9/6 Five for Friday

I'm thinking as I go here - I hope I can count to 5!
1 - I love my class! And so did my sub yesterday, the science teacher, the school counselor, and even people at church have heard! 
 I have enjoyed my 3 weeks with them. I've got a smile on my face. It's a good year and I'm just going to be happy about it.
2 -Finally getting used to my totally different than before schedule! Math's in the morning - our afternoon is Long! Lunch is early, etc., etc., etc.
3 -
My hub bub and I went to Denver last weekend - watched the Rockies lose and Todd Helton NOT hit his 2500 {he did it the next day}; went to a wonderful little biscuit place sorta downtown that was delish! I had a strawberry shortcake one - yum; went to the this hole in the wall Mexican food place - double yum - probably the best meal there; first trip to Container Store - bought some fun stuff; and went to the Aquarium, which I was thinking I wasn't too excited about until we started seeing all sorts of cool things like a sea turtle, manta rays and sharks and so on! 
Is this not the coolest - it's a manta ray's underside, he's going up the glass tunnel that separates us.
{hee hee - I bought a bumper sticker like this - but it said Dear Math Book... for my daughter when she was having a wee bit of problem with her math class.} Going without a workbook for the first time ever in Math - and it hasn't been too bad. I've made up problems and shown the on the Smartboard - and I'm able to add all my munchkins names - so it's like a treat. Today I had one that one boy had 9 aliens at his house - so I asked him if his mom knew about that. He said she didn't :)
5 - Work Weekend - 
Our reading series {Houghton Mifflin's Journeys} does units of 5 lessons, so I like to plan those five weeks of lessons and get them out of the way. Then I just have to tweak them the week before. So that's what I'm going to be doing this weekend - holed up in the basement, chained to the computer. But I'll be glad to get them done!
Ok, so link up if you want - if you have something to share. 


  1. I had a boy who also had aliens at his house, so... I get that! ;) AND- I have a totally different schedule, too, that I am trying to love. I have to give it some time this weekend to wrap my mind around it! :) Glad you love your class!!!

  2. Sounds like math will be an adventure this year! I hope the lack of a math workbook becomes something that you thoroughly enjoy. Have you read Vanderwalle's book? It's really good.

  3. Sweet post. I have 29 kids and I have to learn to love that! The kids are precious, I just think it's not fair to have classes that are so big. The kids deserve more attention! I too will be lesson planning all weekend but we'll be so happy next week when it all goes smoothly! I hope you get some time away from the computer!
