Today was a Tuesday, but it felt like a Monday.
Oh my goodness...my class was super talkative today! We had several interruptions like an H1N1 clinic and a few other things and it all added up to a crazy day.
This is the kind of day it was....
First of all, I tell my class that their pencils should always be long enough for them to hold in their fist and stick into the pencil sharpener. If it is any shorter, it needs to be thrown away. Besides getting stuck in the sharpener, you can't write with a tiny pencil! Well, as I'm cleaning up the room at the end of the day, this is what I found on the floor.
Can you believe that?? I had to laugh though. Somebody worked hard to get it that tiny.
In my class we also have "Unfinished Work" folders. If a child has work they haven't gotten done, they are supposed to put it in this folder. Any time we have free time they are supposed to get it out and work on it.
Anyway...today I reminded the class several times to make sure they got everything in their "Unfinished Work" folder done. One little boy was over in the reading center so I asked him if he was done with everything. He assured me that he was! I even asked to see his folder and sure enough, it was empty. So I assumed he didn't have any work to do.
After school was over, I just so happened to look in his desk and oh.my.word. THIS is what I pulled out....
No wonder he didn't have anything in his folder!! It was all just stuffed in his desk! I think you get the idea of the kind of day it was! haha
Tomorrow is Picture Day. They will all come to school dressed really cute and I will want to hug them all.
On another note, here are a few other things I was thinking about today...
1-These are my new favorite things...
I love them! Have you ever tried them? You can just keep them in your purse and brush your teeth anywhere!
2-Laura is taking snowboarding this semester! She is going to school up there in the mountains where there are lots of ski resorts, so she thought she should learn how to join in the fun. Tonight is her first class. Ya'll please pray that she doesn't hurt or kill herself! She's never even skiied before (except one time!) Snowboarding is HARD!
3-At church on Sunday, one of my friends had on a really cute hand-stamped silver necklace with her kids' names on it. Everyone was admiring it and wondering where she got it. She said she got it at a Stella and Dot party. But then today I saw these really cute necklaces on Little Birdie Secrets.
They came from The Vintage Pearl. In fact, The Vintage Pearl is doing a give-away for them! Check it out if you're interested! :)
4-I got Steve P90X for Christmas. He has been doing it everyday and is doing so good. He is dedicated! Me...I'm just trying to go walking or get on the treadmill several times a week!
How are your New Year's Resolutions coming along??
