Takin’ A Break From Teachin’

HOWDY folks! It’s been a long, long, long time since I’ve written a post on my blog….who knows maybe no one even noticed I hadn’t posted in a while.
 Anyhow, total sadsville that I won’t be sharin’ any 2013/2014 classroom tour or a caaaute and fun craftivity and great parties in the classroom this school year with y’all.
I decided to take a break from teachin’ this year to take on a new opportunity in the “SALES” world (Telecom/Wireless Industry).
It’s been a rollercoaster thus far. I’m not going to lie and say I don’t miss TEACHIN’….because I DO… something terrible!
BUT I also LOVE my new position and I’m settling into my role as an Account Executive. I do travel a bit and do lots of entertaining.
I love meeting new people and making new friendships is a skill that comes easy to me.
Thank you Jesus!
I have to admit I was crazy emotional at the beginning of the school year! It was really difficult not being in my classroom and gettin’ things organized and ready for the up and coming dual firsties.
It’s also HARD to not have the inside scoop of who your child’s teacher will be.
Thank goodness my children started the school year in an exceptional school for our transition. They still wish for me to go back to teachin!
Well I don’t blame them….life is good when you’re a teacher’s kid. I miss that too!
I miss the goodies in the break room, the smiling children roaming the halls and it’s weird that
I miss that “SCHOOL SMELL”! HA!
 I miss my school babies shouting “Mrs. Hubble”! I miss the billion hugs I received daily from the students that I had the honor of being a part of their
education journey!
Not all is lost at Glitzy In 1st Grade…I still plan to share activities I do with my own kiddos at home.
I can’t seem to shake out the TEACHER within me… poor babies!
This isn’t goodbye…it’s more like a “To Be Continued”…I still don’t know how this chapter will end or what I want to be when I grow up.
 All I know is that I have followed the path the good Lord has set before me and I don’t question his WILL!
He knows what’s BEST for me….I trust that with all my HEART! I am THANKFUL for all my BLESSINGS!
I have a quick Homework Activity share:
Jaxzers is a 1st grader this year. We do a Word HUNT (In honor of hunting season) game and I extend this activitiy with a Tree Map.
Word HUNT:
1.He looks for the 8 blue cards around the house
2. Collects them & reads them to me (if he can't read them, I hide them again)
3. He sorts them on a Tree Map by vowel sounds or word families (my table from my classroom)
4. Last he writes his words NEATLY!!!
He struggles with writing so we focus a lot on formation.
On Thursday he has to come up with his own words for each vowel sound and classify them in his tree map he started at the beginning of the week.
Each day he has a new set of 8 words to HUNT in order to be exposed to more than just his suggested word list…I throw in blends too!
So there you have it...

   BAM: I hit reading, phonics and writing in one activity. It takes all of 10 minutes to get this done.

He spends the longest time with writing because he doesn’t like to write neat.
BUT he’s figured out how to please this mama and he gets it done the first time around.
 Or no extra computer time, or hangin’ out watchin’ football with dad!

Here is a picture of my three youngest on their
First Day Of's hard to believe I have one in college now...time flies!

Cherish every moment with your babies!

PROUD moments!

Love that she drives me around now...the GOOD life!

Wishin' y'all a FANTASTIC 2013-2014 school year!
Get your TEACH ON!!!
