Saturday night was a night of wrestling for Mr. Ashley, Kamren, Blake, Dylan, Seth and myself. We enjoyed 2 1/2 hours of non-stop wrestling and entertainment. There was a lot of screaming, yelling and an occasional boo at the bad guys. How did these students earn the trip to see wrestling? They showed up at the Christmas short story night and entered their name five times for the chance to win tickets. Why did they get five chances? All of these young men finished their word folder which contained more than 1,000 words and 600 word phrases. No that wasn't a misprint-1,ooo words and 600 word phrases. Yes, hard work does pay off!

Starting a classroom blog

Hello, my name is Ryan Williams and I am in the process of starting a first grade blog. If you don't know I am in my 11th year of teaching first grade. I have some big plans that I want to incorporate into my blog such as: video lessons, stories from parents and student writing. Stay tuned for more information.
