James and the Giant Peach

I am OVERLY excited, some may even call it giddy about the week of James and the Giant peach.  We have been reading the book for a while, but this week is JAMES WEEK. 
Monday - Read to chapter 33 and make connections in the book.  This was fun because they were able to hear me make funny and serious connections to the book.  We were even able to make connections with The Wizard of Oz - they LOVED that.  In every station of their "Daily 6" they had a different activity than normal.  So far it is going well!  I was able to send the "FOLLOW THAT PEACH" paper home today.  As I said, we are so excited to dedicate our week to James and can not wait to show the other nice things we will be doing in class.

The start to something new!

I am so excited to have finally made a blog myself.  I have been wondering how I can keep all of my ideas and pictures in one location and here it is!  This year has been more than I could ever imagine it to be.  It is only the 5th week of school and I think I am in paradise.
