Here's my version of the November Currently:
And....the Packers just scored! So we are on way to what I hope is another win. Don't you just love Aaron Rodgers? The announcers just said that his stats are "staggering"!
I loved sleeping in - need I say more about that extra hour?
We start state testing this week so there will be little time for spelling/word work. My plan is to review some of our third grade "No Excuse" words in the little time we have, and I am sending that list home to the parents.
Do you ever get that itch to move? Well - it has hit me, and I did some dangerous realtor blog stalking yesterday. Of course I found a house not too faraway that is probably way out of my teacher price range. A girl can dream can't she? Sigh...
I have a museum of computers in my clasroom. I have a 1980s era Apple IIe, a 1990s era Mac, and two PCs from the 2000s. Oh, and I now have an old laptop and an iPad. Anyway, our IT department refuses to support any of the relics, so I took one of the PCs to a local computer dealer for some work this weekend. It was fixed for a mere $20 - so we are back in business. I use these during my small group station time for the students to review skills, and the kids are motivated to use them all.
The music my classes consistently love is a little diddy from the Dole 5-a-day website. I actually got a cassette tape free from their site years ago and continue to use it. The students hear about healthy foods to eat while they dance to the fun music. You can hear the music by clicking on the link and then scrolling down to another link below the words to the song.
