Happy Sunday, everyone! The winds were CRAZY yesterday, and now it is calm, but they’re coming back tomorrow. I am trying to figure out a way to have a positive attitude about inside recess. I will definitely put Adventure to Fitness on and maybe put some Kahlua in my coffee.
I still have the same library situation except that it’s even scarier around the holidays. Here’s why. Our librarian decorates the library (or maybe her parent helpers do) with all kinds of wonderful wintry goodness. She even puts up a Christmas tree which I really don’t think is “allowed” but my principal is not going to tell on her, either (she lives in fear, too). The library looks so cute during the holidays. It’s begging to have a play or a sing along or something.
The library may be festive but it’s just a cover. Nothing has changed. The holiday books set out on top of the bookcases are just for looks. Save yourselves.
I have a new library parent volunteer every month. My December mom comes for the first time this Tuesday. She has no idea what she is in for. I hope she survives. I really need her to come back the week before break. You know I’m not going. Nope.
While my kids wait their turn and stay behind in the safety of the classroom with me, I am going to have them do another roll-the-dice activity. The turkey one was a hit so here we go again. I also solved my dice problem–our math program, enVision, gave us a set of FOAM DICE. I only had 40 and I need 60 so I just borrowed my partner’s. We go to the library (or should I say, we make our kids walk the plank — she doesn’t go, either) on different days. We just swapped dice. Foam Dice is wonderful. WONDERFUL. Plus, all of the dice are yellow. So I do not have to hear whines of “I wanted the blue ones.” or “Oh man, I hate this color.” or “Teacher, he said hate! He said hate!”
Here is your copy:
Winter Tree Roll the Dice
I hope you can use it!
Oh and if I have said dice when I was supposed to say die, I don’t really care.
And just for clarification, I would not put Kahlua in my coffee. I would just put it in my travel mug straight.
Leave me some love if you grab it!
