Happy, happy, happy!

Is everybody happy? I have not had the best of days, but when I think of Duck Dynasty...I smile! Isn't that ridiculous?

Have you heard about finger lights? I have read a couple of blog posts about the tiny flashlights and decided to give them a try. I found a set of 40 for $7.99 with free shipping on Amazon. My hopes were that the kiddos would:

1. stay focused during reading group
2. keep up
3. not fall out of their chair (Can we say ADHD!)

For the most part I was not dissapointed. My kiddos love using the finger lights during reading groups. Most of them seem to try harder when it's their turn to read aloud.

I have discovered Kid Snippets on YouTube. I use them as brain breaks or transitions sometimes for my kiddos. These short little clips are a huge hit with my class. The "Math Class" snippet is a hoot, but the "Mean School Nurse" clip is my kiddo's favorite.



  1. It is not ridiculous to get happy, happy, happy when thinking of Duck Dynasty!! It has gotten me through some long Wednesdays just thinking about a new episode being on!
