I am out sick today, but I wish I wasn't. It's far too soon in the school year to be sick. I guess it's like getting first year teacher sickness: you catch everything that even floats through the school. All the same, I am brand new to QAE and even though I've taught second grade before, moving from the South has been a bizarre cultural shift. People call each other by their first names here. Who knew? In the South we call each other by last name so intensely, that even some of my friends call me "Martin". This has been a change when meeting and talking with parents and other adults, so I apologize now if my first instinct isn't to introduce myself by my first name. The Southern in me isn't used to this more casual atmosphere.
If you go to my homework resources I have added new list of resources that I found on Pinterest of Free and Paid for educational websites for your children to use at home, if you so choose. Again Raz Kids is being set-up, as is ST Math. As soon as I know their log-ins (if they don't already know it), I will be giving it to them, so be on the look out.
Talk again soon,
