If you were a fly on the wall in my room, you would get dizzy. And exhausted. Things go up, down and sideways. Often.
The way I choose to carry on, is by letting lots of it roll right off (most of the time) and taking time to stop and celebrate the amazing that weaves its way through everything.
So this week, I celebrate PROUD. The beaming smiles and the bursting hearts.
“We are reading all those books together!”
Building challenges on Thursday. “We built this land!”
“Hey! I can read this book by myself!”
“I spelled all of these words by myself!” (* teluskoop is my personal favourite!)
“Look Ms. Gelson – there is a heart here too. I spotted it!”
The smile of a girl reading a book she never thought she’d read independently.
These proud smiles made my week!
Thank you to Ruth Ayres and the #celebratelu community!
Being part of a community that regularly shares gratitude and celebrations truly transforms my weeks.
Joyful, contagious, stunning, lovely, true…
Wonderful words Lisa! Thank you!
Oh, those smiles make my heart lighter too, Carrie. Those are celebrations true. Thanks for sharing!
How can anything be wrong with smiles like these?
Reading your post brought back some sweet memories of time spent in the classroom pre-retirement.
These are such lucky children to have YOU as their teacher, Carrie!
Very kind. I find a lot of joy here.
Proud! So much love too. As always, thank you, Carrie, for spreading such apparent joy. I particularly love that city.
Isn’t it fantastic? Such creative building teamwork.
I so love seeing the wonderful learning happening and the proud, happy faces in your classroom. They bring such a huge smile to my face. I really have to practice that “roll right off” stance when it comes to a few circumstances in my life.
It is important to adopt this philosophy! Not always easy. But important.
Love these smiles! No wonder you’re proud. Thanks for sharing!
Lots of proud smiles in my room this week. I celebrate each one!
A child taking pride in his/her accomplishments is a beautiful sight. I am celebrating together with you.
These smiles of pride are pretty contagious!
Amazingness certainly HAS weaved its way through your room this week. So awesome!
Thanks Jennifer! It has.
Love those wonderful smiles on the faces of the little ones. Special times in your classroom are happening!
We are moving along that’s for sure!
These faces make me so happy.
🙂 Me too!
So many things to celebrate! Your posts always make me smile.
Thank you Alyssa!
