I was MIA all week due to being back to work and hubby being out of town. I give a lot of credit to all the single parents out there...it is exhausting! Since I was gone I wanted to make sure I had a fun blog post for you :)
I finished my classroom! I am so excited for how it looks! I call it Dr. Seuss for big kids :)
My birthday was yesterday and it was absolutely wonderful! My coworkers all sang Happy Birthday to me in our meeting, a few of us went to lunch and I was serenaded my the waiters at the Mexican restaurant, my dear friend brought me chocolate covered strawberries from edible arrangements, and my BFF endure my birthday workout at Cross Fit with me. My hubby asked me what I wanted and I asked for him to go out of his comfort zone and help the boys make me something. He did a fabulous job with them in just one day, see below to see what I received!
4. Cross Fit
I am proud of myself, and my BFF, for keeping up with our workouts now that school has started back. Everyday we remind ourselves we have a 4:15 appointment with our friend and coach. Just looking at going to workout as a personal appointment has made a huge impact on ensuring we workout everyday.
5. Reading Response Notebooks
Each night my students are to read 30 minutes and write a response to their reading. I usually use a large paper cutter to cut spiral notebooks in half for these response journals, however this year I am trying composition notebooks. I had my hubby cut them in half with a saw, apparently a table saw would work better...note from hubby :). I glued a small piece a of ribbon to the back cover so students can mark the page they are on, and then glued the weekly assignments on the front inside cover.
