Photos from My Week

Back to work!!! I have had three busy days of work. The kids have been pretty good and we have started some new units.

Here are some photos of what I am teaching:

I love that I have a weekly computer time. I am hoping to teach power point soon. 

Fractions Vocabulary.
 I did an activity with folding a square and one kido said "This is the best math lesson ever." 

We just finished this unit. This was a review game. 

We are learning how to use a thesaurus. 

I am really pushing the kids to read harder nonfiction texts.
 One of my students said " This is hard work!" and he is one of my high kidos!

My shopping adventure.

Yesterday my Mom and I went on a bus which took us to Grove City Outlets. Getting up at 6 AM was tough until I saw the stores and shopped, shopped, shopped!

I bought some cute tops from Old Navy & NYand CO (who knew there was an outlet NY&Co?), a pair of jean shorts from The Loft, and gold fish. YES! GOLD FISH! There was a Pepperidge Farm store there and everything was 1.25!!! They had whole grain cheesy fish and s'mores flavored, and mint milanos... Today I am wishing I had bought more delicious treats. LOL

Here is the reason I wanted to go:

Heaven... plus 50% off the whole store!  
When we left, there was a line of people waiting outside to go inside! 


I scored these for 80.00 !! 
My Mom also bought three items ! 

It was a lot of fun and I cannot wait to go back again! 

I went back to work today and I was happy to see the second graders. They had a lot of tales to share from their week of vacation. I will post some pictures of what I am now teaching some time this week!

My Vacation or Should I say: Staycation

My break has been uneventful and that is a good thing. Work has had me stressed and I am finding it difficult to find a work/play balance! I needed this week off! 

Shown below are pictures of my week thus far: 

I have enjoyed sleeping in, having my morning coffee while watching Hoda and Kathie Lee, reading a few books, and seeing friends this week. 

I plan to wrap up my vacation by doing a little of this:
