I have been busy the last two week. We have been reading and writing like maniacs. Some of my students have made such growth this year, I am so proud of all their hard work.

In grade 2 we are working on problems and solutions.

I have about six weeks of school left. It will be bittersweet. The school is closing and the teachers are all moving on to another school. I do not have a job yet for next school year. I a hopeful something will happen before the year ends. I am keeping the faith!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
