Talking Pets

I'm also using this silly little app to teach kindergarten. It's called My Talking Pet. It's simple, fast, cheap and easy and the kids are mesmerized. They listen to the dogs much better than they listen to me. I'm sure the novelty will wear off eventually but I'll enjoy 100% engagement for as long as it lasts. Hopefully it won't create long term confusion about talking dogs.

my therapy

Mixed media for mixed emotions. After being out of the classroom for fifteen years I learned yesterday that I have been reassigned to an elementary classroom. I enjoy teaching. Just haven't taught little ones in fifteen years. But then teaching adults isn't a lot different in some regards. At least the little ones are sweet and not politically motivated.
Rory AKA Moose enjoyed Carl's shoes while she visited. She is at home with Cara now. Sweet puppy but whoosh! What a lot of work! She is a Komondor and  Great Pyrenees mix. She's only 8 weeks old in this picture. She should weigh over 100 pounds when grown. Care Bear and Travis are prepared for mass destruction ( and a lot of puppy loving!)
