Four Success Stories/Can't Buy Me Love

The past two days have seen the achievement of FOUR educational milestones! Jake, Phoenix, Rocco, and Kayla K. have demonstrated mastery of the Soundabet. These are the spine-tingling moments that I most enjoy each year—they're up there with seeing a kid ride a bicycle on two wheels, smiling, for the first time ever. So there's a happy teacher in Room 2 these days. Four happy kids, too!

I got a photo of each one holding the timer to show how much time remained in the top chamber. They each have a King's Card proudly up by their names, too. It won't be long before the King's good wife is up in those places, too, I'm thinking.

Look at these happy kids!

On another note, Ian's dad gave me a DVD of Saturday night's performance. We saw it today in kindergarten. It was fun for all of us to see what we looked like from the audience floor. Pat also shared with me a private link to his Youtube video of the class singing "Can't Buy Me Love." When I get home, I'll post it here at the bottom of this post so you can see it.

They were good. But wait till March 13. At that performance for the School Board you will see something better. I hope you can come to see it. There's a barbecue before at 5:30. Michelle Lorenz has helped to organize it and there is a sign up sheet on the classroom door. Please join us for an evening of food and music.

Youtube video to be posted here by nightfall:

Be well.
