Job Day!

Today was Job Day for us.  Kids could dress up to show what they want to be when they grow up.  It was a great way to end our Economics unit on Goods & Services, Needs & Wants and Community Helpers.  My kids rocked it this year!
From the front on the left:  astronaut doctor, ballerina, baby sitter, dentist, mad scientist, engineer  Next row:  nurse, cop, pastor, president, artist, copy, professional football player.  Next row:  athlete, hairstylist, tooth fairy, nurse, construction worker & mathematician.
  
I was a cupcake baker but forgot to get a picture of myself.

I love seeing what they want to be.  This is how we start the day:
 
My favorite part was going on a Job Day parade where we show off what we want to be to the rest of the grade level.  So much fun.

I had to giggle during guided reading:
I don't often get to read with the Tooth Fairy and an Astronaut Doctor!

Our 5th grade buddies also came down to help us make a neighborhood about of paper bags.  I love how they turned out.
I put a bunch of paper out but ended up taking out glitter, cotton balls, pom poms, and popsicle sticks.   

One more day of the BIG TPT Sale!

I'm in love with...

Molly over at Lucky to Be in First is hosting a fun linky just in time for Valentine's Day.

Here are some of my favorite things...in no specific order.



I love all things Mac!


I'm counting my two girls and my new niece Abby :)


I can never resist a good cupcake :)


I can't imagine teaching anything else.  It is where I feel at home.


I love being a part of the blogging community and feel very lucky to be a seller on TPT.


I actually have more of a love/hate relationship with my cat.  He is currently sleeping next to me so I am feeling the love.

Link up with Molly with your loves!

Big week!

This was a week full of Wows!

Tuesday morning (1:21am to be exact) I got a text from my sister that she had her baby!  I jumped into action and raced to the hospital to meet Abigail Joy!

Boy, was I tired that day at work....but it was totally worth it to meet her.

I was on a big high until about Thursday when I had conferences.  That was also the day we noticed that Harry Kindergarten's songs weren't working on YouTube.  I use his songs All.The.Time.  He has put some back on but has to rework several of them before putting them back.  Phew!

I took my girls to go see Abigail yesterday.

Fast friends for sure.

Currently-February 2014 Edition

It's here!  Hopefully the month where I can get on schedule and get stuff done!  I feel like January was kind of a wash since we had so many cold days, late starts and vacation days.  I only taught for one full week.  Ugh!

Here is my February Currently...

Listening...Anyone else a little sad that Good Luck Charlie is ending?  It's one of the only shows I can tolerate on Disney.

Loving...I used to dance.  For like 10 years.  I love it and can't get enough of the Just Dance games.  My youngest and I love the new 2014 one.  

Thinking...I signed up for my first 5K-The Run or Dye with a coworker.  I need to start working on running more!  Aargh!

Wanting...Yep!  I'm getting my students back on a schedule.  

Needing...my own two girls keep getting crud.  I have avoided it so far but it isn't fun to see them so miserable.

2 Truths and a Fib.

1.  I love to ski...FIB...I actually don't.  I'm not a typically Minnesotan because I don't ski, snowmobile, ice fish, snowboard or do much else outside in the winter.  I do go tubing with my kids but that doesn't take any skill.


2.  I love to cook...TRUTH.  I love planning my meals for the week and cooking.  It relaxes me.

3.  I love Redvines.  TRUTH.  There are two camps on my grade level team.  Redvines vs. Twizzlers.  What team are you on?

What is your Currently?
