1. Well, we are officially on Spring Break people! Albuquerque area schools are on vacation. Thursday and Friday were P/T conferences for my school. The weather was pretty great too. It was about 70 in town, 65 or so where I live (not exactly in the town of ABQ but close). I was loving it. Then today being my first official break/day off, I woke up and this is what I saw out my front door. Ahhh, spring. Birds sing, butterflies flutter, everyone wears a sweater and snow boots!!!
Well, this is not what I had in mind for "Spring" break but at least we are getting moisture. We need a lot more or we will end up with a big fire season during the summer months if we don't get some liquids. Soooo, that's alright.
Well, at least I could sleep in today. There I was, sleeping super hard, when at 6 a.m. I hear my beautiful daughter singing REALLY loud- the one Disney song I don't like....those Disney fanatics like me know exactly what I am talking about ...
"It's a small world after all!" So, I very unhappily woke up and got to my day. Maybe tomorrow they will let me sleep.
Ok, back to my regular school related postings.
2. Earlier posts I promised I'd get my Seuss bulletin board on here, so here it is. The scribble marks are my way of taking off the kiddos names. I wouldn't want someone posting my kid's work with their name on it, without my permission. So I do the same for others. I really like the Lorax trim. It's a bit hard to see in the pic, but I leave up the trim of Lorax until April-ish when I do a Lorax/Environmental bb. I LOVE that time of year- Earth Day! Yay! Yes, I am a tree hugger and proud of it. :)
I love the one above, "I like this character because he is a trouble maker." Isn't that great? I laughed and the kiddo thought he was pretty clever. Cute.
4. I bought a new binder specifically for organizing my blog/TpT store/ TN store. I have Jan-Dec dividers, and will be filling it with blog notes, ideas, project notes, etc. But for right now, it's empty.
I love this black and white pattern. Can't wait to start my planning and organizing.
5. I need to add to my behavior modification plans. I have a variety of things in effect, but I am working on an added piece. I want to highlight my student's positive points to help them make great choices. I will be working on the "Wall of Kindness." I do this each year, usually in the beginning of the school year, but this go 'round I want to do it now. There are a lot of sibling behaviors occurring and I want them to start focusing on kind acts rather than- "He looked at me sideways!" I will be doing this when we return from break. I will post more as we get started and have something else to tell about it.
