A Unique Fashion Accessory

Here's a cute one:

Here's the "normal" way to wear a lanyard pass while traveling to and from the bathroom:

Here's how this cute one came walking into the classroom with the lanyard pass!  A new fashion statement I guess!  She was laughing so hard when I took this photo that it took several tries but her cuteness still shines through!  Priceless!  :)  Just an ordinary day in grade 3!!

A story of the headlines...

A recent conversation during computer class:

"Can we wear the headlines Miss Schreffler?"
"What?  You mean headphones?  Why?  There's no sound with what you are doing."
"I know, they look cool!"

The cool ones!

A cute one!

another cute one!
We shall see what new adventures occur as a result of the classroom teachers teaching their own computer classes this year!  We are in for a lot of funny moments!

One of these things is not like the other...

Actually we are all wearing the same color patterns but I am simply vertically challenged!  We laughed pretty hard when we saw each person come down the stairs from staff devotions dressed fairly similar.  Great minds think alike I guess.  :)

A friend came to visit...

I was surprised one morning by hearing my name called and then turning around to find one of my students holding a turtle!   Meet Still...
Still, the Turtle, named as such because he holds very still.
and his owners!
Proud owners of Still!

I think Still truly enjoyed his day in 3rd grade!  It was a blast to have him visit and I hope he brings along some hand sanitizer next time!  :)

First two weeks of school...some observations

The new name of our school: International Christian School of Vienna.  Such a strong name to reflect our true international identity.

  1. Our kiddos make us smile and we missed their laughter over the summer.
  2. These kids are HILARIOUS!  Their observations on life and school are pretty funny!
  3. The transition from 2nd grade to 3rd grade seems to be a huge jump and the parents are a bit overwhelmed!
  4. We forgot how tired teaching makes us!
  5. In second and third grade we have 25 students (11 and 14 respectively) and they are from 16 different countries!  We are blessed to be reaching so many nations with the love of the Lord!

Cooking: stuffed bell peppers and halved potatoes
Eating: cantaloupe and almonds (not at the same time)
Googleing : paper piecing patterns
Learning: all about diabetes as one of Amanda's students has it
Listening:  Sabrina
