Conferences & Fun Day of Reading

Fall conferences are over and this lady is exhausted!  It was grueling somewhat difficult to schedule conferences for all the parents at the times available.   But after scheduling and then rescheduling numerous times, I was able to meet with most of them.  Yeah!  

Yesterday I totally stole borrowed an idea from the awesome First Grade a la Carte blog.   I absolutely loved the idea of having an “Orange” You Glad You Can Read Day.  It was just too cute to pass up.  So I sent home a letter to my parents and do you know what!!!! my awesome group of parents helped make it a HUGE success!!!   My kiddos spent the ENTIRE day reading and of course snacking on a variety of orange munchies that the parents provided.  

I of course had a few other orange activities planned, but they were so stoked about reading to each other they didn’t even want to do them.  So what’s a teacher to do when your kids wanta read??   Gotta love it! 

Happy weekend!
