Grandpa and Grandma Jones donated 30 beanie babies to my classroom. My first graders get so excited to use them. One of their fast finisher things they can do is choose a beanie baby to read to. They love this. They pick a book out of my library, and position the beanie baby on their lap, (they have to make sure the beanie baby can see the book, of course!!) and they read to them. It is so cute to see how they get so excited about books! I was so fortunate to have my grandma and grandpa donate those to my classroom. They came in last year to my fourth graders and brought them all a beanie baby. My fourth graders ended up calling my grandpa, Grandpa Beanie Baby the whole year. They loved my grandparents!
I get to end my perfect day coming home to my dog Jeter. It is sad because he is in his kennel all day. He is the kind of dog that loves being outside, so we try to take him places in the evenings so he can get his energy out. He is definitely a dog that needs lots of attention.
