The ABCs of My Classroom

Dum da da dum! 

That's the sound of my heralds announcing my accomplishment. It's the "ABCs of Mrs. Kuhn's Classroom."  I plan on doing a fairy tale and fable theme in my room this year and I'm just getting into character.  I have spent the last week working on my classroom handbook and now it is finished.  

I created one 5 years ago and haven't done one since.  My computer broke, I lost all of my files and I didn't want to retype it all again.  I decided that this was the year I was going to redo it. Parents of third graders seemed more interested in the goings on in my classroom.  This time I will make sure that I save it on a flash drive so I never have to do that again from scratch. 

I toyed with the idea of making it reflect my theme, but I decided to keep it generic because I feel the need to change my theme each year.  Hopefully it contains all that a parent will need to know about how I run my class.

Homerun Showdown

On a completely unrelated topic, I went to go and see my son's movie it opened over the weekend.  Sounds glamorous right.  Not!  We went through hours of waiting in line at a cattle call audition, 4 callbacks, a promise of greatness, a day of shooting, and then we waited for 2 years for the film to come out.  All for a brief pan shot of my son in the outfield.  You couldn't even recognize his features.  He made some great plays while they were shooting.  They must be on a cutting room floor somewhere.    Oh well that's showbiz.  The movie was pretty good though.  It will be coming to video August 21st.



I will watch it when it comes out on video. Sorry I missed it on the BIG screen!
