The first week of the new school year is finished, and I’m already in love with this new group of students. They’re a bright bunch, enthusiastic and excited about learning, and they like being together as a class. And even though it’s hard for a beginning-of-the-year second grader to sit on the rug for any extended period of time, they are willing to do so with the least amount of wiggling, in order to listen to a book a day! We are reading all the Strega Nona books, one a day, in anticipation and in celebration of Tomie dePaola’s 75th birthday on September 15th.
And now it’s a 3-day weekend (wahoo!), and I’m off to spend some time with Precious Grandboy!
