Five for Friday - 9/26


Good Friday Morning! This week's edition for 5 for Friday is liable to be all over the place!

1 - I  had planned to go see College Girl this weekend, but then she told me she would be busy, so I changed my plans. Then College Girl sent me a text mid-afternoon Wednesday, saying she wasn't feeling well. And later that night, her text said she wished I was coming up. Another change in plans, and I'm leaving soon to visit her. Yea! Cuz I love seeing that girl!

2 - I had a crazy day yesterday - I was out of school because I had two doctor's appointments, and then an emergency "replace the water heater" visit from the plumber, so it was very nice when I ran by school to get something quick to see the sub note that said I had a great class. Thank you my little friends, for behaving well when I'm not there.

3 - While my plumber friends were here, I got my lesson plans sketched out for the next 6 weeks. Oh, happy day!

4 - I noticed while my students were doing turn and talk this week {or buddy talk, or whatever fun name you call it} that it just sounded like a bunch of noise. So I asked the para that comes in my room a couple times to day, to help me. It was so funny, the kids were giggling so much. First we talked at the same time, and not at all about math {which was what we were supposed to be talking about} and then she even got up and started looking for a pencil! The kids knew right away what was wrong, and the discussions for the rest of that day were better. I'm hoping that continues.

5 - We don't have school today! My poor newbie teacher that I mentor, she has to go for new teacher in-service, which she is not looking forward to at all. But all us old folks, are enjoying the day off. I hope you enjoy your day, whatever it brings!


  1. Enjoy your weekend with College Girl! Your modeling sounds perfect. I also like to choose kids to help me model all the time. The kids get a kick out of it and it drives home the point.
