Random Thoughts Wednesday

This really isn't going to be teacher related? I guess. I've been bursting at the seams to post all of this fabulous stuff we've been doing in lil' old room 127, but I came home completely intent on posting all night and then it happened... the internet stopped working. Stop. the. presses. Me equals almost in tears. I basically hyperventilate without internet connection. So here I am... in a delirious state. I've cleaned for 4 hours, I just sat down. There's basically nothing worse than working all day with 25 third graders, then coming home and cleaning (Okay so maybe there is... I know most of you have kids and have to clean after a full day. That would most def. be worse)! Sidenote before I begin... I now have to brand every photo I post, as some loosey goosey is claiming my photos as their own. Creepers! So alas I present to you... my random thought Wednesday:

has anyone ever gotten to school planned on doing 8 million things and instead plugged in the laminator? (is that even how you spell laminator?) Anyway... Tuesday my intention was to do all sorts of stuff, laminate a few things, then be on my way. This is what the result was. I laminated the pants off everything. Plus I'm revamping things because: 1. I constantly need to change things 2. I'm trying to start changing things over to next years theme. I was so disappointed when the bell rang and I realized I wasted the entire morning!

{friday - dismissal took roughly 45 minutes because of this madness}

{ordered these boots on halloween - they just arrived in the past 2 weeks}
{note:so worth the wait}

{i'm officially in PANIC mode - i have completely run out of space}
{that little space in the middle used to be my board, now expository just gets rolled up all day}

{is anyone else crazy about giving tests in the middle of a week?}
{i hate giving tests on like wed/thurs, then i'd have to start a new unit on like a thurs or fri}
{so we did an AIMS tangram lesson - these are the best LOL, they crack me up!}
{i heart the turtle!}

{the final copies of the picture part of the adverb project!}
{they put an INSANE amount of detail! i couldn't believe it!!}
{i'll post the final results this weekend - hopefully - when they're done}

{it was wear red day - red for perseverance month}
{these were the only red shoes I had, i freakin' love them they are so comfy - i pinky promise}
{i have them in nude, black, these, and i want them in the bright pink - but the boy said no way lol}
{anyway apparently a few 1st graders said they wanted me cuz I wore pretty shoes}
{i. heart. kids.}

I told you I was going to be random. Anyway the pencil sharpener... still GOING STRONG. As if there was ever any doubt! I even dared, I know it was dangerous, to sharpen 2 colored pencils today! They sharpened no problem! The kiddos have even used it! I think I need to find a permanent place for it and it'll be even easier 'cuz they won't have to steady it. I need some reason to do a giveaway soon, cuz Troy said he'd do a giveaway with me! I'd be happy given one of those bad boys away. That's it. I promise more teacher/school related posts tomorrow!!

I am COMPLETELY with you in the "I have NO room" issue! In our district we are only allowed to cover 20% of our wall space (fire hazards and such) leaving me with absolutely NO room for charts, posters, student work, etc. I have room for about 4 charts to be up at a time so they are constantly changing and not staying up for student use ... frustrating!

P.S. sorry bout your pictures....that's WEIRD!
