Five Friday on Saturday 10/18
It has been almost a month since I last linked up with Doodlebugs Teaching for Five for Friday.
My first thing from this week is this article that I came across:
I shared it with my principal, and we had a great conversation about classroom design (we passed a bond in the spring), technology, and homework. I really want to try and be at the forefront of these types of changes at our school.
My first Ipsy bag arrived this week. I have been getting Birchbox for moths now and love it. When I found out that Ipsy does a similar thing and includes a bag, I jumped on board. $10 a month and I get some great samples.
I tried all these samples. The lotion was great as was the eye liner and mask. I let my little one have the lip gloss, which I don't wear, but I did try it. My older one got the facewash. All three of us walked away happy.
I got some serious grading on Thursday while the girls were at dance class. I got lesson plans done too. I am not caught up, but I am getting there. Hopefully a few hours on Sunday will make it happen.
We didn't have students on Monday because there were parent teacher conferences in the morning and we got to leave at noon! I only had about five parents show, but I got a bulletin board changed out.
AP literature terms on the left and American founding documents and Washington, D.C. pictures on the right.
My 11th grade DOL book finally gave in this week. I knew it was happening, so I ordered a legal binder. I took the book apart ,and our librarian laminated all the pages for me. I had some trouble punching the pages, and it isn't perfect yet as it doesn't flip nicely, but I can tweak it. I supposed I might just have to buy a new one as the binder is a lot bulkier than the book...I don't know.
