Friday has arrived! I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday! I always love these posts and reading what other teachers are up to. Here is what is going on in my piece of the teaching world!
On Saturday my family and I went to the horse races! It was a beautiful day in Washington – the weather was gorgeous! I ate way too much kettle corn and didn’t win any of the bets, but hey, it was fun at least. I like to pretend I know what I am doing, and no I am not just betting two dollars on horses who have the nicest names….. really I’m not…
Well that nice weather was short lived. Welcome to boot season! I don’t mind because fall is my favorite time of year, but I literally went from sandals, to boots, to sandals in the span of a few days. I am still undecided every morning as we are in that transition time! One day I got to wear these babies though, woo hoo!
I am telling you that leggings, skirts and boots are like the comfiest clothes ever and they make me want to sleep in my work clothes so that I can get up even later in the mornings (I promise I won’t really do this…tempting as it is). Mornings and I have a very much hate relationship.
There is no love there.
We did a ton in class this week about attributes and sorting. One of my favorite activities was this button sorting freebie from 2care2teach4kids. It was perfect after all of the Pete the Cat reading we did! This friend in the picture sorted their buttons by shape!
I love these ecards and am always finding more and more hilarious teaching ones being shared. This is my newest favorite.
I am not sick, however I have to be gone on Monday for a training and I am loathing making the lesson plans. It is seriously taking forever! There are so many procedures in kindergarten that every time I turn around I am like “oh I forgot to add that in the notes!” I also have visions of children running rampant and the poor sub being tied to a chair…..I hate being gone in only the 3rd week of school! My kids are well trained right now and doing awesome, but we are five years old people…. we need routines and whoever schedules teacher absences in September does not teach kindergarten.
My goal this year is to get my emergency sub binder really organized so that I have templates and am really prepared for the times I have to be gone. But this is added to my to-do list of 749 things so it may be awhile.
I was super excited this week to be nominated for the Liebster award! A big thanks to Teaching is a Royal Adventure for the nomination! In my previous post you can read my responses and see who I nominated!
Well, that’s it for me! How was your week? Link up and share!
