I'm still in my pjs. I also just got a text from my older sister, Lisa, asking if I'm wearing pjs to my mom's tomorrow.
I had to take a moment and think about it for a second.
Ha ha! Yeah, right!
If she is, I am. The End. And if we end up taking a family photo, and we are the only two in pajamas, at least we'll be comfortable.
Tonight, I am off to church followed by a Mexican feast with the hubby's family. It's tradition. Tacos, enchiladas, tamales, chips and salsa, guacamole, and apple pie.
My twin and her kids arrive tomorrow! I can't wait! Her hubby is staying home to work so I feel a little bit bad for my hubby . . . I am trying to think of a toy that I can get him to keep him busy . . .
As for right now, I'm linking up with Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge for a fun little linky.
1. I Don't Use a Clipchart. Please Don't Throw Rotten Tomatoes.
No one threw a tomato, thank goodness. The only way I'd appreciate that, ever, is if you whipped it up into salsa or bruschetta first. And then, also, you'd need to throw a chip or a slice of toasted baguette my way.
I was really happy that a lot of teachers were interested in this "gold tags" behavior system and adapted it to fit their needs. If you're trying it out, is it working for you? Or are you ready to throw a tomato?
2. Angry Birds
Well, seeing as how I just re-ran this post last week, I'd say we're all a little sick of it. Not to mention, the hubs was super excited because they just released a new game or version or points or birds or towers or who knows and he won't stop playing it.
It's another post on a management tool that I use in my classroom.
I'm beginning to wonder if you think I have control issues?
This post was all about having a Mystery Student to maintain order in your classroom.
Um, yes, it's official, I have control issues.
Or I am super concerned about control and management in my classroom rather than curriculum . . .
Do you think this has anything to do with the dreams I have in which I have lost all control of my class, and an administrator or curriculum cop comes in at exactly that moment, and I start crying because my first graders have revolted, and I can't find the pause button on the remote control?
Or is that a normal dream for a teacher?
One of my coolest blog things this year was that I hit over 1 million page views on my blog.
I'm sure I account for 500,000 or so and my family accounts for about 250,000 or so, but STILL.
Insert beaming face and puffed out chest (which has nothing to do with my actual chest size) here.
I always thank God for this blog. I am so thankful for all of my followers and new (and old) bloggy friends and just the whole dang experience all together. God is good.
So . . . with that being said, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with family and friends!
