Tell Me Something Good

As I was blog stalking last night, I came across this great linky- Tell Me Something Good from Rowdy in First Grade! At the beginning of the year, I find that there is a lot of stress and complaining from teachers in the lunch room about various things. So when I came across this linky, my eyes lit up and I got excited. Time to share some positive things. All you have to do to link up is share one thing positive from school and one thing positive from home.

One Positive Thing From School
I have the sweetest class. They are really good kids who want to do well and learn. All week we have been working on understanding Main Idea and Details. Today the kids walked into class first thing in the morning and asked me if we were going to be doing Main Idea and Details again. I said yes, we have an activity on that today. All of a sudden, two boys high-fived each other and said, "YEESSS!" How cute is that? Must have done something right this week!!!

One Positive Thing From Home
My husband is coming home from a week long business trip today! Boy, have we missed him! And my son (who just started kindergarten) received the Student of the Month Award for his class, passed his first sight word test and reached his first Accelerated Reader goal. Now that is something to celebrate!

Have a great weekend everyone! Make sure to link up and share all your good things. I can't wait to read all about them.


  1. Don't you just LOVE that feeling when the kids are excited about Reading! I watched two of my sixth graders fist bump on Friday when I said we had 15 minutes of Read to Self. LOVE LOVE LOVE that!
    Congratulations to your son for being Student of the Month!!
