I teach 1st grade and just love it! It is my favorite age, and I love teaching my kids to love literature and books and learning. So, of course, we read like a zillion books a day, but every once in a while one really gets their attention and makes them think. Today we read Fly Away Home by Eve Bunting, one of my favorites! After the story the class broke out into a spontaneous round of applause. It just melted my heart how much they connected with it. Those are the moments I love!
On a knitting note, I knitted that Flicca like crazy! I'm almost done with the back-- maybe by tomorrow!
