Catching up (again)

Ella had a fantastic weekend last weekend full of movie night, birthday parties, Taekwondo, and then a Superbowl party at Helen and Ron’s.  The weekend was great.  This week, something new was introduced in Ella’s classroom.  They call it “reader’s workshop”.  Basically, the teacher puts 5 books in each kid’s bin thing and then the kids get 10 minutes a day to read their books.  Ella was so excited about this.  I think the teachers eventually help the kids figure out their “just right book”.  We’re so happy that Ella is so excited about reading.  Ella also started reading music this week during her drum lesson.  Check the video below.  She’s playing so slowly because she is actually reading each beat.
