Shawna's 12 Questions For Me:

3. What is your favorite subject to teach? I love teaching all aspects of Language Arts.
4. What is your favorite picture book to read to your class? Tough call! One of my faves is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr.
5. Why did you start blogging? I'm a fairly new blogger- I started my blog in mid-August. I had discovered several great teaching blogs over the summer, and felt that I could contribute ideas gleaned from my 15+ years of teaching.
6. How many students do you have in your class? I started the year with 10 boys & 10 girls {20 kids}; I'm now holding steady at 21 students... 
7. What is a typical lunch that you bring to school? I am soooo lazy about my own lunches, that a typical lunch for me is crackers!

10. Who is your favorite Sesame Street character? Why? I like Grover! I love his voice and he's cute and one of my favourite books growing up was The Monster At The End Of This Book.
