A Teeny Tiny Teacher and Miss Kindergarten are hosting an Eleven in Eleven party. Here is a look back at 2011.
11. Favorite movie you watched:
Have to put two here. The baseball fanatic in me loved Moneyball. Billy Beane, also played in Portland, so a little piece of my hometown added to the charm. Also, the final Harry Potter, the movie was great, but seeing it at midnight with all the fans in costume made the experience all the better!
Leverage! Oh I how I love it. The characters crack me up and it is filmed in Portland.
Spaghetti Factory! Yum! Yum! The pesto dressing is my favorite.
Blogging! I have blog stalked for a while, and finally started my own blog:-)
7. Favorite gift you got:
Students know me so well!
Not in any way educational, but it was one of the first things I pinned....before I was an addict.
photography art residency was such a great experience. Arts are so important for kids! My chickadees' final projects are masterpieces and I am still trying to figure out how to get copies for my house.
During the summer, I challenged myself and my students to read a book a day, during the summer. I got a little behind at one point, but caught up and completed the challenge. During 2011, I read 112 books! Sarah Addison Allen has become one of my new favorite authors.
Every spring, I coach 4th and 5th grade volleyball. This picture was from our last game day. Such a fun group of girls! A couple of them, I started coaching in 3rd grade and taught some of them as 1st graders! Bittersweet last game:-)
Camping at Timothy Lake...the whole weekend was so fun...even without real toilets!
In all the reading I have done, I do not read much "classic" literature and nothing by Jane Austin. So I am going to read at least 4 novels that fall into that category, and one of them a Jane Austin novel.
Bring on 2012!
