Five for Friday: The First Week
My first week of school is over, and I am linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching for Five for Friday.
I got to post my chapter of the the book study on The Together Teacher this week. I was probably crazy for doing it the first week of school. I am hosting a giveaway in honor of that book study.
I was on the giving and receiving end of some great gifts this week.
My coworker in the ELA Department celebrated her birthday on Tuesday (our first day of school). We celebrated with cookies at lunch, and the other English teacher and I made her a gift. We got her a new mug filled with chocolate and this printable.
My mother made this wonderful wreath for me for my classroom door. It even has a great frame in the middle, which is now on my desk.
I accomplished a project in organizing my personal Google Drive. My school one is a whole different project for another day. Read about what I did.
My own beauties had their first day of school. Eighth and Second grade for them this year.
I have no picture for this one, but I survived. I survived humidity over 70% each day with temps above 75 for a feels-like temp of 91. However, my third floor classroom felt much worse. I survived all of our technology including phones going down the first day of school because of a new teacher and a glitch in the system. I survived the district running out of paper on day three of the year because someone forgot to order it. I can do IT!
