Wow! I am feeling pretty good today! I feel like I got a lot of things done, even though there isn't much to show for it in my room. Today I tackeld some of the cabinets that I had just shoved things into. They are nice and neat and ready for the rest of the stuff that needs to go in there. I can breath a little easier now. I also got a couple more itty bitty bulletin boards up for my rules, school notes and behavior chart. It's starting to come together, but I won't be ready tomorrow like I had wanted to be done. I still have a lot of organizing to do, some rearranging and a lot of putting stuff up that still needs to be laminated. But, we don't have really have access to the laminator yet, but I may try to get to it tomorrow. We'll see how that goes.
While working, the teacher who talked my ear off yesterday was in my room again. I worked while we talked, so I got a lot done. I was telling her about "Cereal Math". I saw it posted on a blog somewhere last week (tell me if it's you!) and am going to try to implement it this year, maybe 2 or 3 days a week, or as long as we have cereal being donated! The idea of this is to work on counting skills and students can simply count it, group it into groups of #, show adding and subtracting and more. I think it's a fabulous idea and want to do it. I was sharing it with her and she's planning on doing it. I'm sure she will buy the cereal herself and go overboard with it, but I have a family to support and she doesn't, so it's easier for her to buy what she needs without feeling guilty!
I think tonight I will try to run out and do some shopping at Lakeshore and Walmart. I need to grab some more border at Lakeshore as I ran out of mine already. I'm not good at guesstimating how long things are. I also need to find some plastic tubs for my class library (which looks so pathetic comapred to others I have seen...I haven't bought new books in a very long time!) and try and level them in some way. I have never done that before I feel like a big loser in that aspect. So, to a-shopping I may go!
Speaking of big loser, what can y'all tell me about Weight Watchers? I need to do something for myself to help me get in shape and lose weight and I have heard good things, but I hate having to admit to myself and everyone else that I suck at doing it on my own and I would be in denial and move all my mirrors out of th house! I am thinking of starting it soon, but I am not a patient person and want to see results quickly! Any suggestions or feedback you have for me would be greatly appreciated!
