It's so fun watching Maddie learn to read, write, do math, make friends, and enjoy her classes and teachers. I've been able to go in and help during Language Arts centers on Friday mornings. It's strange to be on this side of things- I'm the MOM! What? It's crazy how fast your job changes in life. People ask me if I miss teaching. It's a hard question to answer- I'm completely happy at home with my girls teaching them every day all day. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I feel blessed to be a stay at home mom. It's definitely a full time job, much harder and more rewarding than teaching at a school. On the other hand, being in the classroom brings back sweet memories from being a 2nd grade teacher. I have to say, God's timing is perfect. For those years teaching, I was blessed, and now being a mom, I feel even more privileged!!
This week Maddie's after school art class had an art show. Her owl piece was framed!!
(Maddie's picture is the one on top).
First grade also had their Thanksgiving Feast this week. Maddie's class were the Pilgrims.
Her favorite part was the salty crackers :)
The Indians made a toy gift for the Pilgrims.
Maddie made this doll for her Indian friend.
The kids recited a poem and enjoyed a meal together. What a cute class!
