I volunteer in my son’s third grade class several times a week. Although it’s shocking to me that not all teachers like parent volunteers, this year my son’s teacher loves when parents help out. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that my little guy has had his fair share of struggles in school (before an ADHD diagnosis last year) and I am so happy to report that this year he is finally on the right track. It’s been so wonderful to see him blossom and his teacher is a very big part of his growth. Seriously, I love her and I am so thankful that she lets me come in and spend time with the kids every week.
Since I am in the classroom so often, I have gotten to know all of the kids and spending time with them is one of the highlights of my week. It’s a great group of kids and as I already mentioned, their teacher is great. In addition to my time, I try to help out in other ways. I bring in tissues, supplies and other things from time to time & since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, I thought it would be fun if I made this Easy Four Leaf Clover Paper Plate Craft to help decorate the classroom.
