Today...I remembered my camera!

So I have taken my camera to school a couple times this week. And now I actually remembered to bring it home too! It has been a super crazy week topped off with a field trip tomorrow.
My goal was to get to take all of my little jewels-but alas one proved today that she does not get that privilege and another is walking a VERY fine line (today she tried to shut me in the door...). I am waiting to hear from her grandma right now actually. But here is a sneak peek into my classroom :)

The papers in the basket that I need to look at and return...ugh

The "key" for our math coloring sheet

table 1

table 2

table 3. (yes I use EVERY single chair. I have 25 kids!)

Hard at work!

finishing up some morning work before moving on.

Had to move away from everyone else so he could focus.

The green monster-he is super sweet just won't take off the coat :)

I survived the day. And I was pretty pleased with my outfit today :) Hand me downs from my little sister are always good!
Have a FABULOUS Friday!
Saturday morning I am going clam digging! I can't wait! Haven't been in a year.

My week so far...

So I have had an exhausting week already and it's only Tuesday! Yikes!
Yesterday I had my sister who is 14 and her friend come to school with me all day! AWESOME! I love having extra help that is willing to just jump in and do what is needed without prompting! They helped me prep and they got to help with 2 cute projects. I will do my best to remember my camera to take pictures tomorrow. Lots of fun was had. And one of the two of them fell asleep in the car on the way home. haha. My sister commented, "I don't know why I'm so tired-it's not like I did that much." Welcome to the world of Kindergarten-complete exhaustion.

Today we had MORE visitors! I didn't tell the kids yesterday. I waited until this morning and only told 2 kids who was coming. They kept the secret. My mom, step dad and sister all came by to meet the kids I talk about all the time on their way out of town for their spring break. So awesome! I seriously tell stories to them ALL THE TIME-now they can put a face to the stories. Even better was that they jumped in and read to the kids! Kiddos loved it and so did I. Really wish I would have had my camera!

Tomorrow is wednesday...and a HALF DAY for the kiddos! Meetings for me in the afternoon then on to costco, dollar tree and probably the grocery store. Then home to get some cleaning done-I hope.

My whole family and my friends are ALL on spring break this week...while I work. My break isn't until the 3rd week of April! But I am hoping that will help with the super long month of May at least a little.

Tonight I baked some muffins for the class tomorrow so that they can celebrate the music teachers birthday with him. They made him a birthday book today-they wrote what they like about music. My favorite was "I like music because Mr. S is funny." Haha. They also colored some very lovely cupcakes on the pages.

Time to go get something done oh and probably eat some dinner.
Happy 81st birthday to my Grandpa!

currently...and a long week

So the last post I did was about losing a teacher at our school-it made it a LONG week for us staff. The service was yesterday, it was very nice. I don't think there was a dry eye in the place-3 of her current students talked. Then the class released balloons and sang "You are my Sunshine"-so sweet.

Now on to happier things!

I went bowling last night. SO FUN! Haven't been bowling in a LONG time. I was with very fun people and we had a great time! Doesn't hurt that I bowled really well-for me. I got a 158 :)

Oh and I saw The Lorax in 3D last week. AMAZING! I absolutely LOVED it! Now I know why the kiddos couldn't stop talking about it.

Tomorrow my little sister and her friend (who are on spring break this week-don't remind me) are coming to school with me ALL DAY to help! Hooray for extra help! I take whatever I can get!

My currently this month:

Go see Farley.

Happy April Fools day. It is now time to go call my grandpa and tell him that he has a spider in his hair.
