QR Codes for Listening to Reading

As you all know I am a kindergarten teacher in addition to running this little business of mine! This blog post goes out to all those teachers out their getting ready for back to school! I wanted to share a process I have been using to make recordings of books in my classroom library! 

This process easily enables my students to be self sufficient while utilizing technology to advance their fluency levels!!! I'm sure I'm late to the QR party but I am having a party!!!!!!! :)))) I might have been up until midnight making recordings of my library books!!! 

Here is a video model for all my visual learners out there, like I said, probably not perfect, and there is probably an easier way, but this is what is working for me! :) 

I can see SOOOOO MANNNNYYYY OPPORTUNITIES to use QR codes! I'm playing with the idea of having a few parents record themselves reading books so their kids can hear them during listening to reading!!! How COOL is that??? Anyway. Enjoy, I'm sure I'll be up until midnight again making recordings!!!! HAHA.

The only thing I can say about this wedding was that you could feel god's love. It was in the air. You could smell how happy these precious people are to be around friends and family. I was absolutely honored that these ladies allowed me to be a part of their day. At last. Enjoy 

Love, LVK

I like you and I know why.
I like you because you are a good person to like.
I like you because when I tell you something special, you know it’s special
And you remember it a long, long time.
You say, “Remember when you told me something special?”
And both of us remember

When I think something is important
you think it’s important too
We have good ideas
When I say something funny, you laugh
I think I’m funny and you think I’m funny too
Hah-hah!

I like you because you know where I’m ticklish
And you don’t tickle me there except just a little tiny bit sometimes
But if you do, then I know where to tickle you too

You know how to be silly
That’s why I like you
Boy are you ever silly
I never met anybody sillier than me till I met you
I like you because you know when it’s time to stop being silly
Maybe day after tomorrow
Maybe never
Too late, it’s a quarter past silly!

Sometimes we don’t say a word
We snurkle under fences
We spy secret places
If I am a goofus on the roofus hollering my head off
You are one too
If I pretend I am drowning, you pretend you are saving me
If I am getting ready to pop a paper bag,
then you are getting ready to jump
HOORAY!

That’s because you really like me
You really like me, don’t you?
And I really like you back
And you like me back and I like you back
And that’s the way we keep on going every day

If you go away, then I go away too
or if I stay home, you send me a postcard
You don’t just say “Well see you around sometime, bye”
I like you a lot because of that
If I go away, I send you a postcard too
And I like you because if we go away together
And if we are in Grand Central Station
And if I get lost
Then you are the one that is yelling for me

And I like you because when I am feeling sad
You don’t always cheer me up right away
Sometimes it is better to be sad
You can’t stand the others being so googly and gaggly every single minute
You want to think about things
It takes time
I like you because if I am mad at you
Then you are mad at me too
It’s awful when the other person isn’t
They are so nice and hoo-hoo you could just about punch them in the nose

I like you because if I think I am going to throw up
then you are really sorry
You don’t just pretend you are busy looking at the birdies and all that
You say, maybe it was something you ate
You say, the same thing happened to me one time
And the same thing did

If you find two four-leaf clovers, you give me one
If I find four, I give you two
If we only find three, we keep on looking
Sometimes we have good luck, and sometimes we don’t
If I break my arm, and if you break your arm too
Then it’s fun to have a broken arm
I tell you about mine, you tell me about yours
We are both sorry
We write our names and draw pictures
We show everybody and they wish they had a broken arm too

I like you because I don’t know why but
Everything that happens is nicer with you
I can’t remember when I didn’t like you
It must have been lonesome then
I like you because because because
I forget why I like you but I do

So many reasons
On the 4th of July I like you because it’s the 4th of July
On the fifth of July, I like you too
If you and I had some drums and some horns and some horses
If we had some hats and some flags and some fire engines
We could be a HOLIDAY
We could be a CELEBRATION
We could be a WHOLE PARADE

See what I mean?
Even if it was the 999th of July
Even if it was August
Even if it was way down at the bottom of November
Even if it was no place particular in January
I would go on choosing you
And you would go on choosing me
Over and over again

That’s how it would happen every time
I don’t know why
I guess I don’t know why I really like you
Why do I like you
I guess I just like you
I guess I just like you because I like you.

A New York Wedding

This wedding was super special to Will and I not only because it was our first OUT OF STATE WEDDING, but that it was our dear, sweet friends tying the knot! 

Brigitte and Ryan are some of our first "couple friends." We get along so well and we can spend hours and hours chatting and shutting down the local Mexican food restaurant! One of the many things I love about being a photographer is that is job is such a gift. I love giving the gift of memories in the form of photographs.

I cannot think of a better way to show my friends I love them then to give them these special pictures of their special day. Did I mention how beautiful this wedding was? I have only had a few weddings where I had to wipe my tears from behind the camera while capturing the vows and kisses! :) Brigitte and Ryan, we love you guys so much! Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of sharing in your special day.  We can't wait for our next couples date!

Welcome to the NEW LVK

I am so excited to roll out my new redesign!  What a summer it has been! 

I have a lot of jobs and loves in life. This website is dedicated to my life. My husband, my puppies, my home and most importantly my family and my husband again. What a support these people have been through the last 2 years of my life. If you don't already know I just finished my master's degree in Special Education with an emphasis in applied behavioral analysis! 

Long story short this website isn't just for my photography. Its for and about life. I am going to be using the blog to document the trials and tribulations of being a teacher, photographer, home renovator, puppy mommy and anything else that seems fun and interesting! 

Pop around my sight and tell me what you think! If you have an idea for a post let me know! Check back often because the corner of the web is my new and improved virtual hobby corner!

Love, LVK
