I am a hummingbird ENTHUSIAST. I lam fascinated by these little fluttering beauties! I love the "humming-buzz" that is heard before it is seen, and I completely enjoy watching these hyperactive little birds chasing one another, fighting over a place at the feeder, and zooming through the air like a fighter jet appearing out of nowhere! I suppose it reminds me a lot of a middle school classroom: the sound of students interacting, the frequent and often constant movement, and the delight I find in watching them interact with one another.
It is SUCH a busy time of year! With STAAR tests approaching next week, and End-of-Course tests following, all students should have work to do, from projects, studying, and reading independently. Please keep them moving forward with their learning these last few weeks left before summer. We will also be working on our class book next month, including recipes, poems, travel articles and more. I'm hoping to finish it soon.
