Since I was feeling back to normal this week, I finally got to do a little spring clothes shopping. Got a couple new dresses at Ross and shorts from Target. All my clothes from last spring and summer are too big (that's a good problem to have I keep telling myself), and I'm having a hard time finding capris. Everything is skinny legged and I have "big" calves so they are all uncomfortable. I'm not giving up, I've got to find some! Did a little school shopping too - found these cuties at Michaels on Wednesday.
I have flipped my math classroom this year, starting in January, and love it! As do the kids! They watch the video lesson at home and then when we start math, we do math centers and do the "homework" activities in class with me! Since I go back on Monday and the kiddos come back on Tuesday, I had to get back to making videos today for next week. We are tackling Geometry when we go back!
Being a 22 iPad classroom has its advantages and disadvantages. Managing all these devices was a project I set for myself for track-out. To get them with all the same apps, all updated to the new iOS, charged, etc. Well I managed to get them all charged today...but internet at home can't manage so many devices, so I guess I'll have to spend some time Monday during my workday trying to get them somewhat alike! I may try to tackle some again at home this weekend, just a couple at a time maybe :)
Our school does all kinds of fundraisers, silent auctions, etc throughout the year to support classrooms. Last year, our parent group began a day of celebration called Eaglefest. Most elementary classrooms do a silent auction item with all the proceeds for their item coming back to their classroom. This year I decided to do two buckets/baskets for the silent auction - Movie Night and Gardening are our themes. Put my new Cricut Explore to use and cut vinyl letters to go on my buckets this week. Can't wait to get them filled up!
(Ignore the mess in the buckets - they are being storage right now with stuff going back to school next week!)
This is actually last week, but Frozen and Saving Mr. Banks finally came out last week on DVD! We were having some more winter weather that morning, but I "braved" the "terrible" roads (that's what the news said at least) to head out to Target first thing and get them both. Enjoyed a movie day and can't wait to watch each one again and again!
