Today is my first day of school with my students. I was so excited that I hardly slept a wink - the usual for me on the eve of day one of a new school year. I have the same class in fourth grade this year that I had in third grade last year. They are the nicest bunch of students, and I can't wait to hear all about their summer adventures. It's going to be a great year!!
The other day I noticed that I had 10 followers of my blog. And soon after that there were 12 followers! First I laughed because I didn't really expect anyone to follow me except my sister. But I have to say I've "met" some really terrific people through blog-land. The next thought that popped into my head when I saw that there were 10 is "doin' the double-digit-dance!" The double digit dance is something I look forward to with my fourth graders. Most of them start the year at age 9, but somewhere in the year they turn 10 - so we do the double-digit-dance to celebrate. Goofy, I know, but 9 and 10 year olds (and one 45 year old) really enjoy that kind of thing.
Since I didn't expect more than one follower, I believe I will celebrate this fun surprise. So I think that I will need to host a giveaway to celebrate the double-digit-dance. I will be back soon with more info. and pictures of the giveaway items.
Have a great day, wherever you might be spending it. I'll be in room 227 having a blast!
