More Phonemic Awareness

This is my last week of my maternity leave. It's bittersweet. I miss my kiddos, but I KNOW that I am going to miss my little guy terribly. I've gotten loads of emails and comments that have told me to enjoy every minute because it goes so fast. I will be honest, late at night and during bouts of screaming, time has moved slowly; however, all the's been almost three months. I just can't even believe it!
Coop can't believe it either!
To try to get back in the swing of Kindergarten, I am going to try to put a few posts together during Cooper's short naps throughout the day. This afternoon I got an email from Karen Strawser requesting Diagraph/Blend Cards to use during Phonemic Awareness instruction. They will compliment Michael Heggerty's program very well. You can see more about his program here...

So, this evening during my much beloved show, The Voice. I worked on Diagraph/Blend flashcards. I will try to post again later in the week, if I can. Thanks again for all the kind comments and emails. You truly have no idea how much I appreciate it. Now it's 9PM...time to sleep for a couple of hours before someone demands 5oz of liquid gold.
