The Best Part of Me

Hi Friends!
Have you read this book?  If not, I highly recommend it.
It's called The Best Part of Me by Wendy Ewald. 
The book has black and white photographs of the parts that children chose as their best part and handwritten essays about them.  The book inspired me to do something similar with my class. 
Here are a couple of my students' completed essays and our hallways display:

New Year's Goal: LOSE WEIGHT!

Hi Friends,
Those of you that know me personally, know that EVERY new year I resolve to lose weight.  In fact, I plan a weight loss challenge at my school every January.  I'm usually good for the first month or so and then I fall back into my BAD eating habits.  I don't know why I do it.  I just do it EVERY time.  Maybe this year will be different.

My daughter has great eating habits.  Here's a picture of her when she was training for a fitness competition.  She has more will power than I do. 

My goal for 2014 is to get healthy.  I need to take baby steps so I don't give up so easily.  Wish me luck!
