I feel extremely accomplished today. I was determined to get some things done in my classroom. My plans almost came crashing down when I saw this in front of my hallway.
Curse you wet wax!
I found my janitor and he said if I was careful I could tiptoe across to my room (3rd door on the right). Crisis averted!
Well, all my furniture was pushed off the carpet and I was told I couldn't put anything back on it. A few years ago, it got so hot that my carpet grew mold. Ewww! They were worried about the heat and the dampness of the carpet again. We don't have air conditioning and this was the temp today.
Note to self: Clean car!
Anyway, since I couldn't move furniture, I decided to do some much needed organizing. I have a ton of cupboards and I haven't really cleaned them out in several years. The first thing I did was inspired by Pinterest.
Now all of my read alouds are in my otherwise unused file cabinet. I MIGHT have a slight obsession with Mo Willems' books. See all the Piggie & Elephant books?
Anyway, I then went through almost all my cupboards and purged. By the end of the day, I did feel accomplished BUT very, very sweaty. Gross. I picked up my girls and hit the shower.

I have always greeted my students at the door with the 5 H's. They are Hello, Hand bump, High Five, Hug or a Handshake. I made this last year so my students would have a visual reminder of what they could pick from.
I updated the file a bit and am offering it to you as a Facebook Fan Freebie!
Let me know if you grab it!
A HUGE thank you to Ashley from The School Supply Addict for her tutorial on Fangate.
Last, I was shopping yesterday with my girls and found these at Michaels!
But, then, we went next door to Toys R Us and found these!
Crayola smelly markers! I'm not so sure I'd want the Barnyard scent but the rest seem okay. I was thinking about giving them away for birthdays this year instead of my usual coma inducing Giant Pixie-Stick on a balloon. They would also be fun for Word Work.
One last reminder that Thursday is the day!
If you can make it, we'd love to see you!
