kick out of the awards and enjoy the nice candy treat as well!

I am so excited to get started on my blog! This is going to be a learning process for me. I have no idea what I'm doing... But, I love reading blogs! I get so many good teaching ideas!! I feel I should start sharing my ideas with the world as well!!

I am so excited to take my 3rd graders to Prairie Rose tomorrow for our incentive field trip. Because of this lovely spring weather we're having in Kansas, we will be wearing our warm coats! I think the kids will not even notice how cold it is and they will just have a blast!

I will return tomorrow with the results of our winter/spring field trip!
