You should not miss this giveaway!!!
Jivey's got K-1, 2-3, and 4-6 giveaways!!!

We had a little visitor today. 
We were getting ready for recess...
One of my little firsties came up and said, "Mrs. Kempf, I have a mouse in my jacket.".
Me, thinking that it was a stuffed animal said, "Oh, let me see!".
She had put her coat in her backpack before school and got it out to put on for recess.
Here comes the CUTEST little mouse you have ever seen.
Luckily, I am not afraid of little creatures. I found out some of my coworkers are soooooooo afraid! They couldn't even look at him.
Well, we put him in an aquarium and kept him there until the end of the day. Then we let him go in our school garden.
I had already sent a picture to my husband. His response was, "YOU CANNOT KEEP THE MOUSE!!!"
Oh well!
What an exciting day in first grade!

We will be writing about this in Writing Workshop! Stay tuned!

I updated my May Song. It looks so much cuter.

  1. Ok, he is so cute, but my first question is, WHY WAS THERE A MOUSE IN THAT CHILD'S POCKET?!??!?! :-P

    1. She works with horses all the time. She must have put her coat down and the he thought, "What a nice bed!". It was so funny! I am surprised nobody ran out screaming! :)

  2. That reminds me of the first school I worked at. It was out in the middle of the country so we had mice that would venture in every once and a while. I had pet mice in middle school so I would just scoop them up and take the class down the hall. We would let it go outside. The other teachers would be squealing and could not believe what I had just done!

    1. If it were any bigger, I wouldn't have been. :)
