However, my love for linky parties PREVAILS..
So I am here, a day late.
Oh Doodle Bugs Teaching! You make it super difficult to NOT Five 4 Friday it up.....
Creations by Me: I am addicted to making things. I see stuff on t.v, online or things other teachers and/or friends have and I am like " I can totally make that.
This week it was candles.
I made them to match my beach-themed room.
And boy do they smell WONDERFUL.
Look how cute they look on my bookshelf!
The Last Year of 20- This week I entered my last year in my 20's. I am excited! I was most excited that my kiddos were excited. They were all sneaky signing a card for me.
Which means they were completely obvious and I pretended not to notice.
It was super cute.
They also told me happy birthday every time I, or they re-entered the room.
And they were soooooo excited for cake.
I love them!!
Also, thank you to EVERYONE for the Birthday Wishes!!!
Talk About it Tuesday- Last week I WAS CONVINCED on a specific theory about my favorite past time, HIMYM. (read it here).
This week, I am only kinda convinced.
I think I am going through some weird denial/grief/what will i watch Monday nights at 8 EST.
Only 3 Episodes remain.
This week wiped out my "gutso" to Talk About it Tuesday.
So look for a double whammy next week that includes my thoughts on "DAISY".
All I will say is, "I knew it!" and "Thank you Linus"
On a brighter note......
BIG BANG THEORY WAS RENEWED FOR 3 MORE SEASONS.
*Does Happy Dance*
MSA Mania- Now to the reason I am EXHAUSTED. We have been MSA testing for the last two weeks. This week was my turn. Due to the population I service, I have to read the whole test-VERBATIM. Which is fine.....
But this year they passed a rule that we can only provide the verbatim reading accommodation to groups of 5 max.
I have 7 3rd graders in one class and 9 4th graders in the other.
Do the math...
3rd grade test- 5 sessions x 2 groups to rotate
4th grade test- 5 sessions X 2 groups to rotate
+ 2 allotted test days + 1 extra morning.
I will not get into any details beyond the general because I can't.
But I will share a quote posted by Christi at Ms. Fultz Corner:
Use your imagination as to why this was amusing to me. If you know me in real life, you know how I feel about testing and testing.
and testing.... because now we have to do district testing pretty soon.
Pi Day Friday- After a week full of testing, I welcomed this Friday with OPEN ARMS. And lucky for nerdy folks like me, it was Pi Day.
Yes, I bought Pi for my kiddos.
Yes I put a pie in the office for teachers and staff.
Yes I bought an extra pie and left it at home to cook and eat this weekend.
To cook and eat today.
Check out this picture of one pie-lovin kiddo!
Excuse my laziness. I did not feel like looking for a stache' in my files today so "enter" random orange text box!
Confession: I suck at secrets. I am too frickin transparent.
But I am trying hard to keep this one under wraps.
Let's just say, that I will be making some "changes" in the near future....
A new "look" if you will.
What are your thoughts?
While you ponder on that, make sure you head over to Doodle Bugs Teaching and "get up on" the Five 4 Friday Linky! I love reading/being nosey/getting ideas from your posts.
What are you waiting for?
