    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!

Sick and Manic Monday

Whatever this plague is that I am dealing with, I still have it today!  haha.  Unfortunately it has to be on the busiest day of the week…and the most important one.  Mondays always seem to help set the tone for the rest of the week, and at this rate, my kiddos are going to be nuts with a sick teacher.  I sure hope I can pep up!  This week, the students and I will be focusing and celebrating the letter Jj. 

 To do this, we will do our normal weekly activities with the letter (writing, finding it in sentences, drawing pictures of things that start with J, and listening to it in many many stories).  However, to really give Jj our recognition, the kids will be wearing jerseys to school on Thursday and doing some writing about what jersey they decided to sport.  They wear them throughout the course of the day and we do lots of different activities with them to pay the letter Jj some homage! haha.   It should be an interesting day…and week.  I can’t wait for it to be over already (at least until I start feeling a litter better!).
