Over the hump

I just want to express my gratitude to everyone for their kind words and prayers. It means so much to me. I truly felt that my cup runneth over last week with all the support I felt from everyone. The dreaded day came and went and to be honest, I feel so much better.

I should be posting a new Poetry Journal Edition, but alas, it is not complete. I have this little Spin & Match worksheet/game for phonics to share. Students spin to select a letter, then try to use the letter to complete a word. 

I hope you have had a wonderful Mother's Day and a great week!

  2. Shannon,
    I am so glad that this day is almost over for you. It is always a difficult day for me, because I never married and had children, which has always been my heart's desire. I can only imagine the pain that becomes fresh again when you have experienced the loss you have.
    On a 'gladder' note, I wanted to thank, thank, thank you for ALL of the things you have shared. Your graciousness has enabled me to improve my centers each rotation....thank you (also on behalf of my kiddos! :) )

  3. I apologize for scrolling too quickly through your last blog in Google Reader. :( I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that God surrounds you with those who can listen, understand, support and pray for you during this time. Your blog is wonderful and your creativity and generousity are amazing. May God comfort and hold you through this challenging time in your life! Thanks, Nancy
