Happy Tuesday!! The weather man says we’re going to have bad storms tonight, so I am predicting a day of teaching with no electricity. It happens frequently at my school. Two years ago, we had 9 (yes, NINE) days with no power through the course of the year! And yes, we had school everyone of those days. It’s crazy to teach without electricity. You think, “Oh I will do this..” Um nope. Electricity. And try convincing monsters that the computers aren’t going to work even if Mr. Greg turns them on! No really, they still will not work. I promise. Batten down the hatches!!!
During our morning meeting, I always tell the monsters our daily schedule to get them excited about the day. I also tell them if we have new centers in math and reading. Today I told them we had new centers in math (reading will roll out tomorrow!) and they got excited! Then I told them that the centers were FOOTBALL! Hello excitement! Even the girls were excited! One of them yelled out, “OMG I LOVE FOOTBALL!” And did they ever! They were so engaged!
And check out this HUGE give away at Growing Firsties! The word on the street is that Growing Firsties has a crush!
