Listening: Jake the Pirate. All day today. All day every day. Lilly loves her some Jake. At least it's not Gabba Gabba anymore!
Loving: Like I said, I didn't work today. So this means I'll have kids tomorrow, Wednesday, a half-day Thursday (for professional development) and none of Friday. I'm going to a class so myself so I can have student teachers. Yippie!
Thinking: Last night I stayed up late finishing plans and my pre-conference form for my observation scheduled on Wednesday. Today my co-teacher called and told me the kids won't be ready for the math lesson I had planned last night until Thursday... meaning I have to create a new lesson tonight and new pre-conference form. No big deal really, except for the fact that I don't feel like doing it over again! See why I'm trying to talk myself into "Stop whining, Mandy. Just stop!"
Wanting: I want my husband to come home from his deployment already! When he isn't here I don't have anyone to whine to. And if he were here, he'd tell me to get over and just write new plans!
Needing: I love Diet Mt. Dew much more than water. I realize it is so bad for me, but it's kind of my addiction. I'm hoping if I write down the fact that I MUST stop, that I'll actually stop.
2 truths and a fib:
Fib: I WAS born in Germany but I don't speak ANY German. And I do mean any! My mother is of course fluent because that's where she grew up, but I didn't catch on!
Truth: When my husband gets back next month we're taking a weekend long trip to Disney. SO excited!
Truth: I've started the registration process and if all goes as planned, I'll be starting graduate school classes in May. Hello, master's degree, goodbye life!
Be sure to join the party and link up with Farley from Oh' Boy Fourth Grade!
There are... mathematical practices posters, the scientific process posters, and reading strategies and skills posters (by Blair Turner). Some of the posters are ones that I created, but mostly they're the lovely work of Blair.
Enjoy your week, friends!
