Tell Me Something Good

Jennifer over at Rowdy in First Grade always know exactly when to host this wonderful linky.  After last week, we all need to think positively.  Click on the picture to link up with her!

At Home:

My husband and I are starting up a small group with our church.  Our first official meeting is tomorrow.  I am excited to create a space to talk and experience life with other people.  
I am also happy to be a part of a church community that is compassionate and willing to serve others.  After last week's tragedies in Boston and West, Sunday morning was helpful.

At School:

My first graders are progressing and maturing into little second graders.  
Just the other day, I overhead one of my students who was in a disagreement say "Okay…I'm going to act mature like a 2nd grader would do and go sit over here to do my work.  It'll be okay."  This was coming from a student who usually has a hard time "giving up" the battle.
I had just had a talk with my class about what mature meant to a first grader!  It makes me so proud when they are able to take what they learn and apply it to new situations.

Thank you, Jennifer, for the reminder to think positively.  This was definitely harder than I thought it would be tonight.  Tomorrow I will be looking for something good.

Well, what are you waiting for? 
Tell me something good that happened.
Leave me a comment below.

Happy Hump Day, blog friends!

  1. Its always good to stop and think about the positive... so easy to get wrapped up in the negative sometime. Yesterday my kiddos were working on their Earth Day projects. I had one girl change her project from making a poster about saving the Earth to writing a song. She wrote the majority of her song yesterday and came to sing it to me. It was the most beautiful and sweet song I have heard yet... she put a beautiful tune to how she can help the Earth and her voice was amazing! Put me in a great mood!

    Thanks for helping us focus on the good! Have a great day!


    Three Cheers for First Grade!

  4. That's so exciting that you are starting a small group. I hope that it goes well and is a meaningful time of fellowship and study.

    Also, that's so great that your students are maturing so well! I too am starting to see changes in my firsties as second grade approaches.

    Have a great weekend!
