Colorful Colorado

Hi everyone!  I made it to Colorful Colorado.  St. Pius X School in Aurora to be exact.  

First off, I have to thank Antonio the class elf for giving me such a warm welcome!  Prior to the students arriving on Monday morning, Antonio filled me on what goes on with the Littles {as Ms. Solano calls them} in the class.

He told me that they would make me laugh, that I would get great treats, I would have to sing {not howl like usual} and that I would get a lot of snuggles.  He didn’t lie.  There were days I laughed so hard I was crying!  

Ms. Solano shared her hot cocoa with me on Polar Express Day...

 ...and it snowed while I was here.  I have decided that I need to come back and hit the slopes.  It's true what they say about the weather here ~ if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes ~ it snowed all morning long and by lunchtime there was almost 5 inches on the ground.  And guess what? By dismissal time, the sun was shining and it had already started to melt. 
 i got to visit the tech lab with the Littles.  They let me have my own computer so I could work on Starfall {my favorite}.  

I was lucky enough to make it into the class Christmas photo.

I loved every bit of my stay with the Littles at St. Pius X Elementary School! 
But I have to admit I am just as ready as you are for Christmas break.  The Littles in Ms. Solano’s class have kept me quite busy! 

My adventure continues...see you soon!

Jet Wag

I left on a jet plane (they didn't know when I'd be back again).

When I arrived, I had a pretty bad case of Jet Wag.

The smell of frybread and beans woke me right up. 

The loving students of the White Mountain Apache Tribe enjoyed teaching me about their culture. 

They showed me a cradleboard.

They also taught me about burden baskets.

I picked out a beaded necklace to keep as a reminder of my time spent on the reservation.

But soon, it was time to get back to learning.  I played Math games and tangrams with the kids. 

I was VERY popular for Read with Someone.

The first grade reading buddies also loved me.

I helped the robot league assemble "Bob"

More than anything, I inspired their writing.


From a humble, brown box beginning, Frosty has transformed our classroom and is now a revered friend. No doubt he will live on in our hearts.

Greetings From Arizona!

Hello, friends!
I'm here in Arizona for my first stop as I take on the globe! I've made lots of new friends and learned about one of Arizona's wild creatures called the Javalina.  I even learned how to play the alto xylophone!  My new friends wrote a book about my visit that I wanted to share with you!


I can't wait to arrive at my next stop to meet even more new friends!

   My Tour Dates - Coming Soon!!

    Please go check out my introduction post over at The 3AM Teacher's Blog!!

Just click on my picture above to find out more about what I will be doing this upcoming year!!!
Thank you for visiting & following my new blog...Created by...who else, 
The 3AM Teacher...What a gal!!
She has been hard at work designing her new store, sprucing up her own blog, creating my blog & working on custom graphics. I think she might be having Facebook withdrawals....SERIOUSLY!!
But, when she gets focused....she is like stealth ninja in cyberspace - getting the job done while staying hidden in the shadows. When she emerges from her focus fest - everyone better watch out! She tends to want to make herself known by doing some amazing things!! 
Like creating this blog for me!!

I look forward to meeting you all!!!
