Here’s what I’ve been up to . . .
I was all for it, too, because it was absolutely DIS.GUST.ING outside. I didn’t want to have anything to do with it whatsoever at all. I’ve never claimed to be an outdoorsy type of girl in the first place and this just put me over the edge.
We did lots of Go Noodle and, in this picture, we were doing Adventure to Fitness.
THANK THE GOOD LORD.
I’m happy to report that the heat wave broke and we are now enjoying temps in the high eighties and low nineties.
It’s like it’s so cold, I should go put a sweatshirt on.
My friend (and a teacher at our school) lost her baby girl seven years ago. In order to honor her memory, a bunch of us wore these bracelets, (her daughter’s initial is B) as well as the color pink to support our friend. We gave her a bracelet, too.
We love you, Nicole!
This is a Vocabulary Four Square – my kids love it! We have five words a week and we pick one word to do this with. We all voted for mammoth because it’s such a cool word (and our other words were stem, fluttering, and, well . . . now I can’t remember . . . ) and we loved saying “mammoth” all week. The story that comes with our vocabulary unit was all about mammoth sunflowers which is why this example has a sunflower and not an Earth to match her sentence. I actually like that it doesn’t match because she gave TWO examples! Tho thmart!
And, just in case you want to know, our vocabulary words come from our Houghton Mifflin curriculum called Curious About Words and it includes a big book. And if you give me a big book, I like it. The End.
I am obsessed with this show.
Obviously, I am a reality TV show junkie. I think we know that. But even the hubby watches this show with me. And, sometimes, we even watch After Dark on the TV Guide Channel.
The season finale is this Wednesday. Waaaaaa. I don’t want it to end. I’m rooting for Derrick now that Nicole, Hayden, and Donny are out of the house.
And, PS, I do an amazing Victoria impression. And I’m not talking about her lack of physicality (although I’ve got that nailed, too), I’m talking about her voice.
I crack the hubs up.
And myself, too.
I had a request (or maybe five or six – I’m telling you, these requests for products are going straight to my head) for some SUPER DUPER RIDICULOUSLY EASY (their words, not mine) Partner Plays for Kinder Kids at the beginning of the year. I was asked to make the font huge, the picture clues huge, and have no more than five words in a sentence.
So I went from writing plays for Advanced Readers to writing a play that looks something like this:
Kinder Teachers That I Admire Because I Don’t Think I Could Ever Do It — whatcha think?
And there you have it.
I must now go grab a sweatshirt . . . I think it dipped down to 87 degrees . . . Brrrrrr.
