Getting Ready for Read Across America and a Fitting End to Dental Health Month

Next week our school (like many, many others) will be celebrating Read Across America.  Our wonderful librarian organizes fun school-wide events to promote reading and love of books.  So before everything gets started, I need to get my class door decorated.  This is the one time during the year that pretty much everyone in the school decorates their doors.  I really like my sweet students' art work to be on display.  This year we will be making birthday cats.
If you would like a FREE copy of this pattern click on the picture above.
After the students put their cat together they will write the titles of their favorite books on their cupcakes. 
The sign on the door simply says "Hooray! Hooray! for Dr. Seuss's Birthday"
The clip art for the cupcakes is from Creative Clips Digital Clip Art.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
If Read Across America is rolling in, that means Dental Health Month is heading out.  2013's Dental Health Month is one for the books in the Monroe house.  I had a big surprise when I picked  A  up after school today.
She has her first loose tooth!!!
As a first grade teacher I am totally prepared to deal with loose teeth, but as a mommy . . . no way.
I thought I had another year or two on this one.  I keep telling her to stop growing and she keeps telling me that I need to talk to God.  Believe me, with a comeback like that she ends and wins the conversation.
Oh well, next stop . . . Tooth Fairy Training.  Any suggestions?
Have a great rest of your week.
