As I reflected on our time in first grade this week, I continued to notice the large amounts of time we spent teaching one another and working with other students. Whether it was first graders working with one another or students of differing ages, there was a lot of group work taking place. What a great theme for the week, huh? So, this post will be short and sweet so you can see the heart of our work this week as your first grader worked with others. As always, thanks for visiting our blog!

Kids Collaborating with Kids: As I mentioned earlier, I don’t feel like there is much to say about the great work we did this week as we collaborated with other students. Check out the photos and captions below and I you will learn everything you’d like to know about our week. Enjoy.
A Smile for You: I am not posting a photo of my dog this week. However, I do have a photo related to my dog. (I hope I don’t bore you with dog information!) During the four months I have had Rosie, I have had some challenges with her behavior. One example is that she howls. Seriously. Boy was I surprised to learn that she howls while I am gone! I started using many different strategies to help decrease the howling and decided to do some reading too. I ordered a previously owned book about behavioral dog problems and when I got it in the mail, I laughed really, really hard. I noticed that the spine of the book had clearly been chewed on by a dog. Ironic, huh? So . . . I hope this photo makes you smile too, since it did for me. Have a great weekend! Thanks for visiting our blog this week.
