Here is this month's version of Farley's Currently. I am a couple days late to the party - oh well.
I'm (hopefully) joining friends and family for a little get-away to Chicago in a couple weekends. Can't wait!
I ordered some pendant lights for my kitchen, and am patiently waiting for a friend to install them. There's something about a small change that can cure the winter doldrums.
My pet peeve has to do with those people that sugar coat things on report cards. As I finished the cards for my class of 28 last week, I took a peek at their previous reports. There were some who had glowing report cards, and that summary didn't seem to match the collected data we had on them. In one case, I referred a student for further testing and she scored in the CD range. The psych and LD teacher keep asking me how she got this far with such blatant needs. I have had no answers.
I wanted to give a shout out to Ashley at The Resource Room Teacher - I won a copy of her Touchdown Number Sentences Pack, and I'm sure my students will love this Super Bowl follow-up activity. Thanks Ashley!
