I have been teaching second grade for 10 years...second graders are THE BEST!! I am a product of this school district having gone to PDS, Sierra Vista Middle, and Buena High School. After high school I went to NAU and graduated in 1999 with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. While there I met my husband and we married in 2000. We now have 3 children; Connor- entering 3rd Grade, Kyleigh-2nd Grade and in my class this year :), and our youngest, Caden who will be 2 in November. I recieved my Master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy in 2008 and my National Board Certification in November of 2009. I am so excited to work with your child!
Today I finished my Daily 5 book box display. I have always wanted to use book boxes but couldn't justify the expense of magazine file boxes. The cheapest I've seen them was $2.50 each. Times that by 26 kiddos and well, you get the idea. So you can imagine my excitement when I found these cuties in the Target dollar spot. Yay!! I picked up 30 of them and ran back to school eager to put them in their chosen spots. I decided to organize them all in a pattern because it's prettier that way and I love me a pretty display! BUT, you all know what happens as soon as the kiddos get a hold of them. They will be shoved back onto the shelf in any old order. To keep them in their place I labeled the shelf with an identical name tag that's on the book box. Now all the kiddos have to do is find their name and my pretty display will stay all year long!
