IS is SPRING BREAK YET? Don't Blink..Freebie..

I LOVE the Song by Kenny Chesney
"Don't Blink"
Don't blink
Just like that you're six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you're twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don't blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your "better half"
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don't blink...
Well.....  I  BLINKED!
I am still taking down Christmas Decor
and it's almost MARCH!
Wait! Slow down! I AM NOT READY!

So...I am slowing things down in my classroom.
We are almost done with the third quarter
of first grade.
We have "phonemic awarenessed" ourselves daily.
We practice word families.
We have learned more grammar rules than I ever dreamed.
We write 1,2,3,4,5 times a day.
We read every half hour.
We know more math than our parents.
We know about Presidents, animals, weather conditions, 
We know HOW TO, Who, What,When, Where, & Why
(Well...some most of us do)
We have TESTED & RETESTED...
And now...we are SSSlowing things down!
Time to take a breath & practice
 using ALL of this new first grade information!
My kiddos have come a LONG way.
Very proud of them!
As we finish the next 3 months..
DON'T BLINK!
It will be gone before you know it!
( PS...Is is SPRING BREAK yet?) :)
Happy Monday Tuesday!
Thanks for hanging in there all the way to HERE!!!
FREEBIE FOR YOU!
