March Reading

This has been a slow read month for me. I have been just too danged busy with the twins turning 6, preparing for school carnival, Twins club events and state paper work.. that I have had no energy for my own reading.

This is what I have!

America's Cheapest Family- Steve and Annette Economides
Pretty self explainable.. plus they have been on TODAY enough times! The are well known for their frugal-ness and they are willing to share the info. Many of their ideas go way to frugal for me.. but I was able to gather some nifty info! Easy read!

The Coupon Mom's guide to cutting your grocery bills in half- Stephanie Nelson
This lady has made a name for herself for figuring out how to use coupons. Good guide for those who are coupon illiterate...

More writing..

I was volunteering today and Madeline's teacher Mrs. Tobin handed me this paper to read. She had been absent on Monday after she fell and injured her knee over the weekend. She had the substitute give a writing assignment about a time the kids got hurt.

Madeline wrote.

I was walking home fome bob evins and I tript on a bump. I skekapt my ney and it starid to bled. My mom put a band aid on my ney.

I had to laugh because that happened on Sunday night so the *injury* was the fresh on her mind. The blood she was referring to was just the tiniest amount from the skin rubbing off.. But ointment and bandages were necessary to make her world better!

Tonights Homework...Handwriting


The assignment was write a story.. Start the story, "Spring is when..."

Spring is when the flouwers blom. It is when we go swimming. I can ride my bicke. You can ride your sckodor. You can ride your forweler.

Andrew's was to write about what you like to do on a rainy day!

On a rain day I stay in my hows. I lay in my bed. I lay on my wolo(wall) and do nuthing.
