Must- Have, Blogging and Turning 36 :)

This is my third week of school and I am still running around like a crazy person.  My to-do list is disappearing s-l-o-w-l-y. Common Core, data collection, lesson plans, behavior issues, conferences, meetings, more data collection... are killing me!

Which brings me to my question:  How do you decide when to post? I get ideas, I take pictures, and then suddenly run out of time! 

I turn 36 today. I was born at midnight, so I am 35 for at least 4 more hours.   I woke up to a nice card with gift cards to Kohl's and Target from my kids and the Mr. My kids in the classroom brought beautiful cards, gift cards (Starbucks and Target), Skippy JonJones books, Skippy blank cards, Laffy taffy, cupcakes, and a beautiful bracelet. I felt spoiled...and loved :)

Happy Monday,

Meet My Class

I have twenty one students this year (so far) and they are so super cute. 13 boys and 8 girls...need to say more? :)

Since I work at a year round school, there is no need to do a lot of get to know activities, because they know each other pretty well.  The kids are grouped in tracks were there are two classrooms per track. Each year the classes change a little bit, but for the most part everyone knows everyone.

You have seen those classroom bingo games, right? The ones were they are to find someone who...  Well, I did just that.  I found someone who loves to eat chicken wings, someone who has freckles, someone who has a pet, etc.

Meet My Class :)
Told you they were cute... I mean adorable!

Last week was our first week of school and we were busy! I finished my first set of assessments (AIMS Web) and this week my goal is to complete some running records. Wish me luck!
