Sweet Sentences and a Sweet Girl

The other night while I was cooking dinner Ella was cutting paper. I thought she was just cutting random things, but she was actually cutting rectangles. Then she made her very own sentence with her sight word. She asked me how to spell car and chain, but she did the rest!! I was soooo proud!!!

 The first sentence says "Who is in the car."  The second one says "The dog is on the chain".

Our Project

For Valentine's Day, my kiddos made their teachers a clipboard.  This is a great project that even little hands can do.  It is very easy and turns out very cute. 

First, get a plain clip board, scrapbook paper that coordinates, fabric glue, mod podge, and matching ribbon.

The kids tear the paper and glue on the clipboard.

Make sure to cover the whole clipboard by overlapping the paper.  Do this on both sides!!

 Next, you cover it with one coat of Mod Podge and let dry!

Add ribbons to the top and there it is! :)

Rover the Mutt

The first graders and second graders at Braden's school put on the play ARF!  It was very cute and they did such a good job.  Braden was Rover the mutt.  I did not realize that he was the star of the show!! He had to recite lines from Shakesphere in the play and he was the dog that won the dog show!! He has always been a great actor!! The plays that they do at school are always over the top, and this was no exception. 

 Braden is down on the floor in the front!

 Reciting his Shakesphere lines!

My sweet Rover the mutt!!
