Last week Mommy posted the following comment on Facebook:
Just ordered Katelyn's first Christmas present! As exciting as her first Christmas was, this one's going to be even more exciting. I love it that she really understands what's going on now!
One of her friends, DeeDee (who has three daughters of her own), replied with some great gift buying advice. She said that she tries to get her girls, "Something they want, something they need, something to play with, and something to read." This little rhyme helps DeeDee narrow down what to buy for Christmas...and saves her from buyers remorse.
Mommy shared the rhyme with Daddy, and they both decided that it's something they'll aim to stick with. Apparently, they've already bought me "something to play with" and "something to read", so all they have left is to figure out what I really want and need!
My name is Rachel Moss and this is my 9th year of teaching. I love working with first graders! My hope is that this blog will be an effective way to let my students' parents see all of the learning that is taking place in our classroom each day.
