Yesterday we were back to school after Spring Break, and I certainly started the week off on the wrong foot! As I got out of the car, I spilled coffee ALL down my shirt…FAIL! (Quick commercial for Tide To-Go Pen…worked a miracle!) Then about half way through morning I noticed there was a general “tittering” around the room. I finally stopped the lesson and demanded what was going on. One of my sweetest little girls raised her hand and said, “Miss, you’re wearing two different shoes.”
“Why yes, yes I am!” Second FAIL! Now, in my defense, I get dressed at about 5:45am, and this was the first day back after spring break so I was rather sleepy. Also, I had on long trouser pants, so when I looked down my feet looked like this:
You can hardly tell, right?
Ei, yi, yi! My kids got such a big kick out of this and I had a good laugh too. We decided that Friday would be mismatch shoe day in Miss O’s class.
Life sure does teach this nerdy teacher not to take herself too seriously!
You can tell it’s the last week of summer school because silliness abounds! I looked up during the 5th grade lab time today and this is what I saw:
They thought this was SOOO funny, and they were right! Here is my favorite:
Bahahah, how cute is that?! I love working with kids, they crack me up all day long.
Quick post today, I feel like I didn’t get much done today after school. But I did transform a cupboard into a bookshelf
This is what it looked like “Before”, right smack in the middle of my classroom library.
I think at one point all these shelves might have been cupboards, all they need is a screwdriver and a little elbow grease.
I spent the rest of the afternoon sorting picture books and non fiction books, I am afraid that I’m still going to be short on shelf space, but we’ll see! I ran out of book baskets AGAIN! So back to Dollar Tree I went, then a quick stop at WalMart for a few more Name Tag Holders. My credit card record looks like this: Dollar Tree, WalMart, DollarTree, WalMart, DollarTree WalMart… I think I’m done now, but I’ve said that before. That’s all folks. I have to finish putting all my stuff away by Friday because (a) I’m leaving for Minnesota on Saturday, (b) Our amazing custodians are cleaning and detailing my room next week. So there’s my incentive to get ‘er done.
