Welcome Back!

Greetings Blogger Readers! Room 108 is back in session at Horace Mann School and the children came back with a ton of energy and great things to say about their spring break experiences. I enjoyed the break immensely and was fortunate to be able to embrace the baseball season with my family at a couple spring training "Cactus League" baseball games in Arizona. The weather here in Illinois is not exactly baseball friendly but it will soon look up and the sun will be shining again!

A big thanks and "stamp of approval" goes out to the students that took the initiative (or parent initiative) to work in their Creative Writing packet over the break. All of your children have creativity inside and it is a pleasure to read anything your child is willing to share. I want to also thank the families who have helped their child complete and return the Reading Logs. I am glad to know the log has become such a motivational tool!

I must draw your attention to a new feature of the Room 108 blog. On the left hand column you will see a slideshow linked from a "Flickr" account created for our classroom. This slideshow will display photos taken from parents and myself and updated as often as pictures are available. (Big THANK YOU goes out to the creator and main picture suppliers) If you have any Room 108 pictures you would like to share on the blog please e-mail them directly to me.

Thanks to all you blog readers out there and please keep up the e-mail comments, posts, and questions!! See you on the blacktop!
