The BEST First Day Ever!

I think that I had the best first day ever in all of my MANY years of teaching! I just love my class! We did lots of team building and getting to know you activities today and not much meat. I learned a LOT about some of my kiddos! One of them is even PERFECT (just ask him!) One of the things we did today was the sticky note posters - you know which ones. They are all over Pinterest. Here are ours... No surprises on this one. We learn new stuff every day. We learn new things. To get ready…

This Or That?

I was in charge of the activity this week for Young Women. We were welcoming two new girls into the group so I wanted to plan some kind of get-to-know-you game. I found a couple ideas online and decided to combine them. First, I took a bunch of tongue depressors and wrote two words, one on each end, which the girls would have to choose between.
