Wiped Out

Aye, aye, aye what a week! Two days of PD, two days of firsties and now carayzeeeee weather. My power has gone out twice so far and now we have a tornado watch in the Northeast. Aye dios mio or OMG in English!

My class is very sweet and all about the talking. Thank goodness I found a great pin on Pinterest with visuals of the voice levels. Voice Level Chart Yes it worked on day 2...well that and a few seat changes.

Then we had a visit from the Gingerbread Man who got loose in our school. (Thanks to my teacher partner, Cathy).

Woohoo we had a great time. So next week our classy buddy, Chippy Chimpanzee, will make a visit. More on him later.

After thinking about my sweet group. I realized that 80% percent of my class is comprised of second language learners. You could say I have the UN in my class. They come from the US, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Mexico which is pretty standard for us. But this year I also have Sweden, Africa, England, Russia, Korean/Japanese and Indian represented in my class. I'm already thinking about ways to celebrate all of their cultures.

Oh my its getting dark out there again. Signing off till later. I'm feeling a bit like Dorothy right now.
