I had a high-school graduation party to go to over the weekend. It was a special one for me. I started baby-sitting this young man about 15 years ago. Fast-forward a few years and he is now my nephew! My husband is the youngest in his family (by a lot!) so I inherited 12 nieces and nephews when we got married.
When I taught second grade, my previous students would always ask me if I would ever change grade levels. I would tell them no, because second graders were the only kids in the school shorter than me. Fifth graders are too tall! Totally not the reason, but they got a kick out of it.
It's around that time of year when everyone needs a pick-me-up! What better way to do it than with a Spirit Week at school? My students get a kick out of this every year and we try to switch it up so that we have a variety of themes.
