I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! Today is one of my FAVORITE blogging days of the week. First, I am linking with The Teaching Tribune for their Summer Bloggin' Series.
1. Yes, I HATE watermelon. I can't even stand ANY type of melon! I always feel like an outcast at BBQ's because people will offer it to me, and I say "no thank you, I don't like watermelon" and I get shocked faces.
2. If you have read my blog a little, you know that I am the proud parent of a preemie!!! :) He is a 25 weeker who was born at 1 pound 9 ounces last May. It was a rough road to say the least. 98 days in the NICU, 5 surgeries, and one SUPER close call, but now when you look at him you would NEVER know he was born that early...actually, when you see him you WOULD know he was born that early because he is EVERYWHERE!!!! There is no way he would have stayed in until 40 weeks! You can see pictures of him on my "About Me" page.
3. I have never, ever, EVER seen the movie Star Wars (insert gasp here). I know that I should watch it sometime. I'm not a big movie watcher, though. I can only watch a movie one time, and I am not one of those people that have a HUGE collection of DVD's because I literally will only watch a movie once, unless it's in my top 5.
I can't wait to hop on over and meet the rest of you today!!!! :)
I am also linking today with Tara from Fourth Grade Frolics and her
We have been a little busy getting ready for our trip to Michigan, and I also have been still in school up until Thursday, but here is what I've got. :) It's also my FIRST middle school thing that I have made!
Essentially, before our students will leave math class, they will solve one last multiple choice problem on a sticky note. They MUST show their work (we're both math teachers) and put their name on it. As they walk out the door, they will stick their note up under the matching letter. A quick little "exit ticket", and honestly, what kid doesn't like a post-it note. :) The students that have the question wrong, we plan to save their sticky note until the next day and they will can try it again as past of their morning work, or get help from a classmate to coach them on the problem
Ok, well I don't have a picture of this YET, but I will today, and I will post on my Facebook page, so if you aren't follower yet, come on over for a visit. :) So, I should say that this should be I HOPE I make it. We leave for Michigan today, and with the advice of some sweet bloggers last week, we are taking the advice and leaving this evening and driving overnight (I have't done that for about 10 years!). The thing is we are traveling with an energetic 1 year old, 2 dogs, 2 kayaks, ALL of the things that the said 1 year old will need for 4 weeks, everything WE will need for 4 weeks, and the trip is about 13.5 hours!! Yikes. Wish us luck!!! ha ha
