First Day Back & a Freebie

Well, I did it.  I survived the first day back.

Okay, I'm only kidding.  It really wasn't bad.  I was glad to see my kiddos and enjoyed hearing about all the goodies they got for Christmas. 

I wasn't as tired as I thought I would be.  Well, let me rephrase that.  I wasn't as tired this morning as I thought I would be, because I can do one night of minimal sleep.  I didn't get tired until I came home and sat down to check facebook check pinterest blog stalk do lesson plans.  Yes, I've gotten lots of lesson planning done...sure.

Something notable that happened today was I found out I'm losing one of my kiddos.  Tomorrow.  It kills me.  This particular student had a rough year in 2nd grade.  This kiddo is so bright and so sweet and I was just really sad.  I had an all boys class today since both of my girls were out, although I'm pretty sure one of them is also gone permanently.  Again, another sweetheart.  Plus, these two students are two of my higher students so that's another reason I hate to see them go.  I know they would do well on the state test and make our school proud.

Okay, off of that soapbox, I just had to share. 

Thanks to those of you for your comments on my last post.  Chrissy B, you literally had me laughing out loud.  My things do the same "whee" trip from school and back.

It was freezing here today.  I refused to go outside.  My kiddos were thrilled to find out we would have indoor recess.  Do your kids like indoor recess?  Mine love it for some strange reason.  I like it because I can sit and try to get organized while they're playing.  I allow two kids to play on the SMART Board and this was an interaction I heard today between them:
A:  It's my turn!
B.  No, it's still my turn.  You gotta give a brother a minute!
Then, they accidentally hit the orientation button, and of course just randomly hit a few of the centers.  It was nowhere near oriented and I had a good laugh watching them try to navigate writing and erasing.  SO funny.

The hubsters loves the show Storage Wars.  It has been on pretty much since we got home.  Have y'all seen this show?  It is kind of addicting. 

I feel like I should share something with you, since you had to deal with my rambling.  Not sure if it would be helpful, but it would probably only be to those of you who have a bathroom in your classroom.  This is what I used.  It seems to work and the kiddos know if they yell the issue out then they have to take care of it.  Maybe this is helpful?  I don't know.  Hope you're doing well!
