Valentine Recap and Two Little Cuties!!

Boy, do kids love Valentine's Day!  My two valentines are 12 and 2.  They are my pride and joy:)  Of course, I also have a ton of love for my hubby as well.  But look how adorable they are!  I could just eat them up.

Today my daughter totally blew me away by writing a short story that was amazing.  She totally just wrote it for fun because she was inspired by a song.  Where does she get this gift?  I have NO idea!  Definitely not from me.  I am so proud to be her mom.  On the other hand, my son is sleeping in his own bed for the second night in a row with no tears.  I may be on a roll!

So here is a little recap on my valentine comprehension activities.  In all honesty, I was totally blown away by my students.  I could not have asked them to perform any better.  There are a few tweaks that I would still like to make........I always feel like I could make things better.  I am not sure if that is a blessing or a curse.  

I am so tickled!  These are examples of two students who worked accurately and fairly independent!  Always a bonus:

Here are examples of my kindergarten comprehension assessments.  I did them "one on one" only because I wanted to know what they knew without any influence of their peers.  I was super happy with the results.  The little guy that I am concerned about did great with the visual supports and is beginning to understand the meaning of story grammar independently.  Yay!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by:)  I would love to hear your your thoughts and comments!
