Anyway, here is my first post back about myself using Farley's Currently.
I'm not too much of a Winter Olympics person but I will watch with my son since he enjoys some of the events.
I have been needing to fix my ceiling in my main bathroom for my visitors for sometime. I had paint peeling from the ceiling and the bottom half of the wall was not pretty. It was one room that I didn't paint or fix before we moved in. We have lived here 5 years and I am just now getting that bathroom done because there is a good chance we will be moving. I guess that was my motivation to get a start on it. It does feel good to have gotten at least half of it done. Now I just need to pick the paint that I want and finish it up.
My next two weeks are going to be a little crazy. I will only teach 3 full days. Isn't that nuts? I have a day and a half of workshops to go to this next week. Monday, Feb. 17 we don't have school because of President's Day. Then that Tuesday, Feb. 18 we have a District In-Service so I have another meeting to go to. Feb. 19-21 we have Parent-Teacher Conferences so the students will leave at 1:30 in the afternoon. Busy! Busy! Busy! But I'm not BUSY teaching students. (Interesting!)
So that brings me to my WANTING. I need 3 good productive days with my students. Well planned lessons with good content. I am very thankful for teachers that have shared lesson ideas about attributes. We are starting this in math and I really don't think our Math Series does a good job of teaching this subject.
Math is my weak stop. I LOVE READING!! I will research and redo documents for reading instruction and plan wonderful lessons for my students but when it comes to math, I just don't have that same love for it. I am trying really hard this year to learn to love it. It is part of my GOALS for this year. We have read a lot about Number Talks and Discussions. It has been interesting but my brain just loves reading more. What does a girl do??
Truths ~ We did have 3 snow days this last week and I was by the third day going stir crazy. I live in a small town and we were pretty much snowed in. Couldn't leave for much. I was so ready by Friday to go back to work. :) My Fib ~ I did not go out and shovel any sidewalks. It was way too cold, plus I have a bad back so shoveling snow is not a good idea for me.
Hope you enjoyed my Currently for February. It feels good to be back.
Until Next Time,
