    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Monday Monday

Yay for Mondays.  haha.  It is my first regular full time day today teaching my students, and I can’t wait to get it going.  There are not a whole lot of special activities going on today, but rather a return to normalcy and routines for my students, which may become a little bit difficult for some of them to readjust to after so many weeks of craziness.  We will be working a lot on the letter V today and start learning some new sight words.  Then, we will spend the majority of the rest of the week beginning to talk about spring and rainbows (even though we will be getting snow today and tomorrow! haha) in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day and the first day of spring. 

In another couple weeks, we will also be having round up (where the young preschoolers come and check out the kindergarten classrooms and teachers to prepare for coming to school).  Our theme is bunnies, so my students and I will be working hard to do a lot of bunny art and bunny themed activities in the upcoming weeks to get ready for this.  It should be a spring-tastic good time for the next few weeks and hopefully will help to get rid of the winter feel!
