Talking pups past and present

Boatright, T. Scott.jpg

As I prepared to attend Ruston Park and Recreation’s Department Furry Fun Walk, last week I started what has turned out to be a two-part column about the dogs I’ve been fortunate enough to have in my life.
We return to those thoughts talking about the black Chihuahua named People (because he thought he was) that my family got when I was about 15 years old.

When ADD gets out for summer

in
BROOKS, BRENDA.jpg

Today I stepped outside to a cool breeze blowing constantly right through as the sunny skies encroached warmth across my deck.
I remembered days like this. When I was teaching, these were the days after last recess, I would bring my class in long enough to complete our bell work on the board.
However instead of beginning the introduction for the next day's lessons, we would go back to the playground.
The kids would play, and I would sit on the swings and swing. It was some of the best time spent; our bonding time as teacher and students.

Kindergarten news
The Kindergarteners at Choudrant Elementary are very busy learning. We are reading words and sentences. We can write and illustrate our own sentences too.  We are counting, writing numbers, measuring and weighing objects.   
We just celebrated our 100th day of school. We read stories, made a 100th day crown, made a necklace with 100 fruit loops, made a snack with 100 items and counted to 100 by ones, fives and tens.
We also enjoyed learning about groundhogs and hope since he did not see his shadow that spring will come quickly!
