Palling around with Principals was a HOT TOPIC (as they would say on The View which I have not laid eyes on since the summer . . . for all I know, all of the hosts could have been replaced with new ones or maybe it’s even off the air . . . either way, it was SUMMER, aka, the good ole days). I loved reading all of your comments. Many of them made me think that I should elaborate.
While I don’t consider myself “friends” with my principal, I do have to say that we are on friendly terms. She appears to like me, trusts my judgment, and has never moved me out of first grade. I feel like I can go to her with any old thing and she’ll at least pretend to listen. However, I NEVER go to her for any old thing. Or any new thing. I just steer clear, in the same way that a gazelle runs in the opposite direction of a tiger (do you like how I consider myself a graceful gazelle? Rather than a meerkat? Or a hyena?) . And let’s be honest. She doesn’t care if we wear flip flops in hot weather or Uggs in cool weather even though SHE wears high heels EVERY SINGLE DAY. I have yet to see her wear jeans or pants of any kind. Or any of our spirit wear. And I have been working with her for NINE WHOLE YEARS.
Well, I wish I could think of something else to say. Something to fill up this space before I make you all mad at me.
OH! I know! Here’s something!
Someone asked me if I am into the Twilight books and movies. Let me answer that question with some questions of my own. Are you looking forward to Winter Vacation?? Does a first grader tattletale? Is it true that bathroom doors can cut off fingers? I THINK SO!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 AFFIRMATIVE!!
Okay . . . the time has come. I have some bad news.
When I asked you if you might be interested in the Morning Work that I created, I wasn’t offering it up. I was just genuinely wondering if anyone would be interested because I have created it to go with MY particular Language Arts and Math curriculum and pacing guides and all that business. I really meant it when I said I had no idea HOW I would share it because it’s huge. It’s one folder on my computer with 34 folders inside of it and inside each folder are ten worksheets (five Language Arts and five Math). Do you see the complexity of this situation??
I would LOVE to just fly all over the country in a helicopter and rain down Morning Work on everyone who asked for it. Or better yet, instead of a helicopter, in a sleigh with reindeer!!! 🙂
Oh, peeps, and chickadees, please don’t be upset with me. 🙁
I am thinking I will offer it up in a giveaway, but instead of emailing you the file (which will be next to impossible the way I organized it on my computer), I will ship you a wonderful package and all of the work will be in there, copied, and ready to go. A MASTER SET. Imagine. I could even tie a bow on it (I am clapping my hands) and give it away to
one two THREE people!!!
And just to butter you up and make sure you don’t go away all upset with me (which I wouldn’t be able to stand!!! I wouldn’t even be able to lay down and sleep!! I would just have to SIT. No standing or sleeping or anything. Just sitting in my own thoughts and feeling really bad), I am offering you THIS FREEBIE. Which, quite possibly, I have already given away. I’m losing track. But next week, we introduce digraphs in our CORE CURRICULUM so I’ll be
throwing this gently setting this down in front of them for some *fun* cut and pasting time. I don’t know what it is, but this class is SUPER QUIET during cut and pasting time. I don’t know if it’s the cutting or the smell of the glue. Anywho, maybe you can use it in your word work center or whatever. It’s just a bribe for you to still like me.
